French 'Brocante' Highlights the Wiscasset Art Walk on July 28, 2016

Sidewalk Displays and Guest Artists Enhance the Meandering Experience

WISCASSET, MAINE – Ooh la la!  Don your beret, pocket your favorite French novel, and take une marche to Marston House, 101 Main St., during the July 28 Wiscasset Art Walk, for an Old World marketplace from 5-8pm. 

Long-time shop owners Sharon and Paul Mrozinski will be creating an outdoor marketplace, a brocante, stocked with their carefully selected antique French furnishings and textiles including bed and kitchen linens, French kitchen enamelware, and antique French serving dishes and utensils. According to the Mrozonskis, “We look for antique homespun textiles and furnishings from the 18th and 19th century that appeal to our design esthetic.  The more an item has been used and repaired, the more we tend to love it.” Featured in Martha Stewart Living, Country Home Magazine, the Boston Globe, and many other publications, Marston House – and the Mrozinskis – are a Wiscasset treasure!

Other sidewalk events during the evening will include a wheel-throwing demo by Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, garden-fresh floral bouquets hand-picked by members of the Garden Club of Wiscasset, strolling musicians, and art, art, art throughout the Village.

Park your car once and enjoy an evening full of sensual delights: look at paintings and sculpture, listen to music, smell the floral bouquets, taste specialty foods and wine, touch vintage fabrics, and learn about 18th century shipping in Wiscasset – all within the several blocks of Wiscasset Village.

Wiscasset's Art Walks are held on the last Thursday of the summer months: July 28, August 25, and September 29 from 5-8pm. Participant sites are marked with colorful streamers and touring maps are available at all participants throughout the Village.
