Support Local Artists at Littleton’s Holiday Art and Gift Market

A stroll through downtown Littleton, Colorado will reward you with tons of opportunities to find local, handmade gifts and artwork on just about every block along Main Street. As the cozy downtown scene grows, new local cafes, boutiques, and galleries keep popping up, providing residents and tourists alike with endless opportunities to find that perfect present for the special people in your life. However, the heart of Littleton’s art scene is in the Depot Art Gallery, just east of Main Street. This train depot-turned-art gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm, where you can currently find the annual Holiday Art and Gift Market. The market is open until January 3rd, so there is still plenty of time to peruse local artwork and handmade goods for anyone left on your holiday gift list, yourself included!

You will find all sorts of unique treasures at the Holiday Art and Gift Market this year. Oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings line the gallery walls alongside photographs and pastels, while every available flat surface is covered with jewelry, ceramics, sculptures, and more! This non-juried event is curated to offer Littleton’s best artwork and wares to give and enjoy with friends and family this season. You can find even more local artwork for purchase down the street at the Town Hall Arts Center, where the Affordable Art Show runs through January 23rd. Both shows are hosted by the Littleton Fine Arts Guild, which boasts more than sixty current members working in a wide variety of mediums.

The Littleton Fine Arts Guild is a non-profit organization that was started in the 1960s by ten women interested in painting. The LFAG maintains and operates the historic Depot Art Gallery, giving its members a space to showcase their paintings, photography, and artisanal wares all year round. Built in 1888, the building itself was originally a railroad train station. The station was retired in 1965 and relocated down the street to where it currently operates at 2069 Powers Avenue. The gallery space includes a renovated caboose from the 1890s and boasts plenty of free parking next to the Douglas H. Buck Community Center. No matter what time of year, the historic gallery is certainly worth a visit.
