    The Evergreen Artists Association promotes the visual arts in our mountain community with art shows, member activities, scholarships, workshops, programs and the annual Evergreen Fine Arts Festival.

  • Upcoming performance at Little Bear is homecoming, says musician

    Sitting at Moe’s Original Bar B Que in downtown Denver, Mark Bell talks about the beginning of his musical career.

     

    “One day I just picked up the harp, and it came to me,” he said.

    Bell remembers the actual day: On June 2, 1973, he started playing harmonica, and has been making music ever since with other performers.

    “I’ve been around musicians all my life,” he said.

  • ‘Willy Wonka Kids’ a sweet treat for the family

    With so many things packed onto our calendars, it’s often hard to find quality time with the entire family. Why not bring the kids to StageDoor Theatre’s latest production of “Willy Wonka Kids”? Audiences will join StageDoor’s elementary and pre-kindergarten companies as they tell Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the world-famous candy man, Willy Wonka, and his colorful compatriots of both the human, animal and Oompa-Loompa variety.

  • Evergreen Chorale planning a ‘Fiesta!’

    Christine Gaudreau, the artistic director of the Evergreen Chorale, loves collaboration — bringing together the artistic elements of music, voice and dance to create a lively, almost theatrical, experience. The Evergreen Chorale’s most recent collaboration meets all of these artistic challenges. The Chorale’s last concert of its 40th-anniversary season is called “Fiesta!”; the Chorale will perform with the premier Hispanic dance company, Fiesta Colorado, in a concert that will sparkle with dance and song from Central and South America.

  • StageDoor’s ‘Legally Blonde’ adds tunes to laughter

    “Legally Blonde” is a musical based on the 2001 movie starring actress Reese Witherspoon. The story is a lighthearted, funny tale of Elle Woods, who enrolls in law school to win back her ex-boyfriend, Warner. “Legally Blonde” opened at StageDoor Theatre on April 13 to rave reviews. The show, being produced by StageDoor’s high school company, runs through May 4.

  • ‘101 Dalmations’ the perfect training ground for young-pup performers

    Spring is the season for new life. And what better way to celebrate the growing animal kingdom than with a pack of puppies — 101 puppies, to be exact. Disney’s “101 Dalmatians”is a heartwarming tale of human kindness filled with musical pizzazz, thanks to young actors from the Prelude to the Evergreen Children’s Chorale.

    The Prelude is a mountain community choir for students in second, third and fourth grades. This year, Prelude has 23 young performers who will participate in “101 Dalmatians.”

  • Enter Callie’s ‘art world’

    When she was a young girl, Callie Graham of Bailey escaped the frustrations associated with dyslexia by entering her “art world.”

    Now, at age 15, art is the dominant theme in her world — and the arena where she excels.

    Callie’s drawings are on display in “The Dreams Within Us,” an exhibit at Shadow Mountain Gallery in Evergreen. The 15-year-old’s work — pencil drawings primarily of characters from “Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” — will be on exhibit until April 21.
