In addition to being an artist and metalsmith, Charles H. Reinike III is also the owner of Reinike Gallery which was started by his two artist parents in 1930. Throughout his long career he has created murals in homes, churches, synagogues, restaurants and businesses. But his primary focus has always been painting. His paintings are in corporate and private collections throughout the United States and in a number of countries abroad.

HIs work is most often representational such as the lyrical Fields paintings, the coastal Overlooked subjects and the architectural and allegorical Arches.  His abstract Essence paintings still have subtle elements of representation but the subliminal content is the driving force.
