Galleries and Shops Invite Visitors to Celebrate the Season
WISCASSET, MAINE – The Village of Wiscasset’s first Art Walk of the 2016 season is on Thursday, June 30, from 5-8pm. Galleries, studios, and shops in the Village welcome local residents and visitors from away to enjoy the evening’s abundance of sights, sounds, and tastes! The Nickels-Sortwell House, owned by Historic New England, and Wiscasset’s self-guided Museum in the Streets, provide a glimpse of an historical past when the Village was a proud shipbuilding community.
Park the car for the evening and stroll the sidewalks: listen to meandering minstrels; taste wine at Treats; be overwhelmed by the trove of art in the galleries; and shop for personal finery, old books, or fine gifts while enjoying sparkling views of the Sheepscot River.
Wiscasset’s Art Walks are held on the last Thursday of the summer months: June 30, July 28, August 25, and September 29 from 5-8pm. Participant sites are marked with colorful streamers and touring maps are available throughout the Village. Major Sponsors for Wiscasset Art Walk 2016 are Ames True Value, Big Barn Coffee, Carleton Real Estate, Carriage House Gardens, First National Bank, and Fogg Art Restoration. Additional sponsors are the Carl M.P. Larrabee Agency, Cod Cove Inn, French & Co. Antiques, and Red’s Eats.
