  • Evergreen seeking state designation as arts district

    Evergreen has been given the go-ahead to apply to become part of a two-year program that will result in the designation of “creative district” by a state funding agency.

    If Evergreen is accepted, a local committee with representatives from all areas of the arts will be given $5,000 in seed money by the state to market and advertise Evergreen for the next two years as a comprehensive arts area, according to Steve Sumner, executive director of Center for the Arts Evergreen.

  • Poignance, laughs live in ‘Apartment 3A’

    A New York theater critic once commented that “Apartment 3A,” the latest production by the Evergreen Players, refused to be pigeonholed — it is part comedy, part drama, and all heart. This description not only works for “Apartment 3A,” but for the Evergreen Players as well. The Players’ 2014 season offers a diverse mix of shows, including the musical “Annie,” comedic performances by the EPiC improvisation group, and Jeff Daniels’ play “Apartment 3A,” which opens Friday.

  • High school artists honored at CAE exhibit

    The Center for the Arts Evergreen was pleased to unveil the work of high school artists from throughout our mountain community at the opening reception of the annual High School Art Show on Sunday, March 9. The new show features outstanding artworks from four area high schools — Evergreen, Conifer, Clear Creek and Platte Canyon. 

  • EHS troupe set to raise the roof with ‘Fiddler’

    “Fiddler on the Roof,” which opened on Broadway in 1964, had the first musical theater run in history to surpass 3,000 performances. For many years, the show was a school- and community-theater staple, and theater critics claim that due to the show’s global popularity, there are at least 10 simultaneous productions of “Fiddler on the Roof” in performance somewhere in the world. All we need is one production in our mountain community, and Evergreen High School’s interpretation of the time-honored classic should fit the bill.

  • School art show opens Friday at Shadow Mountain Gallery

    The artistic creations of area elementary school students will be on display at Shadow Mountain Gallery beginning Friday.

    Most of the works are two-dimensional, said Don Fairchild, coordinator for the 20th annual school art show at the gallery.

    Teachers at each of the participating schools have selected six to eight art pieces created by students in kindergarten through sixth grade.

  • EAA spring show is all wet — and that’s a good thing

    Water has been our constant companion in Evergreen this year. From the downtown flooding in September to a big snow season this winter, we have been surrounded by water in all its forms. The Evergreen Artists Association’s spring show, “Water,” seems especially fitting. The EAA will put forth its best artwork depicting water in every form — ice, mist, steam, clouds, dew, fog, crystals and snow.

  • Evergreen Fine Art to host high-flying exhibit

    Birds have always been a source of inspiration for artists. The bald eagle has appeared on all official seals of the United States, as well as on most coinage, paper money, and on many U.S. stamps. Artist John James Audubon became famous for his collection of bird paintings. There is something about these high-flying creatures that encourages great art.

  • Home, sweet Little Bear

    For Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder John McEuen, his sold-out gig at the Little Bear on Sunday night was a homecoming — from a musician’s and a wanderer’s perspective.

  • ‘Forever Plaid’ takes us back to boy-band era

    If you tuned in for the Super Bowl halftime show, you got an eyeful of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The Chili Peppers, an iconic male quartet from the 1990s and 2000s, are famous for their frenetic on-stage persona and a funk-rock vibe. True fans of the band, however, appreciate their tight vocal harmonies.
