Today's Features

  • The Evergreen Artists Association is a local member organization made up of more than 100 artists from throughout the mountain area. Over the last 50 years, the association has worked to provide a forum for artists to gather, learn from one another and share their work. This year, the EAA is working to broaden its reach, and these efforts are reflected in the turnout for its spring show opening on April 23.

  • Ask anyone who lives in Evergreen — or drives through, for that matter — our beloved Elk Meadow Open Space Park can make quite an impression. Arvada-based artist Eldon Warren can attest to this. He was recently commissioned to create an oil painting of the aging barn that sits at the north end of the park. This painting led Warren to create a new series of Elk Meadow paintings, and his series will be on display beginning April 30 at Stoneheart Gallery in Evergreen.

  • “Crazy for You” calls itself a “new Gershwin musical comedy,” and that’s what it is: a musical comedy with songs by George and Ira Gershwin that makes everything old seem new again. How fitting that the high school company of StageDoor Theatre in Aspen Park takes the stage for the first time in the organization’s new facility. Never has Gershwin been so new as when opening night takes place on the planks of a new stage with shining new lights.

    Several years in the making, the new theater will open its doors May 7 for the very first time.

  • A horse is a horse, of course, of course … even when he’s placed smack in the middle of one of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings, or donning the bowler hat made famous in Magritte’s iconic “The Son of Man.” This particular horse is Victoor, the spokeshorse for Harmony HorseWorks in Conifer, and the inspiration for the latest show by artist Barbara Wright, Harmony’s founder.

  • Whistle a few bars of “When You Wish Upon a Star” in the company of others, and watch what happens. Throughout the rest of the day, you’ll notice people in your vicinity humming a few lines and even belting out a few words. That’s the magic of Disney. For more than 80 years, Disney has created a storybook world of characters and songs that transports us to a magical place … a place where dreams really do come true.

  • The American Workers’ Concert Series will return to the Evergreen Elks Lodge on May 21.

    The producer of the event, local percussionist and voice-over artist Keith Riker, said the turnout of 350-plus locals at last year’s show “really gave us the drive to get it going again here for our hometown friends.”

     The performance includes more than a dozen local musicians, including singer-songwriters performing original songs and covers of music that speaks to the struggling American worker.

  • Once upon a time, there was a talented group of 58 singers and dancers, a sprinkle of colorful costumes, and a large helping of Stephen Sondheim’s challenging score. This is the recipe for happily-ever-after when the Colorado Children’s Theatre presents “Into the Woods, Jr.,” opening on May 1.

  • The Evergreen Arts and Cultural Alliance has added several events to the 10-day-long Arts Alive celebration planned for Friday, July 16, through Sunday, July 25.

    Arts Alive Evergreen is a joint effort of Evergreen arts organizations and businesses to promote the area’s artistic, historic and recreational resources.

    The event is being built around the Summerfest Arts Festival July 17 and 18 and the Evergreen Jazz Festival, July 23, 24 and 25, which are two of the area biggest summer attractions.

  • “From California, to the New York Island/From the redwood forest, to the Gulf Stream waters/This land was made for you and me.” The Evergreen Chorale is embracing Woody Guthrie’s sentiments in “This Land is Your Land” in the upcoming concerts “Take Me Home, Songs from Across America.”

    The Chorale will travel coast to coast through song, highlighting the diversity of love for our great country.

  • The Parmalee Elementary School gymnasium was bustling with activity recently as about 30 students and a cadre of parents worked to perfect the school musical, “Oz.”

    Students are the main characters in a musical that is based on “The Wizard of Oz” but has a few twists on the beloved tale and new music, according to Christine Gaudreau, the school’s music teacher and director of the play.
