Through January 30
Reception and Holiday Pop-Up Show: 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, December 18

Kanon Collective, a co-op in the Art District on Santa Fe, is finishing off the year with a tenth anniversary toast to its own longevity — a show featuring work in every medium under the sun by past and present members, more than twenty artists in all. 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. Raise a glass to Kanon and get some last-minute gift-buying in the bag.
