  • It’s a tale as old as time: Two young people fall in love despite the obstacle of being from different classes.

     

    In this case, it’s the story of “Once on This Island,” a contemporary Broadway musical set in Haiti that is being performed by Evergreen High School theater and music students.

    Theater teacher Fran Arniotes says this is her favorite show.

    “The music is amazing; the story is amazing,” she said. “It’s a remarkable show.”

  • Mark Anthony King wasn't really looking for an opportunity to open an art gallery in Denver, but when he saw the perfect space at 13th Avenue and Bannock Street, he decided to make the leap. That was around Thanksgiving.

    In a few short months, he sold Stoneheart Gallery in Evergreen to Julianne Miller, who took over Jan. 15. King leased the Denver space and is getting it ready for the opening April 6.

    King, 45, had been a presence in Evergreen’s Main Street gallery scene for six years as owner and director of Stoneheart Gallery.

  • Larry Sohrweid’s family history is steeped in the art of quilting. His mother was a member of the Ladies Aid Sewing Circle at their church, making quilts to commemorate the milestones of townspeople’s lives. Sohrweid’s family history as an adult is steeped in the art of theater.

  •  Raised on a farm in Iowa and allowed to wander in the fields and woods on his own as a child, Carmon Slater developed an intense relationship with nature that is on display in his art, his living space and his quilts.

  • Leslie MacPherson proudly announces the engagement of her daughter, Stephanie Winther, to Nathan Hawley.

  • Young Austin and No Difference, a Colorado Springs-based band that stole the show at last year’s Big Chili Cook-off, returned to Evergreen and performed for a growing local fan base on Jan. 27 at the Little Bear.

    The three-man band is making a name for itself as a rockin’ blues phenomenon primarily because of front man and guitarist Austin Young. At 16, Austin has been playing guitar for just four years. The band performs half originals, half covers — of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Muddy Waters.
