Here's Your Guide to December Third Friday

Sometimes it’s tough to hit all your Third Friday options because there’s too much ground to cover in just a few hours. But December Third Friday has a whole different feel, with fewer new shows in the mix.

It’s a great night to linger over artworks and talk with artists about their work, or catch up by seeing shows you might have missed during your First Friday travels.

Our favorites include a pair of exhibits featuring small works by dozens of artists — which continue this week at Grand ArtHaus and {9} The Gallery.

Here’s a look at fresh shows opening during December Third Friday.
