October 2018: Julie Maas’ Art Harvest

Art Harvest: My Creative Cultivation

Pastel and Oil Paintings by Julie Maas

During the month of October, the Paquette Gallery will feature the art of favorite local artist Julie Maas.

From the Artist:

Pure pigment soft pastels sticks offer the immediacy of drawing, and provide vibrant, non-fading colors and rich, soft textures, which is why I enjoy painting with them so much. Pastel is my go-to medium and I also love working in watercolor, collage, and mixed media.

Earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Colorado State University, I strive to continually expand my art skills by studying, practicing, and observing the shapes, shadows, textures, and colors of her surroundings.

My art works are available through www.julie-maas.fineartamerica.com.


Artists’ Opening Reception: Friday October 5, 2018 from 4:00pm-7:00pm in the SteamPlant’s Paquette Gallery.

Come and meet Julie in person to discuss her work and admire this exhibit in person. Complimentary beer and wine from the SteamPlant and free hors d’oeuvres.

Creative Mixer: Thursday October 11, 2018 from 5:30pm-7:00pm in the SteamPlant’s Paquette Gallery.

Join the Salida Council for the Arts and the Salida Creative District on the Plaza for a fine and festive social hour from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Munchies are served, the cash bar is open, live music will be playing, and both Denise and Ben will be there in person to ask about their work.
