About the SteamPlant Event Center


The SteamPlant Event Center, located in the heart of scenic Salida, Colorado, hosts over 500 events each year, from private weddings to conferences, community meetings, concerts, conventions, and more. Originally built in 1887 to house the Salida Edison Electric Light Company, the historic building was purchased exactly a century later by the City of Salida. The SteamPlant is a vibrant, thriving part of our community that includes a theater venue, outdoor sculpture garden, art galleries, riverside plaza, conference rooms, and a spacious ballroom.

Paquette Gallery Exhibition


Artist Exhibit through July 31

Open to the Public 

About the exhibit from the artist

This show is a collection of my watercolors and acrylics. I enjoy painting using both mediums because each one holds its own unique characteristics. All of my work is from places I have been.  I like to carry a sketchbook with me and make small drawings or I take a picture and use that as a reference.  I love to travel where I hike and explore.  I believe this is also part of the process of painting for me. View the entire exhibit online as well at Paquette Gallery Arts.
