If Past Is Prologue Canyon Road Contemporary Art, 403 Canyon 505-983-0433, December 23–January 7 reception December 23, 5–7 pm The gallery celebrates its 100-year anniversary with a group show comprising 17 artists and introducing emerging local painters Pablo Perea and Madina Croce. The work of Cuban-American Perea nods toward Escher as it chronicles the multifaceted experience of immigration via slightly surrealistic portraits of one woman, while self-taught impressionist Croce employs vibrant colors to capture the “emotional essence” of landscapes.—ET
