"Father and Son” by Brian Serff was awarded Best of Show by juror Tanis Bula in the Depot Art Gallery’s 2014 Anniversary Show, which runs through June 8.

Littleton watercolorist and teacher Tanis Bula was juror for an exhibit marking the anniversary of the Littleton Fine Arts Guild, which celebrates 52 years as a local organization.

Members first met in the Grange building at Orchard Road and University Boulevard, then renovated the century-old Littleton Santa Fe Depot as a Bicentennial project that involved the community, members and, in some cases, their spouses.

The LFAG maintains a year-round program of art exhibits, open to the public without charge, and is a fine place to locate a one-of-a-kind gift.

Bula awarded the Best of Show ribbon to member Brian Serff for his “Father and Son,” which reflects time he spent in Afghanistan some years ago. She also awarded numerous other awards.

Publicist/photographer/member Peggy Dietz said this show reflects the very newest professional artwork by LFAG members. It includes oil painting, pottery, photography, mixed media, watercolor and batik.
