Artists meet ‘spirit’ challenge in Littleton

Posted

Artist members of the Littleton Fine Arts Guild, who operate and exhibit at the historic Depot Arts Gallery, 2069 W. Powers Ave., Littleton, entered a new show that challenged them to “express your artistic spirit.” The intent of the challenge was to encourage long-practicing artists to try new techniques in their specialized fields — in materials, style, technique, etc. …

The resulting exhibit, “Artistic Spirit,” which runs through Nov. 10, was juried by Denver artist and teacher Patricia Barr Clark, a plein air watercolorist who has painted around the world. She belongs to the Colorado Watercolor Society and the Plein Air Artists of Colorado.

Clark awarded “Best of Show” to Lynette Wilson for her oil painting “Next in Line” and First Place to Pat Dall for her ink-resist watercolor “Ink Resist Pots.” Fred Bickle won second place for his brushwork-intense acrylic painting “Weathered” and third place went to Sally Van Der Kamp for her stained-glass creation “Rocky Mountain Spirit.” Honorable mentions were awarded to Renee Zaccardi, Jennifer Riefenberg and Lynne Furrer.
