Sidewalk Activity Creates Dynamic Wiscasset Art Walk, Aug. 31, 2017

Music, Art, Dance, Oysters, and Tacos . . . oh, my!

WISCASSET, MAINE – Ingram Art & Antiques co-owner Kirsten Ingram thought the Wiscasset Art Walk needed some sizzle, so she’s invited a local jazz trio to provide the evening’s brassy sounds.  There’s plenty of outdoor art to view in the new courtyard gallery just off Main St., and take a look at the temporary sculpture, HESPER, on the Recreational pier.  Boston’s Luminarium Dance Co. will make its annual WAW appearance with improvisational dance throughout the Village. And, to make the meandering experience complete, the O’Oysters cart from Portland will be shucking on Middle St. along with tacos-to-go from El Rodeo Go – between Treats and Golden Wok – during the Wiscasset Art Walk on Thursday, August 31, 5-8pm.

The Congregational Church of Wiscasset’s photo booth, in front of Marston House, 101 Main St., makes a return appearance after last month’s rousing success – offering polaroid take-home souvenirs, costumes optional; and the Garden Club of Wiscasset will be selling their fresh-from-the-garden bouquets for the last time this season in front of Treats, 80 Main St. 

Indoors, Wiscasset Village’s fine galleries are featuring their late summer shows, including the coastal drawings of Mary Bradish Titcomb, considered the most significant woman artist of the Boston Impressionists, at Kochan Fine Art, 75 Main St. The Village’s specialty shops are always stocked with great take-home finds: DebraElizabeth’s, 78 Main St., is hosting Silver Pear Designs’ hand-made, leather and silver jewelry. Beelicious, 64 Main St., features tastes from Regina Spices and freshly baked cupcakes by D-zerts by Daphne of Westport Island, while Treats offers summer’s finest sips during a wine tasting, 4:30-7pm. Park your car for the evening and stroll the Village’s open doors and bustling sidewalks!
