Born in New York City in 1957, Ira Reines has been interested in art since childhood. He was hired at age 19 by the Medallic Art Company of Danbury, Connecticut to sculpt medallions and there he learned and honed advanced plaster-working skills. In 1980, the iconic Art Deco artist Romain de Tirtoff, known as Erté, hired the young artist to translate his celebrated couture designs, drawings and paintings into sculpture. Their collaboration, which lasted 11 years until Erté’s death, produced 70 bronzes.

Since that time, Reines has explored in his figurative sculpture the relationship between humans and the cosmos, order and chaos, and the sublime beauty of the divine. His work is included in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, England, the Shanghai Duolon Museum of Modern Art, Shanghai, China, and the Four Arts Botanical Garden in Palm Beach, Florida. A private collection of his recent work, including a series entitled The Five Elements, will be on exhibition from July 29 – October 1 in the Museum’s Old Gallery.
