Local artist, Patricia Gaspar, has been most generous with her talents as it relates to the Hoy-Scott Watershed Society.
Our salmon hatchery facility in Coquitlam boasts several pieces and installations created by Ms. Gaspar in a variety of mediums, most of which are permanent fixtures, all enjoyed by the community still to this day.
Herartwork was created between 2009 and 2013 and includes:
- A pastel of the hatchery building, which is a prominent landmark along Hoy Trail Linear Park
- A large paper mache coho salmon which hangs above our capilano trough which houses baby salmon during the winter/spring
- The walls and bench in our capilano trough room also feature her artwork depicting the salmon throughout its life cycle in a mural format
- And most prominent are the metal salmon pieces that adorn the open-air area above the rearing pond, where our young salmon live from summer through to spring.
The Hoy-Scott Watershed Society executive would highly recommend Patricia Gaspar for any art projects, in particular those that benefit the community. Visit the artist's website HERE.
