Wiscasset Village is home to a collection of artist-owned galleries featuring high quality paintings, assemblages, sculpture, and prints by local, contemporary, and historical artists. 

Sylvan Gallery, 49 Water St., Wiscasset 

Sylvan Gallery represents some of the finest contemporary realist artists of New England. Many of the artists working in oil, watercolor, and pastel have won significant national awards and accolades. The common thread among all the artists is their high degree of technical skill and craftsmanship and their passion to create their own unique visions of the natural beauty that surrounds us. 

Wiscasset Bay Gallery, 67 Main St., Wiscasset

Wiscasset Bay Gallery’s spacious exhibition galleries, wide pine floors, and brick-lined walls showcase fine American and European paintings from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries with an emphasis on Maine and Monhegan Island artists. Changing exhibitions of contemporary New England and Maine art are also featured on a monthly schedule. Open daily 10am to 6pm.

James Kochan Fine Art & Antiques, 31 Fort Hill St., Wiscasset

James L. Kochan Fine Art & Antiques takes pride in its record of accomplishment in guiding and assisting private and institutional clients in the building of important collections of American and British works of art and important artifacts from the period 1700-1850. The gallery specializes in maritime, portrait, landscape, and military artwork and offers superlative works by some of the most important painters and artisans working in 18th and 19th centuries. In addition, the gallery exhibits ship models, marine artifacts, and antique arms, as well as early American manuscripts, engravings, and rare books from the same period. 

Community Weaving Project, 64 Main St., Wiscasset

A cross-generational drop-in, hands-on art project to celebrate coming together. Visitors choose from an array of colorful materials to create simple and unique weavings to take home - or add to a common tapestry on the ‘community wall.’ Local artists and guest plein air artists also display their work in the gallery. Music!
