Birt's Artist Reception

Vanguard member, Kristi Herring, will be honored with a reception displaying her work on Thursday, January 12th from 5:00-7:00 PM. This reception will be held at Birt's Bistro and Bookstore, 16752 N. Greasewood St; Surprise, AZ. Music will be provided by Kristi's son, Mark Ward, on guitar.

Kristi discovered watercolor painting when she retired from the working world 15 years ago. She loves portraits and enjoys capturing both the likeness and the personality of her subjects. Her current series, "At the Drop of a Hat", features portraits of people wearing their favorite chapeaux.

Earlier works in her diverse portfolio included a collection of paintings that depicted the proud culture of Native Americans, a series of elegant florals and whimsical pictures such as her "Fat Chicks" series. Recent commissioned works include illustrating several children's books.

Kristi is a member of the prestigious Vanguard Artists Group and has also exhibited at Benevilla's Chez Nous Center and Cafe.
