Today's Features

  • Love is indeed a many splendored thing. At Center for the Arts Evergreen’s 11th annual members show, the theme of love will be interpreted in many ways, but above all will demonstrate local artists’ love of their crafts.

    In recent years, CAE has curated a spring member show without a theme — leaving the subject matter of the works up to the artists.

  • Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many ways. Some use the day to honor their loved one; others call it National Single Awareness Day, and bemoan or celebrate their uncoupled status. Whatever your take on love, one thing is certain — love in all forms is fun, and the more you can laugh at yourself, the more fun you’ll have. StageDoor Theatre’s adult company is presenting a hilarious look at love in all forms in the upcoming “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” opening on Jan. 30.

  • There are times in when music can be made even more beautiful by the setting in which it is presented. In the case of the Evergreen Chorale’s latest collaboration with the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra, the concerts’ beautiful settings will make the music all the more joyous and the holiday season all the more festive.

  • Anne Skewes, a P.E.O. chapter FR member, won an original painting by Pem Dunn of a rose in bloom. She won the painting at the chapter’s annual fund-raiser on Dec. 5 at Mount Vernon Country Club.

  • Evergreen resident Claire Roberts and her Bichon, Lulu,  have been invited to compete in the American Kennel Club Agility Invitational in Orlando, Fla., Dec. 13-14. The pair will compete against the swiftest, most agile dogs in the country for the top spot in the 12-inch class. This year, 163 breeds from 41 states and five countries will be represented at the Invitational.

  • The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to kick off your shopping than by supporting our local Evergreen artists? Friday, Dec. 5, marks the 23rd annual Holiday Walk in downtown Evergreen. The walk begins at 5 p.m. with the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Evergreen Lake House to light the community tree. Crowds then walk with Santa down Main Street and take holiday photos, enjoy entertainment, and shop for gifts.

  • It’s quite a hot time in the Borocle, one of downtown Evergreen’s newest art galleries.

    The gallery in the building at the southeast corner of Highway 73/74 also is a workshop for glass blowers Eric Post and Kyle Purcell, who create jewelry pendants, vases, goblets and other art forms. Mandie Smith rounds out the group, creating wire art plus soaps, scrubs and other items.

  • My first and most important job in writing this essay is to invite all of my mountain neighbors to the Interfaith Thanksgiving Service at St. Laurence Episcopal Church in Conifer at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25. You will “dine” upon fine music, readings, prayers and hymn singing. You will have an opportunity to contribute to the Mountain Resource Center and Evergreen Christian Outreach.
