The Center for the Arts Evergreen presents around 12 exhibitions in our gallery space every year. Most of our exhibitions are juried group shows, however we sometimes invite artists or art groups to exhibit in our space. CAE hosts an Annual High School Art Show in our gallery every spring. We also have a CAE Members Show every year, which is one of the benefits of becoming a member. We also coordinate two satellite gallery spaces at the Rotary Gallery, which is the lobby at Center/Stage, and Buchanan Rec Center on their main level. The satellite galleries are typically reserved for individual artists to show their artwork.

Three Views: Contemporary Work by Charles Parson, Collin Parson and Devon Parson
June 24, 2016 to August 11, 2016
Opening: Friday June 24, 4-7pm
CAE Gallery
This exhibit celebrates the similarities and differences of two family generations of creativity. With the common bonds of time and place, their separate visual vocabularies speak to the 21st century's experience of living in the Western United States. The distinctions of views of light and shadow, massive scale and delicateness, expansive space and airy atmosphere address the connections of landscapes and passages of time.

The Parsons share the use of geometric forms, usage of everyday architectural materials and techniques, technology, and individual manipulations and mark-making. This exhibit acknowledges essayist Wendell Berry's projection of the passing on of traditions, while embracing each generation's distinctive perceptions and innovations.

The resulting experience of this exhibit is to enrich the viewers' looking and thinking, specifically of the contemporary western experience we all share. The artists aspire to present contemplative moments of the universal themes represented by sunrise and sunsets; earth's surfaces and forms; the West's spaces and the individual's sense of place in it.
Colorful Colorado: The Culture of the Front Range

What makes the beautiful state of Colorado so vibrant? It goes well beyond the gorgeous aesthetics of our natural surroundings. Colorado has a long lineage of vibrant outdoor culture-from the native population, to early miners, to the ski culture of today. What does enjoying Colorful Colorado mean to you?

Carolyn Seymour: A Retrospective
September 23, 2016 to October 27, 2016
Opening: Friday September 23, 4-7pm
CAE Gallery
Join CAE in celebrating a lifetime of viewing the world differently and making art with local artist Carolyn Seymour!

Carolyn Seymour lived, traveled and studied abroad to develop her skills with various techniques in two-dimensional expressions. Her early work was mostly watercolors, oil and tempera mediums. While living in Paris, she experimented with abstract design in printmaking, silk screen, etchings, intaglio, viscosity printing engravings, and portraiture in woodcut. Later, in the Pacific Northwest, she renewed her technique in watercolor and mastered stained-glass design. Throughout her career, she has especially enjoyed creating portraits of the changing stages and growth of her family.

Her landscape method was to sketch with pastel "en plein aire" and then render the sketch in a larger acrylic or watercolor work, creating several works of the same subject in different mediums. She enjoys experimenting and letting serendipity play a large part in the final work, but maintains the basic goal of clear communications with the viewer.

In 2005, when Carolyn was 83, she became visually impaired. Her search for ways to create led to expressions through embossed cards that she produces each Christmas. She currently lives in Evergreen, Colo., but is a frequent visitor to Homer, where her daughter, Susan Oesting, lives and manages her work.
