  • 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.

  • ‘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.

  • Evergreen artist Slater part of two area exhibits

    MANifestations, opening at the Quilt Museum on Feb. 7 from 5 to 8:30 p.m., is the 12th biennial exhibit of quilts made by men and is a national juried competition. Slater’s piece celebrates the Colorado autumn and features an unusual combination with fused glass.

  • Elks sending Evergreen a Ragtime Valentine

    Mountain-area music mavens will have a lot more to love this Valentine’s Day, as the Evergreen Elks’ long-awaited Ragtime Bash comes roaring back into town in a backbeat blaze of syncopated savoir faire.

  • Chorale bringing holiday concert home to Evergreen

    The Evergreen Chorale enriches our lives each holiday season with music and wonder. Last year audiences were treated to performances of Handel’s “Messiah.” This year, the Chorale is changing things up with a holiday performance that’s a little less serious and, one might say, a little more brassy. This year the Chorale has forged a collaboration with Rocky Mountain BrassWorks to present “A Holiday Fantasy,” which opens Dec. 13.
