Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Oracle Oak By Hati Meier-King

In her life-long practice, Hati Meier-King has explored art and creativity through different materials and mediums. Self-taught, Meier-King has always naturally gravitated toward art for its centering and meditative qualities. She does not limit herself, finding inspiration everywhere and the various mediums fascinating.

Her work – from her lifelike realism in colored pencil, to her precision in pen & ink, the vibrancy of her paintings, and the 3D real-life appearance of her painted fish suspended in resin – makes it difficult to pin her with a specific style.

Her greatest artistic influences are the various female artists and artisans throughout her family tree and the community of artists and troubadours she was raised in. As such, Meier-King falls outside the confines of any particular artistic movement or period, but she remains a captivating artist who never ceases to intrigue.

The 13th Annual Curtis Fest will feature over 80 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 kids Zone 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 in the Park. Come to our free event to support local artists, bring a picnic blanket and chairs to sit on while you watch the musicians or eat your food truck tasties from Kados Asian GrillMasa Giuseria, or Cowtown Creamery.

A big thanks to our sponsors Grateful DogSteffan Brown RealtyRenewal by AndersenSt. Hope Public Schools, and Farm Fresh to You for helping to make the fair possible.
