Here are a few highlights:

Out of the box » Mixed-media artist Marcee Blackerby will show her one-of-a-kind works at Ken Sanders Rare Books, 268 S. 200 East. Using found materials, Blackerby creates intricate boxes that "are stories with windows, and like Pandora’s, their secrets beg to be opened," the artist said in a statement. A reception starts at 7 p.m., with music by artists such as Duncan Phillips and Ric Blackerby (Marcee’s husband).

On Broadway » UTah Artist Hands is celebrating its move to 163 E. Broadway (300 South) with a grand reopening and a group show, "A New Leaf," from 6 to 9 p.m. Gallery owner Pam O’Mara has run UTah Artist Hands at its location on 100 South, near the Salt Palace, since 2002. The old location got lots of conventiongoers, O’Mara said, but the new site — shared with Michael Berry Gallery, near the Broadway Centre Cinema and the Copper Onion restaurant — should bring in lots of traffic from locals.

Urban bazaar » The Urban Arts Gallery, at 137 S. Rio Grande St. (in The Gateway), holds its first Holiday Bazaar, with works by 40 local artisans. The bazaar is open during Gallery Stroll hours, from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, and will be open Saturday, noon to 8 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 4 p.m., visitors can get their pictures taken with a "funky" Santa in a hot pink sequined suit.

Three on the line » Three artists — painter Chuck Landvatter, ceramicist Megan Mitchell and photographer Joe Strickland — present different views of boundaries in "Borderline," an exhibit opening at the Rio Gallery in the Rio Grande Depot, 300 S. Rio Grande St. (450 West). The reception is from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibit runs through Jan. 10.

Mixed bag » It’s a juxtaposition of different works at Horne Fine Art, 142 E. 800 South, with its "Celebrate With Art" exhibit now through Dec. 24. Featured in the holiday show are autumn and winter landscapes by Phyllis Horne and Ken Baxter, horse scenes by Barbara Edwards and Glen Edwards, swimmer images by Jamie Wayman, and new paintings of Capitol Theatre by gallery owner Karen Horne. The reception is from 6 to 9 p.m.
