Friday's the night for people who want to give art for Christmas: the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll's December edition, in which local galleries have their holiday offerings on display.
The stroll takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. at participating Salt Lake City galleries. Here's a sample of what's going on:
Market at the Art Barn • The Salt Lake City Arts Council will open its 32nd annual Holiday Craft Market at Finch Lane Gallery, 54 S. Finch Lane (just east of 1300 East). Dozens of local artists will have their handmade artwork available for sale including letterpress cards, holiday ornaments, scarves and hats, cups and bowls, jewelry and art glass. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends.
'Nutcracker' preview • At Horne Fine Art, 142 E. 800 South, owner and artist Karen Horne will give a sneak peek at the artwork she has created to mark the 60th anniversary of Ballet West's production of "The Nutcracker," before it appears on the commemorative program for the ballet's run at the Capitol Theatre, Dec. 10-27. Horne also is featuring new works by nine artists.
Underground and more • Ken Sanders Rare Books, 268 S. 200 East, has redecorated its gallery for the Christmas season. Highlights include original drawings by comics legend R. Crumb, paintings by Tom Russell, Bob Dylan paintings by outsider artist Lamar Sorrento, and signed posters and prints by R. Buckminster Fuller, Peter Max, Richard Avedon and more.
Art under $100 • At Local Colors of Utah, 1054 E. 2100 South, it's Marley's Holiday Shoppe, with many items under $100. Also displaying this month is Susan Gallacher, who is showing her plein-air work.
