Please join us for an artist talk by watercolorist Chris Krupinski on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from Noon – 4:00 pm. Chris is the juror for the 72nd Michigan Water Color Exhibition and will be presenting the awards during the public reception starting immediately after her talk.

Art is a key element in Chris Krupinski’s life. She has been drawing and painting all of her life, but discovered watercolors in the mid-1980s and has had a passion for the medium ever since. The training she received pursuing art education and graphic design degrees honed her technical abilities. But, more importantly, it is the discipline of painting everyday that has led to her success.

Chris is a Dolphin Fellow of the American Watercolor Society, signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain Watercolor Society, TWSA (Master Status), Watercolor West-Master, and Allied Artists, to name a few. Chris earned the rst Platinum Member status in the Alabama Watercolor Society. She is the recipient of over 200 national and regional awards including the top award in the 2013, 2015, and 2018 Adiron- dacks Exhibition of American Watercolors, first in Watercolor West 2016, first in Alabama Watercolor Society 2018 and a medallion award winner in the 2013 and 2015 American Watercolor Society Exhibition. Chris was featured on both the cover and a feature article in the October 2014 issue of The Artists Magazine. Most recently Chris was featured with a step-by-step demonstration in the Art of Watercolour magazine (30th edition).
