Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Leslie Colby

The colors in between

“I have always been fascinated by how new colors are created. When I was little I loved the blobs of paint on paper you folded in half, or was one of the few that was truly excited about making advanced color wheels in college.

These days, I explore how colors mix together all by themselves through the use of ice dye (semalar to tie dye) on fabric, eco dyed scarves made using planets that are boiled or steamed which transfers the leaf image to the fabric , and other garments, and painted works, through poured acrylics and resin.” –Leslie Colby

Leslie recently retired from twenty years of teaching art to children. Look for her classes for adults around the Sacramento area.

The 12th Annual Curtis Fest will feature over 75 local artisans under the beautiful canopy of trees at Curtis Park. Artists and makers include painters, sculptors, textile artists, and wood workers. Live music, food trucks, a petting zoo, children’s fairy and a pet refreshment station makes this a great way to finish out the summer.

This free event is open to the public and followed by Music the Park from 6-8pm. Don’t forget a picnic blanket and chairs to sit on while you watch the musicians or eat your food truck tasties from Culinerdy Cruzer, Kados Asian Grill, Masa Guiseria, and Cowtown Creamery.

Thank our sponsors for their support!
