Project Description

Arts In: Katie Deits

. . .

As Florida CraftArt gets ready to host artists from around the country at their annual CraftArt Festival, Executive Director Katie Deits guides Barbara St. Clair through the varied landscape of Fine Craft.

Katie shares her favorite experiences at Florida CraftArt – from exhibits inspired by the use of light and poets writing about work inspired by animals, to visiting Tibetan Monks creating, and erasing, a mandala.

Katie talks about her own artistic journey from aerial photographer to curator, and explains the history of downtown St. Pete’s vibrant Fine Craft center – a place where everyone is welcome to wander in and look at art.

Arts In is produced by Sheila Cowley. Executive Producer, Barbara St. Clair.
