Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Aimee Alexander of Artisticle

I need more dots!

At 3 months old Aimee Alexander traced the pattern of her grandmother’s shirt with her tiny finger.  At 12 she discovered the magical world of art and design while visiting a friend’s graduation at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco. This was the moment she knew she’d grow up to be a designer.  In 2009 she launched her own art business, Artisticle.  She draws all her designs using a ruler, a circle template, a handful of markers, and an insane number of dots.  She has over 250 completed pieces of work.  You can purchase her work as an original, canvas reproduction, signed print, greeting card, or necklace.

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.
