Juror Gene Youngman selected original artworks by more than 50
artists from 230 entries for the Depot Art Center and Gallery’s
27th All Colorado Juried Art Exhibit, a Western Welcome Week
tradition at the gallery housed in a quaint red Santa Fe Depot at
2069 W. Powers Ave. in Littleton. Entries were open to any Colorado
Dating to 1881, the Depot was restored in 1976 by Littleton Fine
Arts Guild members, through a Bicentennial grant and other funds.
Although it has been moved a couple of times, it is clearly an
integral part of Littleton’s history, a history that changed
significantly after becoming connected to the nation via railroads.
Operated by volunteer Guild members, it’s a local treasure that
deserves to become better known.
Youngman, whose watercolor “Evening Glow” hangs just inside the
Depot’s front door, is a plein air painter and a member of the
Colorado Watercolor Society. His statement advises artists to
“experience what you’re painting.” He looks for design, good
composition and presentation, he states.
Bruce White’s subtly-colored, detailed acrylic “30 Ford Pickup”
won the Best of Show award. It’s on the back baggage platform wall
across from the door. Two additional White paintings are included
in the show. He is an experienced Littleton -based graphic designer
First place was awarded to woodturner Paul Stafford for his
beautifully crafted “Birch Zippered Vessel,” with glossy wood that
carries a green tint. Look also for a pair of smaller wood/zipper
“Sharktooth,” a watercolor showing jagged mountain landscape by
Sean Willard, is the second-place winner.
Garnie Quick’s “Evening Glow,” third-place winner, is executed
in acrylic used as a water medium (transparent), and portrays a
brilliant sunset sky over a rural landscape.
Honorable Mentions went to:
Stacy Robinson’s “Leroy,” a textile figure with ceramic head,
arms, feet and decorative attire. A jester perhaps?
Joe Linhoff’s “Tohono Chul,“ an intensely colored evening photo
on canvas of the lovely garden in Tucson.
Stephen Blecher’s photo “High Plains Co-op.”
“Gossip,” a bronze sculpture by Shohini Ghosh of Highlands
