  • Local artist finds inspiration in maritime lore

    Artists draw their inspiration from a variety of places. Some travel to exotic locations in search of inspiring images. Others choose to stay much closer to home, seeking inspiration in the trees and wildlife of our Colorado town. Brandy Llewellyn, an Evergreen resident and artist, straddles two worlds in her search for artistic inspiration. Brandy and her husband spend winters in Colorado and summers in Sanibel Island, Fla. Having spent many years in U.S. coastal areas as a child, Llewellyn turned her fascination with the sea into a full-fledged love of coastal and maritime art.

  • Evergreen Gallery marks 25th anniversary with sale, silent auction

  • A tradition of hope: Evergreen Fine Art unveils new Evergreen Angel

    In observance of a tradition now 21 years old, on the morning of Sept. 21 a glad company of neighbors assembled at Evergreen Fine Art Gallery on Evergreen Parkway to brew a spot of tea, pour a little bubbly and formally welcome “Michelle” into the heavenly ranks of the Evergreen Angels.

    “She’s beautiful,” said gallery owner and Angel Tea hostess Barb Hadley. “Such graceful wings. She’s very angelic.”

  • Milan’s art infused with spirit of the Southwest

    Spend any time in the Southwest, and you will become enamored with the bold colors that surround and envelop you. A trip to New Mexico overflows with bursts of turquoise, the rich hues of a sun-streaked sky, or the audacious adornments of Native American festival garb. Perhaps it was these rainbows of color that inspired Steve and Jenni Sonnen to surround themselves with Southwestern art when they opened the doors of Mirada Fine Art in Indian Hills. Perhaps it was the work of contemporary painter Pablo Milan.

  • ‘Lucky Stiff’ livens up the stage with laughs

    The term “lucky stiff” seems a bit of an oxymoron. In casual conversation, most people wouldn’t refer to the person who happens to be the dead body as “lucky.” However, in the case of StageDoor Theatre’s upcoming production of “Lucky Stiff,” the Evergreen/Conifer area will have not one, but six, “lucky stiffs” and some lucky charities that will benefit from the celebrity stiffs’ farcical demise.

  • ‘Sound of Music’ brings our hills to life

    2012 is a banner year for the Evergreen Chorale. The 90-person, award-winning choral group has been an “up-the-hill” institution for more than four decades. In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the Chorale is kicking off its season by bringing our “up-the-hill” hills alive with “The Sound of Music.”

  • Full tummies will jiggle at Players’ improv show

    The nature of improvisational comedy means that it’s always fresh and new. After several successful seasons of comedy in the mountains, the Evergreen Players Improv Comedy troupe, EPiC, is working to keep not only its comedy fresh, but the format of its shows as well. For the first time, the talented actors of EPiC will be complemented by local musicians and on-site food service. Audiences will leave after a side-splitting, stomach-busting, ear-tickling good time.

  • Warehouse Gang exhibit a study in gestalt

    Bantering about the term “gestalt” at cocktail parties is a good way to send people running for the hills. The word stems from studies conducted in 1920s Germany, and in its most complex form, gestalt is a form of psychology that is interested in higher-order cognitive process relative to behaviorism. When boiled down to its essence, gestalt theory holds that the whole is more than the sum of its parts.

  • ‘Hair’ pushes boundaries of community theater

    The Evergreen Players have been honored in recent years for their authenticity in acting, directorial innovation and willingness to push the boundaries of contemporary community theater. In 1967 when “Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical” debuted off-Broadway, the show was lauded for similar risk-taking and cultural significance. What better combination than a groundbreaking theater group presenting the musical that broke new ground in musical theater?

  • Teen comedy troupe blends laughs, learning

    Live from Evergreen … it’s Friday night! On June 1, a select group of teen drama students will follow in the footsteps of sketch-comedy legends to create their own version of “Saturday Night Live” at Center/Stage Theatre. This improvisational comedy troupe, known as The Tribe, is now in its fourth summer of performance, and audiences are sure to be delighted by their quick-wit and unique brand of humor that only a Colorado teenager can conjure.

    The Tribe was born from a musical theater summer camp offered by the Evergreen Players.
