Privilege and consequences
Colorado Photographic Arts Center, 1070 Bannock Street
Until January 8th
CPACs Capper 2021, Privilege and consistency, defines the year we are leaving behind, capturing both unrest and revelations on inequality and social justice. Under the jury of Bicoastal photographer Kris Graves, whose own work elevates the innate humanity of People of Color, the national group focuses on artists who capture moments of protest and the underlying ironies. CPAC continues to demonstrate that it is ready for national publication; Do the organization a favor and show up, watch the show and talk about it.

Artist member holiday market
Firehouse Art Center, 667 Fourth Avenue, Longmont
Sunday, November 28th, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

A dozen or more local artists and makers will be waiting for walk-ins at the Firehouse Art Center on Small Business Saturday and lesser-known Artists Sunday. Why? Because a gift of original art chosen for someone special can be life-changing at a time of year when many people tend to get grumpy rather than happy. Firehouse also offers gift certificates for buyers who feel less confident about choosing art for someone else; pick it up in the gallery shop or online. They are not only suitable for art purchases, but also for class registrations.

Holiday market
Michael Warren Contemporary, 760 Santa Fe Drive

Do you have an art collector on your list? Michael Warren is transforming into a large, multi-artist emporium that is open daily and runs until Christmas Eve.
