Littleton Fine Arts Guild members were challenged to choose another artist and create a related work to exhibit in the “Side by Side” show that will run Sept. 12 to Oct. 29 at the Depot Art Center, 2069 W.

This involves stepping out of an artist’s comfort zone, according to publicist Peggy Dietz. Depot hours: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. For instance, guild member Kathy Triplett created “Starry Night at Sea” in relation to Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night.” See depotartgallery.org.
