My fine art paintings aremy chosen language to use a pictorial narration without the need for endless written explanations about what something means. I often use magical realism to express specific symbols that strive to capture cultural experiences and tender memories of my childhood. My studying at The Academy of the Arts was the beginning of my career. After learning the materials and techniques taught at the school, I began to draw on my own views of life and culture. I learned to thrive on the joy of mixing symbols or metaphors in my paintings that could convey double meanings to poems and dreams in my art. My culture and my Cuban roots are the essence of my soul that provides me with an endless supply of concepts, ideas, emotions, values, and beliefs that I wish to express. This exhibition titled, Anecdotes from a Diary, consists of a collection of works in which I have chosen to share with the viewer some special aspects my culture and heritage.

Upon graduating from the school of art (Instructores de art) in Cuba and pursing a professional career as an artist and art educator, it became very difficult to acquire fine art supplies such as oil, acrylics, watercolors, and pastels. To compensate for the lack of supplies I began to experiment with the qualities of Cuban Espresso Coffee as a medium of expression of works on paper.  

The art works in this collection reflect daily activities of individuals and families still living in Cuba, pursuing the challenges and pleasures of everyday life with a special emphasis on rural and agrarian communities.

The City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs presents The Art of Pinar del Rio, an exhibition of works by more than a dozen Cuban artists curated by local artist Reynier Llanes. As a student in Cuba, Llanes could not look online or search out museums to find the works of European masters for inspiration. Instead, he found it in the art around him – that of his fellow students and instructors. He began collecting and trading works with his cohort while still in school. When he left for the US in 2007, he brought what works he had with him. Llanes has continued to collect contemporary art from outside the Cuban capital of Havana, and has amassed a collection of works by his contemporaries. These artists all have different styles of painting, but their artwork has a common message of harmony, unity, family and reflections of today’s Cuban society. In addition to works by Reynier Llanes, exhibited artists will include Ulises Bretaña, Javier Ampudia, Livan Hernandez, Lores Arquimides, Yaciel Marinez, Danis Ozuna, Juan M. Suarez, Pedro Pablo Oliva, Martha Camacho, Juan C. Morales, and others. 

Saturday, November 16th - Sunday, December, 29th 2013
The opening reception is from 5pm until 7pm 
 Reynier Llanes will host a lecture at the gallery on Saturday, December 7 at 3pm. The exhibition, opening reception, and lecture are all free and open to the public.

Art Museum, Myrtle Beach, SC
I had the privilege of growing up in a culturally rich environment on the island of Cuba, where words rhyme in verses and you toast with coffee and rum. Cuban culture has learned to be creative in the wake of economic hardships, innovating and re-inventing itself with tools, objects, and designs that influence life and all forms of artistic expression.

Art is exciting - full of passion and genuine ideas; every artist has strength in his voice as a creator. My classmates and I were encouraged to challenge each other in the most positive way, such that our individual artistic voices could flourish in our work. For these reasons and many more, I am committed to the discipline of collecting art that reflects my values and tastes, with a special interest on the contemporary art and artists of Pinar del Rio, my home town.

​The reception, open to the public, will feature gallery talks by Llanes beginning at 6:00. The reception is Free for Museum members and $10 for non members. Both exhibits run through April 23.

Opening Reception May 29th from 6:30 - 9:00

Llanes’ painting process is similar to watercolor. He prepares his palette by brewing the espresso coffee. He then formulates his own alchemy with various shades of brown tones. The creation process takes various steps to achieve the final stage of the painting. The artist begins with the drawing of the composition and applying the first brush strokes with a very translucent coffee wash and from this point he continues to enhance the artwork with multiple layers of the beverage. Llanes considers his work as an illustrated poem, using metaphors in his compositions to create stories, allegories, and themes. His art exhibitions, educational presentations, and hands on workshop skills have been enthusiastically received at the Collier County Museums in Naples, Florida, the Franklin G Burroughs – Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and the Charleston Alliance for the Arts in Charleston, South Carolina.

June 10 - September 24, 2017

Dorothy Jenkins Gallery
The first of many forthcoming exhibitions showcasing the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College’s latest acquisitions, The Figure in American Art offers but a mere introduction to the Museum’s newest permanent collection works. This inaugural exhibition of the alliance between the Polk Museum and Florida Southern highlights one of the principal collecting initiatives fostered by the partnership: to develop a collecting focus that specifically addresses the “figure” as a subject unto its own in American painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture.

The human form - rendered realistically, abstractly, or even metaphorically - has been the central element that has connected art across time, and, as The Figure in American Art strives to illustrate, the theme presents an endless font for artistic and viewer consideration. Accordingly, this new collecting focus strives to elevate the Museum, making it and Lakeland, a go-to source for American art. This summer, visitors to The Figure in American Art will get a glimpse at a growing collection whose uniqueness celebrates not only the new alliance between the Polk Museum and Florida Southern College, but also the unique strengths of the community at large.

Perspectives on American Figuration from the Permanent Collection

Faces in the Crowd is the second in a series of exhibitions showcasing the Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College’s latest acquisitions of figurative American art. Approaching the concept of the human figure and its representation in art broadly, this exhibition continues to highlight the new principal collecting focus of the Museum’s permanent collection, one that addresses American figurative art as a subject unto its own in painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. 

From afar, the notion of a room — or a collection — full of works all on the theme of American figuration may seem limiting; it is exhibitions like Faces in the Crowd, however, that aim to prove otherwise. The title Faces in the Crowd hints at the diverse possibilities of the theme. In one sense, Faces in the Crowd alludes to both the potential anonymity of a given figure in American art but also at the potential specificity of a particular figure in American art. Just as we are all faces in the crowd of humanity, so too are the figures and artists who appear in this exhibition.

Last year we had our first solo exhibition for Reynier Llanes and he is back again this year to be the finale for our 55th Season. Currently the artist in residence at Northwestern State University of Louisiana, this young Cuban- American artist has been busy with museums shows and creating new works since last April. His recent exhibitions include “Faces in the Crowd” group exhibition at the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida from September to December 2017; “Visual Therapy: the effects of art as manifestation on artist and Viewer” group exhibition at the Frank, Penniman Pines, Florida; “The Figure in American Art: Florida Southern College’s New Art Museum Collection.” June to September 2017; and “Marble Trace” solo exhibition at Northwestern State University of Louisiana in May 2017.

 Of his latest works Reynier says: “Before I began painting in my new studio I was studying night scenes, they are intricate and difficult to capture it in paintings - I took the challenge of being seduced by moonlight.”
