Reggie Carde

Reggie Carde obtained a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Painting from UNC-Greensboro. Reggie’s paintings

are influenced by expressionist and folk artists, which balance realism and abstract images by emphasizing bright colors and bold lines with positive and negative space. ​

 

​Reggie incorporates layering, glazing, and dry brush techniques using acrylic paint within his art.  Reggie also works with pen and ink and enjoys drawing old houses, scenic byways, and landscapes.  Reggie’s quirky 3-D wooden fish are popular with local collectors. ​

 

​Reggie is a participant in Public Art Projects around the Sanford, NC area, recently completing a whimsical street piano. Reggie also creates wall murals, which are showcased in the children’s section of the Broadway Library and in the reading area of Books at a Steal,

a local bookseller.

 

Reggie is a Member of the Sanford Brush and Palette Club and has won numerous awards during the annual art show and was named Artist of the Year in 2018. Reggie’s greatest accomplishment is that of teaching and developing his mother’s skills as a folk-art painter.
