Center for the Arts Evergreen
Bringing the Arts to Evergreen since 1974
What started as a dream by local art enthusiasts in 1974 has become a lasting community gem. Center for the Arts Evergreen provides quality art instruction, exhibitions and activities. Our main gallery displays up to eight shows a year, showcasing local and nationally-acclaimed artists in both curated and juried exhibitions. Our common area features a gift shop with wonderful handmade arts and crafts for any occasion and doubles as a secondary exhibition space. CAE also provides art classes in all media; painting, ceramics, jewelry making, silk dyeing, even language and writing. We host monthly cultural events; concerts, books talks, artist demos, wine tastings, lectures, and much more.
Quality Programming and Events
Center for the Arts Evergreen actively supports the visual and performing arts organizations in our mountain community, including programs for mountain area schools. With generous support from LIV Sotheby's, CAE publishes a monthly arts calendar in the Canyon Courier highlighting the full array of mountain area arts events and performances. Two of the Art Center’s annual highlights are its Summerfest and Winterfest arts and crafts family festivals.
Evergreen art enthusiasts formed the Evergreen Arts Council with a vision to build a mountain community arts center.
In 2003 their dream became a temporary reality with the lease of a 3,000 sf facility in Buchanan Park from the Evergreen Parks and Recreation District.
After years of fundraising, the search for a permanent home began. The board voted to purchase and save the historic Bergen Park Church
Center for the Arts Evergreen begins extensive remodeling of its new home to create suitable classroom and gallery spaces.
