  • Surrounded by artists who moved to the mountains for inspiration, art lovers are treated to beautiful canvases filled with golden aspen and photographs of elk in mist-covered meadows. But when the Evergreen Artists Association’s fall show opened Sept. 26, the concept of “mountain aesthetic” was redefined. The EAA’s fall exhibition is the largest juried show in the recent history of the organization and displays works from 125 artists throughout Colorado.

  • It’s definitely not traditional stained glass, and it’s really not traditional public art, either.

    Instead, it’s a long roller-coaster-like ribbon of steel with attached bicycle wheels that are filled with stained glass. The 16-foot sculpture is the creation of Creative Stained Glass Studio, and it will be on its way to Kennesaw, Ga., to be installed in the atrium at AMLI Residential.

  • You never know what message the sign at the Indian Hills Community Center might offer. But one thing is certain: It draws the attention of motorists on Parmalee Gulch Road.

    Some of the weekly slogans are funny; others are thought-provoking riddles. And a few have created quite a stir.

    “I try to keep something up there that will make people smile,” says Indian Hills resident Vince Rozmiarek, who places the weekly messages on the sign. “I’ve adopted it. It’s really fun.”

  • “This is full of spectacular-ness!” exclaimed Sue Comer as she walked through stands of aspen glowing with fall color last Thursday afternoon.

    Comer had traveled from Loveland to a scenic overlook on Highway 103 where many people were gazing in awe at golden-leaved trees in the bright sunshine. The changing aspen also created bright patterns of color in the distant hills, which leaf-gazers were enjoying along with mature aspen they could walk up to and photograph.

  • Don’t let the title fool you. “Strangers, Lovers and the Winds of Time” by Evergreen author Dale Lovin is far from a romance novel.

    Lovin’s second published work is a gritty, compelling portrait of white supremacists and their devastated victims. Written as a suspense novel interwoven with factual accounts of high-profile incidents, the book contains tales of past and present evil in American society.

  • The annual Hay Days at the Humphrey History Park and Museum offered a little something for everyone on Saturday.

    “The music has been the best part so far,” Evergreen resident Leslie Scully said after sharing a dance with her husband, Steve.

    The event, celebrating its third year, took attendees back to the early 1900s and showed what life in Evergreen was like then. 

  • “Kiss Me Kate” is a musical that belongs on the must-see list of any theater lover. Cole Porter’s most successful musical combines the style of the 1940s Golden Age of Broadway with the wit and tradition of Shakespeare. The Evergreen Chorale’s production of this timeless classic opens Sept. 12 and is the first in a lineup of exciting performances for the 2014-15 Chorale season.

  • Buchanan Rec Center on Sunday morning was inundated with kids swimming, running and biking in a triathlon that was meant to simply be fun.

    Nearly 130 children ages 5 to 13 swam laps in the pool, ran around one of the Bergen ponds, and biked through Bergen Park. No one timed the event, though lots of parents cheered, waved flags, rang cowbells and took pictures.
