A native Houstonian, Reagan Corbett has spent the majority of her life fully immersed in fine art. As a young girl, Corbett spent weekends sketching at The Menil, and participated in a variety of classes at the Glassel Junior School. Throughout her childhood, Corbett developed a fascination for studying how the world is seen through the eyes of others. Corbett continued to study Art History at the University of Paris Sorbonne in 2015 and received her B.A. in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin in 2016. Currently based in Dallas, TX, Corbett's career has taken flight, fully diving into the Texas art community and furthermore deepening her study of art and worldly perspectives.
In the wake of the current feminist and social revolution, Corbett is heavily influenced by social dilemmas and how they affect our society. Both her visual and conceptual focus are rooted in American pop culture; Corbett’s work, while simple at first glance, offers open-ended questions for the viewer to contemplate.
From 2016 to present, Reagan Corbett has served as the founder, executive director and lead artist of The ReagART Collection, an artist-run gallery-like business with the mission to advance art, business, and art education, while gaining an economic understanding of the current state of the market. Throughout her young career, Corbett has been featured in numerous articles including British Vogue, Vogue Mexico, Modern Luxury, Architectural Digest, Paper City and The Houston Chronicle. She has exhibited with numerous galleries, participated in group shows and curated two solo exhibitions, Fleeting Moments in 2017 and Perfect in 2019. Most notably, Corbett has placed her iconic Shipley’s donut painting in Lizzo’s private art collection. Additionally, she was selected by the TEDx Committee to give a TED Talk in May 2018, and was included in The Celebration of Texas Art 2019, curated by Jennie Goldstein, assistant curator of The Whitney Museum of American Art. In 2020, Corbett completed her first large scale mural on behalf of the City of Houston amidst the global pandemic.
