STROLL THE HISTORIC VILLAGE, ENJOY ART and MUSIC, EXPLORE UNIQUE SHOPS, and TAKE IN THE GLORIOUS VIEWS OF THE SHEEPSCOT RIVER!
Last Thursdays in 2020: June 25, July 30, August 27, September 24; 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. During the 2019 season, look for blues musician Rick Turcotte on guitar - on the Village sidewalks; and other fine musicians performing in galleries through the summer: Suki Flanagan playing harp, Jonathan Waldo playing classical guitar, David Lawlor playing jazz guitar, and Sylvia Tavares, vocals and guitar.
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. In August, Treats invites a local oyster farmer to shuck some bivalves!

Community Weaving Project
New in 2019: The gallery at 64 Main St. becomes a hands-on, drop-in community art space where visitors, locals, kids, and adults are invited to create simple weavings to take home or leave behind for the ‘community wall.’ MAKE ART!
