February 19, 2021 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury. This month's event is hosted indoors only - so that means no vendors outside on the street - but there’s still tons to do and see- from art exhibits to craft beer scavenger hunts. So, bundle up, grab some friends, and head out for a night on the town.
Downtown Salisbury is celebrating the month of “FeBREWary” with a MD Craft Beer Scavenger Hunt, now with ten participating locations. This annual tradition gives participants the month of February to collect five signatures on a gamecard for enjoying MD Craft beer, with the chance of winning great prizes. New locations on the map this year include Mogan’s Oyster House, Maya Bella’s Pizzeria, and the Looking Glass. Click here to download a game piece, or pick one up in participating locations.
Salisbury Art Space will be open on 3rd Friday until 7 p.m., showcasing its exhibition “Good Riddance 2020!” – filled by area artists sharing what they’ve made over the infamous 2020 year. Exhibition winners were selected by judges, local artists and educators Sarah Perdue and Heather Riser, whose work is on display in the Foyer gallery.
Life in Watercolor: The Works of Katherine Wood Day is also on display at Salisbury Art Space, with all works for sale as a fundraiser to Salisbury Art Space and Salisbury A&E District. Katherine Wood Day, also known as K. Wood (1953 – 2011) took up watercolor after a career as a photography archivist, and rarely allowed her work to be shown during her lifetime. Her husband, Michael H. Day, hopes the works will bring joy to viewers, and help raise funds for the arts in Downtown Salisbury. Salisbury Art Space is located on the lower level of the Salisbury University Building, on the plaza, and will be open until 7 p.m.
