3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury | Feb 17, 2023
Salisbury, MD: February 17, 2023 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury, and it is the perfect excuse to get bundled up and head out for a night downtown. This month's event is hosted indoors only - so that means no artists and crafters outside on the street - but there is still tons to do and see inside. From shops and gallery exhibitions, to restaurants and live entertainment there is always something for everyone to enjoy.
Salisbury University Art Galleries will host an opening reception for the all-new exhibition by Brooke Rogers: Mura Vive / Living Walls, on display through the end of March. The exhibition features new paintings by Brooke Rogers, a well-known Salisbury University Professor of Art including works based on his recent sabbatical trip to Rome and three-dimensional constructed paintings created-using cannibalized parts from previous works. The opening reception will be held from 5 – 7 p.m. and will include the performance of a new experimental jazz composition by Jerry Tabor.
Salisbury Art Space, located just downstairs from Salisbury University Art Galleries, will be open late for 3rd Friday with the 2023 Members Showcase on display highlighting works submitted by Salisbury Art Space members in all styles and mediums. It’s a great show to stop by and admire the wide range of amazing talent Salisbury has living right here in our community. From painting to photography, mixed media and 3-D, there will be a little bit of everything on display. Salisbury Art Space will be open until 8 p.m. with refreshments and kids crafts in the classroom.
Downtown Salisbury’s retail shops will be open late for 3rd Friday, and there are several special events to check out this month. Stop by Homes4Hope Therapeutic Solutions, located right on Main Street, who will be providing light snacks and drinks while visitors create and take home their very own gratitude jar.
