Voyage Visionaries “June is for the Roses” Art Show

Thursday, June 14 at 5 PM – 8 PM

Kristine Reiner is the next artist showcasing in Voyage’s gallery at Dawley Farms. Music will be performed by Ben Gertner from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.

Reiner is a graphic designer and a mixed media artist that graduated from USF in 2016. Reiner creates abstract art by painting with roses and feels that it’s a magical thing to have someone see a different image in her work than what she originally imagined.

Reiner’s works are based on her own life experiences, she finds that her emotions are really what guide her subject matter. When creating, Reiner tends to use whatever is available but rarely paint brushes. Instead, most of her works are created using roses. From start to finish Reiner will use the different parts of the rose to achieve a unique movement that you can’t get with a brush.
