TIKI., March 1,1976 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE IS THEE By DIANE RAY The 13th Annual Art Mart sponsored by the American Association of University Women will be held April 30, May 1 and 2, at the Greeley National Bank. Because "if the overwhelming number of entries last year with the tries last year with the essentially unjuried format, this limited to four and there is a possibility that only one will be displayed from each artist. The number from each artist included will be dependent on the quality, of course, but may also be affected by the total number of entries. This new approach has generated some controvery. Many area artists feel that Greeley is ready for a straight juried show, comparable to the Gilpin County Show, the Own Your Own in Pueblo, and the Annual Christmas Show at the Jewish Community Center in Denver where the jury can reject all of one person's entries if he feels they are not of professional caliber. Ideally, this is the best way to do it, insuring a quality selection made by competent authorities. However, experience with 'THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN' AUNIVKSAlnCTUm Bp juried shows in general hai shown that we cannot always trust jurors to pick the best works. Personal biases always enter in no matter how careful they try to be and it usually Is the traditional work, the type of thing that the people enjoy most, which suffers. The AAUW sponsors are attempting to avoid this and want to provide a good quality selection of all types, therefore are going to try this new procedure this year. If it is going to be successful, the artists will have to help, 90 to make sure that this is a very good, professional level show, please enter your very best new things, not the stuff you have had around the house for the last five years because you have been unable to unload it. If you know that your work i» not really professional quality, do not embarrass yourself by putting it in. Most importantly of all, remember the importance of excellent presentation. Please do not have anything there with shaggy, crooked, spotted mats, dirty glass and frames with corners that don't meet. Have the work done professionally unless you know that you are an expert. It is well worth the financial investment. Many times a double mat with beveled edges combined with a simple tasteful frame can made an ordinary work quite spectacular. This year there will be a great effort to recruit work from outlying areas so that Greeley patrons will have more diverse selection. Jurors will be Barbara Marquardt, who owns the Cauldron Gallery in Fort Collins, runs the Cauldron Art School and also is a fine painter, and Mark Zamantakls, a potter and teacher in the Jefferson County School system. All media is acceptable and all entries must be for sale. Entries are due Monday, April 26, 1-4 p.m. at the North entrance of the Grcclcy National Bank. In order to be Included in the program, it Is requested that entrants pre-register by mail before April 16. Entry blanks and additional information may be obtained from Mrs. Robert Tolnton, 1870 25th Ave., 353-2433, or Mrs. Robert Ward, 26S5 65th Ave., 352-6298. Beaffes in America? LONDON (AP) -- The Beatles are getting together again for a concert in America, a gossip columnist for the Daily Mirror said today. Paul Callan quoted the father of one of the members of the group as saying the Beatles had decided definitely to get together again for a concert in the United States. Callan wrote in the mass-circulation Mirror that 66-year-old Harold Harrison, father of former Beatle George Harrison told him, "George has relented, after some hesitation, and the boys have all agreed to do the show in the United States and possibly stay togelher for other shows." George, John I*nnon, Paul McCartney and Kingo Starr broke up as a group in 1971 after selling more than 100 million records. "George has been in America for a month now with his recording company and has told me that he and the other lads will be getting together for a show," his father was quoted as saying. CHUCKWAGON'S "RUSTLERS" -- A highlight of the success of the Chuckwagon Dinner Playhouse is the singing- dancing group of talented young people called "The Rustlers." They perform their pre-show routine at each production and serve as waiters and waitresses off stage. From the left, Jeannic Kammerer, Randy Adamson.

(Tribune photo by Jim Briggs) 1975 was 'tremendous growth year' for Chuckwagon Dinner Playhouse By JIM BRIGGS Tribune Stall Writer The growth of one of Greeley's youngest business ventures appears to be keeping pace with the progress of the community. The Chuckwagon Dinner Playhouse,204E. 18th St., which is owned and operated by a Greeley-based Colorado corporation, Three S. Inc., continues to offer area residents e x p a n d e d o p p o r t u n i t y for leisure time pleasure. Lynn Settje and Joe E. Smith, active partners in the business, view 1975 as "a tremendous growth year" for their enterprise. It all began in the spring of 1973, when negotiations were made with Ernie Scott of EVERYWEDNESDAY CAFETERIA Lasagna or Spaghetti Meat Balls Served with hot garlic bread, and tossed salad with your choice of dressing.

Dinner-theater definitely was on the rise as a popular form of entertainment across the nation. Could it survive in Greeley, Colorado? Settje, Smith and associates were convinced it could and were successful in convincing other area businessmen of their optimism. The result was the opening of the Chuckwagon Dinner Playhouse on July 20, 1973. The playhouse facilities formerly housed the Weld County Livestock Sales Commission and took some ingenious renovation to transform it into a dinner-theater. However, the results were successful. Dinner-theater has been well-received in this area. From its first production of "Hello, Dolly!" to the current musical opening this week, "The Music Man," the Chuck- wagon operation has staged 24 productions with some of the most popular being "Oklahoma!" "Fiddler On the Roof," "Cactus Flower," "My Fair Lady," "I Do, 1 Do! "and "Annie Get Your Gun," among others. During the summer of 1975, the playhouse expanded its horizons considerably when Settje and Smith opened a s u m m e r d i n n e r - t h e a t e r operation at the Crags Lodge in Estes Park. Proving a very successful venture, this summer excursion brought national attention to the area as vacationers from all over the country experienced dinner and show at the playhouse in the mountains. Plans are currently under way to return to Estes Park this summer with "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" scheduled to open June 25, 1976. One of the highlights of the year for this young corporation was the opening in December of The Apple Butter Inn, a new country-style restaurant housed in the building on East 18th Street. Featuring home cooking, freshly baked breads, family-style serving and an early American atmosphere, the Apple Butter Inn has created a new concept in dining in the Greeley area. The rapid expansion of this business has not only offered additional entertainment opportunities, but has also created new employment outlets. The corporation employs about 36 individuals with that number increasing with the cast size of- the production the playhouse is performing. Plans during this bicentennial year for the Chuck- wagon operation include such popular American musicals as "George M" and "1776." Expansion of kitchen facilities also is one of the major projects planned for this year. According to Smith, 'The playhouse is meeting a need in Northern Colorado for a unique form of entertainment for people of all ages. "Our intent is to continue to meet this need which imvolves making changes and growth to fullflll this goal. As in any young business, growing pains can be very painful, but as we all know they are a necessary TXE LOUNGE AND SUPPER CLUB proudly presents AMERICAN HERITAGE Thru March 14 TUESDAY-SATURDAY · 8:30 to 1:30 SUNDAY · 7:00 to 11:30 Complete Dinners Served Until 10:00 SUNDAYS AND HOLIDAYS UNTIL 9:00 For RiMrvrtlMS C«lljM-40Mor3M-4147 _____ Enjoy An Evening Out...
