Ballard Designs Exclusive Artist Rick Reinert

As part of our Exclusive Artist Program, we’re collaborating with a handful of independent artists whose work can only be found in galleries to bring their creative vision to our customers. They create artwork exclusively for us — you won’t find these pieces anywhere else — and you get to enjoy the next best thing to original art at an affordable price.

Charleston artist and gallery owner Rick Reinert‘s distinctive style has captivated us from the moment we laid eyes on his large-scale paintings. Featuring the iconic southern landscape and architecture of his celebrated city, his oil paintings exude warmth and energy, thanks to his signature quick, thick brushstrokes that mimic the great impressionist masters.
