3rd Friday - Jan 15th
Updated: Jan 14
January 15, 2020 is the next 3rd Friday. 3rd Friday is the perfect excuse to get bundled up and explore Downtown Salisbury. Even though there won’t be vendors on the Plaza, there’s still local shops and restaurants to support, and art to be enjoyed.
Salisbury Art Space will be open on 3rd Friday showcasing its brand-new exhibition titled “Good Riddance 2020!” – filled by area artists sharing what they’ve made over the infamous 2020 year. The exhibition will be judged by local artists and educators Sarah Perdue and Heather Riser, whose work will be 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 for 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 helps raise funds for the arts in Downtown Salisbury.
