Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Exlibris Co

Her work tells stories about stories.


“I spend a lot of time turning the pages of books to create new stories with them. After working in libraries for years and accumulating works for my library at home, my appreciation of books expanded. A book’s utility is also grounded in its beauty. The hues of older book pages, the colorful illustrations of children’s books, the linen-like quality of some publisher’s paper, I love them all. With love, I take books off shelves and make them the centerpiece of a room.”

About Curtis Fest

Curtis Fest returns to William Curtis Park on Sunday, Aug. 27. More than 60 artisans are expected to show their work at the 11th annual event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the north end of the park under the beautiful tree canopy. Curtis Fest has become a Sacramento favorite, and many premier artists have joined the lineup this year.

This free, public event includes food from award winning chef Keith Breedlove of the Culinerdy Cruzer food truck along with delicious street tacos from the Turnt Up food truck. John Merriman, Dianna and the Cherry Kings and the Ranell Carpenter Band will perform.

An expanded petting zoo returns this year as well as the climbing station, and the children’s fairy. Curtis Fest will be followed by Music in the Park from 6-8 p.m.
