The Depot Art Gallery is a historic gallery and arts center housed in a restored train station. The station was originally built in 1888, and served the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad. It was decommissioned in 1965 and moved to its current spot on Powers Avenue in Littleton, Colorado.
A restored and updated 1890’s-era caboose was added to the site in 1979 and turned into one of the Depot’s galleries. The Depot primarily houses the work of the Littleton Fine Arts Guild, focusing on local artists. However, non-members throughout Colorado are invited to apply for entry into the yearly All Colorado Show.
Their members work across a broad cross-section of media. There are paintings from watercolor to oil to acrylics, pastel pictures, etchings and silk paintings, jewelry, glass and ceramic sculptures, fiber arts, woodworking, and most recently, photography.
In addition to the All Colorado Show, another popular annual event is the recently-debuted Colorado Aperture Show. This show is exclusive to photographers. The Littleton Fine Arts Guild also has several non-gallery exhibit venues where members have the chance to show and sell their art. They offer classes and workshops for continued education for community members, and the Depot itself is available to rent.
Entrance and parking are free. All the artwork on display is for sale.
