“As a writer and actor it gives me great pleasure to support the Neo Political Cowgirls in their mission to empower the female perspective and create evocative, important and diverse WORK. I hope the words written in these plays and those spoken in the talkback sessions will resonate and inspire others to speak their truths and come into their own POWER. The world is in a state of immense growth and our hope is that art can help to push the needle on change forward."

Ronald Reed is an American born artist living and working in Sag Harbor, NY. He was born in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, in 1969 and studied Fine Arts at Boise State University and Architecture at the University of Idaho. Painting, sculpture and architecture help make us human. Together they are a trifecta of what makes us, influences us, drives us and can bring us closer to God. Art can lift us up, pull us down, enlighten us and frighten us. This is the same with architecture. It shapes our built world and can impact us without us even noticing. Throughout our history, art and architecture were one and the same, never separated, but an integral part of civilization. My desire is for that to be true once again.
