  • Young artists shine in High School Art Show

    Many famous artists will tell you they have been drawing since they could hold a pencil, but their true passion for art was cultivated in a more formal setting — their school art classes. Often, students put brush to canvas or pen to paper for many years but are able to hone their areas of interest or their artistic perspective when under the tutelage of a thought-provoking instructor. Our mountain area schools have some amazing art teachers, and their inspiration will shine through in the work displayed at the upcoming High School Art Show at the Center for the Arts Evergreen.

  • ‘Drowsy Chaperone’ a lively look at theater

    One of the most popular jokes in theater is poking fun at theater itself.

  • Stoneheart to exhibit a unique body of work

    Body acceptance is a huge issue right now in the news — models are dying from anorexia, childhood obesity is on the rise, and fashion designers are revamping their sizing structures to meet the ever-changing figures of clothing consumers. In the midst of all of this, fine artists have always explored the human figure as an object of artistic inspiration. In celebration of human figures of all sizes, Stoneheart Gallery is hosting a show titled “Every Body’s Beautiful: A Collection of All Nude Works,” opening on Feb. 4.

  • Local youths slip into roles in ‘Cinderella, Kids!’

    Being a princess is hard work. Just ask Kate Middleton as she is planning the royal wedding for Prince William. There are glass slippers to be fitted, coaches that keep turning into pumpkins, and royal clocks that strike midnight at inopportune times. But a group of Conifer elementary school students is making being a princess look like a breeze. In StageDoor Theatre’s upcoming production of “Cinderella,” audiences (and Kate Middleton) can see how it’s done.

  • ‘Story Theater’ blends improve, fables

    Directed by Meridith Grundei, the director of the Evergreen Players’ popular EPiC improv comedy troupe, “Story Theater” brings together the magic of a scripted play with the spontaneity of improvisational theater.

  • Juried show at CAE offers a tropical treat

    Walk into the Center for the Arts Evergreen during this windy month of January, and you’ll start to feel warmer inside, thanks in part to the artwork covering the walls. On Jan. 7, the juried show “Paradise: A Tropical Art Show” opened, raising the temperature and humidity inside CAE.

  • Sisters to bring ‘Light’ to Ice House Cafe

    Sometimes the best music comes about with no planning, no forethought, no sheet music …just the passion of the musicians and a moment in time when a partnership is forged that produces magic. Such is the case with the collaboration between two sisters, Maree McRae and Linda Hickman. Both longtime, award-winning musicians in their own right, the women came together in Colorado to produce an acoustic Christmas album of piano, flute and guitar. The sisters will debut their album, “Lights,” at the Ice House Cafe in Evergreen on Friday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m.
