MARCH 15 -INDOORS ONLY!
March 15, 2019 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury!
It’s the last month that 3rd Friday is hosted exclusively indoors, before the event moves back outside in April. That means no artists and crafters outside on the street - but there is still tons to do and see inside. This month’s highlights include a theater performance, two gallery shows and live entertainment.
Salisbury Wicomico Art Council, also known as SWAC, will be hosting the Community Players production of "Love Loss and What I Wore". In celebration of International Women's Month - the one act 90 minute play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covers all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. Based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman. Tickets can be purchased online here.
Salisbury Art Space, located on the lower level of the SU Building, will be hosting Points of Juxtaposition: A Gathering of African American Artists. This group show features work from 5 African American artists all from the Eastern Shore area, each with their own styles and points of view. The show starts March 6 with an opening reception during 3rd Friday from 5 – 7:30 p.m.
Salisbury University Art Galleries | Downtown, located in the SU Building, will be showing METHODS: 2019 Art Department Faculty Exhibition. The exhibition focuses on how the creative process often mirrors the scientific method: artists make observations of the world around them, conduct experiments and then analyze those creative risks to form a conclusion or finished piece.
The Charles H. Chipman Cultural Center will be hosting one of its bi-monthly Laff n Jazz Lounge events, held every first and third Friday of every month. The event starts at 7 p.m. and online tickets are only twenty dollars, and includes local talent, music, comedy, poetry, and food. This week will feature special musical guest Rochelle Denise, and special guest comedians, Joshua Dennison and Ms. Kym. The Chipman Center is located across Route 50 on Broad Street, and is an extremely important historical landmark in our community.
The downtown restaurants have great specials and live entertainment planned for 3rd Friday. Check out Roadie Joe’s Bar and Grill from 5 – 8 p.m. for KT Tuminello’s Acoustic Dead and Such Tribute show. Brew River will have live music from Pistol Whipped band. Then for late night, Mojo’s will have DJ E-State and Market Street will have DJ Vybe.
In honor of St Patrick's Day, Barefoot Baby & Kids is having a Luck of the Irish Shopping Spree! Shoppers can draw a mystery discount from our pot of gold, find items tagged with a lucky shamrock for an additional 10% off, and 5% off anything green.
