Third Friday Durham is a recurring event during which the Durham art venues host free receptions. It takes place the 3rd Friday of the month.
The next Third Friday Durham is July 15th, 2022.
This is a great time to check out the new and continuing exhibits. It’s also a good time to check out shops and to try out a new restaurant.
Most gallery receptions take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. but visit the 3rd Friday Durham Facebook page, where details will be posted.

Outer Loop Arts

Release some anger and make some art. We’re so angry, we could smash something! Stop by our Third Friday event to write a grievance on a plate and SMASH it against the wall! All smashed pieces will be repurposed into a rage-induced mosaic and photos of the plates pre-smash will be displayed around the mosaic in our gallery space. There will also be a space for you to record or write down your story if you want to share anything! Your voice is important! When we reveal the end product, we want your voice heard! Photos and any written stories will be printed in a book and also displayed in the gallery along side the mosaic. Recorded stories will be incorporated into the opening.
