Today and This Weekend at the SteamPlant

February 28, 2015
Salida Bridal Show

Today’s Bridal Open House–the Un-Bridal Show is unwinding.  We had a great turn out!  And thank you to all of our vendors who mingled with the guests today in the Un-Bridal Show.  This is the first time Heart of the Rockies Wedding Association and its members have tried out the Un-Bridal show–the main idea behind it, it mimicks a usual wedding ceremony.  We had a bride and groom who walked around the event doning Love’s Bridal Boutique’s wedding dress and tuxedo.  Local photographers:  Autumn Twilight, Paper Posey, Yellow Feather and Phreckles Photography were shooting throughout the entire event.  River’s Edge Catering provided skewers of salami, articoke hearts, marainated mozzerella cheese as well as pulled pork sandwiches.  Bash Cocktail Catering was providing free tastings of drinks mixed from local distilleries and Ranch Verde and He Loves me Flowers provided flowers for the guest tables.  We had many other local vendors:  Lorri with Mary Kay, Petal & Flour, Settings Event Rental, Ericka with Ululani Event Design, Devon with Violet’s Chairs, Abi from Hutchinson Ranch and of course Beatrice (and occasonially I poked my head in) from the SteamPlant Event Center.  Here are a few pics from the event.

Salida Bridal Show

Phreckles Photography, Cailey McDermott spent her day at the SteamPlant for the Un-Bridal Show. I love this picture of her!

It was a busy day at the SteamPlant Event Center with the Indie Spirit Film Fest featuring 10 independent films in our Theater and Annex with titles: Sitting Bulls Voice, Low & Clear, Agnus Dei, and many more.  The facility was bursting at the seams.

And tomorrow, we will have The Salida Guitar Expo and Evening Performances.  This is a new event for the SteamPlant.  From 12-5pm there will be a free Expo in our Annex Building (Conference Center), bringing your own guitar is encouraged.  Once the Expo has ended there will be live music in our Paquette Gallery, Dave Tipton playing the Chapman Stick, and then in the Theater:

6-7pm – SteamPlant Theater Evolution of the Guitar – An informative discussion with live demonstrations on how the guitar has evolved from classical to electric. Musicians include Ed Lambert, Scott Adams, John Lusk, Bruce Hayes, Harper Powell, Chris Nasca and Jaquie Gipson. 

7:30-8:30pm – SteamPlant Theater Concert with Jaquie Gipson Jaquie plays both 6- and 12-string guitars and is an extraordinary fingerstyle guitarist. Her style incorporates melodic two-hand tapping and percussion techniques into more-or-less traditional fingerstyle playing.

The Salida Guitar Expo is not to be missed and hopefully an annual event
