Doug Reina is a 2014 Pollock-Krasner grant recipient whose studio is based in Setauket, New York.
Reina is a full-time artist who has creates work en plein air and in his studio of the landscapes and people that are part of his life.
Reina's artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums primarily here on Long Island, with some exposure in New York City, Connecticut and Florida as well.
Although he studied art at Buffalo State College, Reina's education really began at home; his father is a sculptor and was chairman of the Art department at Nassau Community College, and his mother ran an art gallery in Cold Spring Harbor, New York.
Another big influence in Reina’s approach to making art is his friend and mentor, Long Island abstract painter Stan Brodsky, who he has studied with for several years.
