Third Friday Durham is a recurring event during which the Durham art venues host free receptions. This is a great time to check out the new and continuing exhibits. Musicians and other entertainers busk on the sidewalks (moving inside during inclement weather) and many artists open their studios to visitors. 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.
