And for the gallery’s Third Friday reception, Kanon will host a shopper’s paradise of a holiday pop-up show, with arts and crafts by Lauri Lynnxe Murphy, Tammy Shine, Victoria Regina, Sherry Crawford, Katie Wells, Dea Webb and others.

Colorado Photographic Arts Center
6:30 p.m. Friday, December 18
Tickets: $100 individual, $125 couple (one artwork)

It might seem pricey at $100 a head, but CPAC’s Walk Away With Art fundraiser includes the usual party stuff — wine, beer and noshes — as well as the opportunity to take home an original work of art by one of five exceptional Colorado photographers. Space is limited to 25 lucky participants, so reserve ASAP; the artists — Evan Anderman, Brenda Biondo, Patti Hallock, Denis Roussel
and Mark Sink + Kristen Hatgi-Sink — will be in the house to chat up guests.
