March 20th 2015 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury, and proves that even in the winter months, Downtown Salisbury has tons to offer! The restaurants and shops will be open with 3rd Friday menu specials, and the bars are ready to rock with live entertainment booked all night long.
Salisbury University | Downtown Campus, on North Division Street, will be open with two exhibitions this Friday, Light Shadow Wave Water by Edward Brown and the new works of Kristin Walsh. Brown, an associate professor in SU’s Art Department, uses charcoal to draw dark and light tones, accentuated with calligraphic lines, to render the rhythmic and nebulous forms of waves at Assateague Island.
Kristin Walsh’s work also draws from landscapes, and investigates how changing uses of the environment refuse any clean distinction between “natural” and “manmade.” She uses installation, photographic prints and sculpture to construct a series of object-landscape scenographies to make visible how and why an object creates a spatial void in a landscape.
The Art Institute and Gallery will also be opening a brand new exhibition, the 2015 Photography Show. Works from area photographers will be on display, and judged by Carl Goldhagen. In addition, the solo exhibition of Scott Kasden | Photography on Metal will be on display in the Foyer Gallery. The AIG is located on the lower level of the Gallery Building off the Plaza.
Jam out this 3rd Friday with the UMES Jazz Ensemble at SWAC! The Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council will be hosting a Jazz & Pop Jam Session in the SWAC Arts Space, featuring the UMES Jazz Ensemble! The UMES Jazz Ensemble has traveled all over the county, and even the world, and has performed with some of the most famous Jazz names in the industry. Listen to live music, or bring your instrument and jam out! The show starts at 6pm! SWAC Headquarters is located on Poplar Hill Avenue on the 2nd floor above Season’s Best Antiques, and elevator access is available.
The Downtown Bars and Restaurants will all be ready for 3rd Friday with specials for the dinner crowd, and plenty of entertainment planned for the night. Headquarters Live, Downtown Salisbury’s brand new music venue will have Cold Gin, an amazing Kiss Tribute Band at 8pm.
The Brick Room will have live music from Breakfast. Mojo’s will have Flint Eastwood, Cellar Door will have Josh Pryor and Market Street will have DJ B-Side. Echelon will have the Zion Reggae Band, and Brew River will have live music from the Bo Dickerson Band starting at 6pm, and maybe…just maybe… an open Dock Bar! Who’s ready for Spring?
