Coming up on September 19th will be 3rd Friday in Salisbury. Each of these events has gotten bigger and better in the last 2 years. A close friend of mine just mentioned that they’ve counted as many as a 1,000 people in attendance over the course of the event. That’s pretty amazing considering that little ol’ Salisbury has a TOTAL population of a little over 31,000.
It’ll be nice to see this pretty street have some people on it:
This month I am especially excited to an see an exhibit at the new Tony Weeg Studio & Art Gallery downtown. “Skate Deck Art Show” will be a unique experience in the fine art world. Local artists have been given skate decks, without the wheels, to paint an image on. The decks will then be listed in a silent auction, and all sales proceeds will go to the Salisbury Skatepark Project. I love that the artists get a unique medium platform and the town gets some much needed funds.
Check out this amazing poster that will be auctioned off as well. My very talented friend Brian Robertson designed it perfectly. You can check out some of his other work here.
It will be really awesome to see what people do with the challenge. I know a few of the contributors, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
