Anfisa Brewer could hardly contain her excitement Friday as Joe Herring Jr. revealed her graphic design work one by one in the picture windows at Herring Printing on Water Street.
The 2022 Schreiner University graduate, Brewer is one of the latest artists to have their work shared at the print shop. The effort is part of the Big Seed Arts, a movement shepherded by artist Kristen LaRue and Pint and Plow owner Jeremy Walther.
"I'm a little overwhelmed but very proud," Brewer said.
Brewer is a printmaker, meaning each of her colorful graphic designs was carefully blocked, inked and pulled. She needed to pull the color many times to get the right shade to get an orange gradient.
The impromptu galleries were Herring's idea because he's been told by the city of Kerrville that thousands of motorists pass by his Water Street business. If they're stopped at Water and Sidney Baker streets, there is a good chance they will be backed up long enough to see the six prints hanging from the windows.
