Artist David Wicks, a former Littleton resident, returned to the Depot Gallery to jury the newest member’s exhibit: “Light and Shadow, Day and Night,” which runs until July 14. He selected Pat Dall’s ink-resist watercolor “Evening Shops” as Best of Show.
It depicts a woman strolling past a colorful yet closed coffee shop in evening light. Artificial light adds to the shadows in the scene.
Awards also went to Anna Marie Linning: First Place for “Glory Morning”; to photographer Judy Deist: Second Place for “Escher White”; and Third Place to Rita Bentley for her oil painting, “Shadow Cat.” Honorable mentions went to Pat Dall, Fred Bikle and Peggy Dietz (two).
Wicks’ website speaks of his interest in both painting and sculpture. He uses a variety of mediums and focuses on a wide range of subjects. Littleton art lovers will probably remember his watercolors of favorite spots in Europe, which have hung at the Littleton Museum, at the Depot and in statewide Colorado Watercolor Society exhibits and Lone Tree exhibits.
