The Depot Art Gallery
The Depot Art Gallery is a successful, historic gallery and arts center with community spirit. The Gallery is housed in a restored Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad train station originally built in 1888. The station was retired in 1965 and relocated to its current location at 2069 Powers Ave., Littleton, Colorado. In 1979, a renovated 1890’s caboose was added, which is now used as one of our galleries.
The Littleton Fine Arts Guild
The Depot is owned by the City of Littleton, Colorado, and operated by The Littleton Fine Arts Guild whose purpose is to promote and advance fine art in the area. In 2017, the Guild celebrated its 55th Anniversary! Historically, the Guild consisted of 10 women interested in painting and now membership consists of nearly 50, with men and women from all walks of life. Discover works by our skilled artists in almost any medium… including 2D and 3D…from photography to watercolors, oils to pottery, encaustics to jewelry…and more. The Depot Art Gallery is well known for its unique structure and the history present in every corner. Gallery Shows are regularly scheduled and most shows are “Juried,” challenging the Guild Members to show their best work. In addition, there are frequent workshops, programs, and art classes.
