Today's Features

  • One of the secrets to a successful career in art is inspiration. The longevity of a career is determined by an artist’s ability to find daily motivation — something new to arouse the artistic muse and drag him out of hiding. Many artists find this inspiration in new subject matter. Others find it in experimenting with new techniques or styles. For Colorado artist Paul Cunningham, it is a bold mix of both.

  • On the heels of its major renovation and expansion, StageDoor Theatre has renovated its model for summer productions — community theater for all ages. For the first time, adult and child actors alike will be working together to re-create the seamy underbelly of 19th-century London in a rousing rendition of “Oliver!” based on Charles Dickens famous novel “Oliver Twist.”

    PERFORMANCES

  • Summer is here, and Summerfest is upon us. This annual arts festival sponsored by the Center for the Arts Evergreen has become a fixture in many Coloradans’ summer schedules. 2010 should be no different. However, this year’s festival, on July 17 and 18, has many new and different features that set it apart.

  • The Evergreen Jazz Festival has become an institution, not only among the summer musical offerings in our mountain community, but in the national jazz community as well. People travel from all over the country to listen to the diverse lineup of traditional and contemporary jazz ensembles. With the event now in its ninth year, the 2010 Evergreen Jazz Festival should prove to be bigger and better than ever.

  • Last week, we took a look at the performing arts events scheduled for Evergreen’s inaugural Arts Alive! week. This week, we’ll focus on the visual arts events that make up this week-long celebration of arts and culture in our mountain community.

    The week kicks off Friday, July 16, with Evergreen’s traditional Last Friday Gallery Walk taking place two weeks early. The local galleries will be open on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m. offering refreshments and a chance to peruse all of their latest artwork.

  • The arts are alive in Evergreen, and this year 10 consecutive days of events will prominently showcase the town’s performing and visual talents.

    Arts Alive! Evergreen was the spearheaded by Steve Sumner, executive director of the Center for the Arts, and the Evergreen Arts and Cultural Alliance, a group of volunteers who wanted to showcase the arts and culture of our mountain community in a week-long celebration.

  • Evergreen is filled with beauty at every turn — the shimmering waters of Evergreen Lake, blowing wild grasses at Elk Meadow and views of Mount Evans looming in the background. To make our mountain community even more beautiful, Evergreen is brimming with art at every turn. Thanks to Art for the Mountain Community, Evergreen is an ever-changing canvas of public art that invites us to view, engage or simply go about our days in a more beautiful and thoughtful place.

  • A new multimedia co-op art gallery with close ties to the Evergreen art scene opened June 5 on the main street in Georgetown, with 60 mountain-area artists working in virtually every conceivable medium from jewelry to quilts.

    The Colorado Mountain Art Gallery, a nonprofit cooperative founded by the Center for the Arts Evergreen, opened its doors on Saturday, May 29, at 406 Sixth St., across the street from the historic Hotel de Paris.

    The grand opening is Saturday and Sunday, June 26 and 27. There will be refreshments and artists on hand to talk about their work.

  • Evergreen artist Ted Garcia’s latest collection of work is like a painted diary of his life in 2009. Of course, all art is personal for the artist creating it, but in Garcia’s latest show, Plein Air 365, the viewer gets a glimpse at the sunsets, creatures and places that touched Garcia’s soul last year.

    On New Year’s Eve 2008, Garcia stood in a field in Norman, Okla., painting the last sunset of the year. It was at this moment when the idea for his 2009 project, Plein Air 365, struck.
