A native Pennsylvanian, Ellie Reinhold has been living in North Carolina since 1975. She received her BFA from East Carolina University, and MFA from Penn State. She began painting in her 20’s.
Ellie is a founding (and current) member of Hillsborough Gallery of Arts, a collectively run gallery of area artists in it’s 11th year. Also a member of the Orange County Artists’ Guild, she opens her studio to the public each fall for the OCAG Open Studio Tour.
Ellie Reinhold’s landscape paintings shift from more realistic to more abstract (and sometimes back again). Currently they are a playful combination of abstract geometric pattern and natural forms, trees in particular. Each piece grows out of experimentation with the raw elements of painting—color, texture, mark, and form. The process is especially propelled along by pushing the color to a satisfying crescendo.
