Art and music TOGETHER are sublime. During the 2019 season, look for blues musician Rick Turcotte on guitar - on the Village sidewalks; and other fine musicians performing in galleries through the summer: Suki Flanagan playing harp, Jonathan Waldo playing classical guitar, David Lawlor playing jazz guitar, and Sylvia Tavares, vocals and guitar.

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. In August, Treats invites a local oyster farmer to shuck some bivalves!

Art in the Galleries There is always abundant and beautiful art, like the painting above, In the Orchard by Leon Kroll. In August, artists were painting in the Village en plein air.

Food Trucks in Wiscasset Village during WAW

In summer 2019, WAW hosted O’Oysters, Blazing Tomato Woodfired Pizza, and Scrummy Afters Candy Shoppe-on-wheels! Middle St. becomes a pop-up bistro with music and camaraderie! Come for the art, stay for the fun!

Community Weaving Project

New in 2019:  The gallery at 64 Main St. becomes a hands-on, drop-in community art space where visitors, locals, kids, and adults are invited to create simple weavings to take home or leave behind for the ‘community wall.’ MAKE ART!
