Kristian Hartter was born and raised in Colorado and has proudly called Grand Junction home for 16 years. He has dabbled in arts from playing trumpet and bass guitar to mixed media collage work, stone sculpting, photography, blacksmithing, and even performing in community theater. He owned and operated two art galleries in the past few years, writes for local magazines, teaches continuing education classes at Western Colorado Community College, and is active in helping produce arts events for the Grand Valley.
Having helped establish the Bookcliff HomeBrew Club as a 501(c)3 non-profit, Kristian is excited to work with the commission to help other nonprofits and artists to continue to make Grand Junction a place where arts are fostered and will thrive. He believes in community service and the value of arts, both visual and performing, as not just part of society, but as fundamentals.
Kristian is currently owner/operator of Residential Window Service and is returning to Colorado Mesa University to continue his own education.
