Music, of course
Art and music TOGETHER are sublime. In August 2018, visitors enjoyed the foot-tapping sounds of Married with Chitlins on the Creamery Pier, Rick Turcotte at the fresh-air bistro on Middle St., harpist Suki Flanagan in Sylvan Gallery, and classical guitarist Jonathan Waldo in Wiscasset Bay Gallery.
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.
