Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Sue Torngren

Those nice little succulents in the yard are now memorialized larger than life

“As a child, my brother would take art lessons and I would sit in the galleries of the Crocker Art Museum during his classes. It was an awe inspiring place for a five year old.  I loved the color and majesty of the museum. Always a favorite subject in school, I received my degree in fine art from the University of California, Davis. I also studied at Sacramento City College and U C San Diego.

I have made art throughout the years and shown in various galleries in California and Nevada. I now have a renewed energy and focus and enjoy every hour spent painting.”

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.
