St. Patty's 3rd Friday THIS Friday, March 17th!

March 17, 2017 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury.   Even though 3rd Friday won't be hosting outdoor activities and vendors until April, there is still tons to do in Downtown Salisbury!  This month's 3rd Friday coincides with St. Patrick's Day, so wear green, and get ready for a night in Downtown Salisbury filled with live music, art and shopping.  
The Salisbury Art Space (formerly Art Institute and Gallery), located on the lower level of the Gallery Building, will showcase the Collection of Contemporary Irish Art of Hazel and Ronald Geesey.  Ms. Geesey, a native of Ireland, began assembling this impressive collection of works in the 1990's after her marriage to Ronald Geesey. Much of the collection was purchased in Ireland where they spent their summers, as they escaped the heat of Baltimore.  The Geesey's relocated to Snow Hill, Maryland in 2006.  It is perhaps the best collection of its kind on the Eastern Shore. Salisbury Art Space will also host kids' crafts, with take-away shamrock art!  

Salisbury University Art Galleries | Downtown Campus continues its exhibition titled Nature / Nurture, and will be hosting a reception for the show during 3rd Friday.   This group exhibition explores the ways in which the natural world has been shaped and transformed by humans and in turn how the biology shapes our lives.   Featured artists in the exhibition include Laura Ball, Stephanie Garon, Onajide Shabaka, Anne Mondro, Judi Bommarito, and Darina Karpov.  SU Art Galleries | Downtown Campus is now located in the Gallery Building across from Maya Bella Pizzeria.

Since Day became mayor of Salisbury, don't frequent Third Fridays because that's a dangerous area of town which he's only made more dangerous with his idiocy. Thanks but no thanks.
