Last Thursdays in 2018: June 28, July 26, August 30, September 27; 5-8pm
Enjoy a delightful summer evening as you park your car and stroll the charming Village of Wiscasset. View the incomparable art and meet the artists, sip some wine, and enjoy the sounds of our strolling minstrels. Be sure to visit the Village collection of one-of-a-kind shops - from high antiques to folk craft and mid-century furnishings; personal luxuries and gifts for loved ones back home.
Wiscasset is conveniently located on Rte. 1 in mid-coast Maine and is an easy drive north from Portland, Brunswick, and Bath. It's just south of Boothbay Harbor, Rockland, and Camden. Put Wiscasset Art Walk on your summer calendar!
Music, of course
Art and music TOGETHER are sublime. In July, visitors will enjoy listening to the foot-tapping sounds of Married with Chitlins at the fresh-air bistro on Middle St., blues/country singer Rick Turcotte, harpist Suki Flanagan, and classical guitarist Jonathan Waldo play in the galleries.
The Wiscasset Art Walk season ALWAYS begins with a wine tasting at TREATS - a great way to prepare for an evening of art and community.
