It may be the final Wiscasset Art Walk of the 2017 season, but unexpected happenings will make the evening fresh and fun! Enjoy art, music, camaraderie, and food trucks on Thursday, Sept. 28, 5-8 p.m. throughout Wiscasset Village.

Start your evening with a wine tasting at Treats, 80 Main Street, and then step outside to Middle St. for fresh oysters, shucked just for you by O’Oysters. In the mood for something more savory? Try a Mexican specialty from Taco the Town just across the street. Wander the sidewalks and enter through the welcoming open doors of fine art galleries and specialty boutique shops. Talk with gallery owners who will gladly introduce you to their art and shop owners who will help you make perfect gift selections.

Sip and munch while listening to superb music in the galleries played by master musicians Jonathan Waldo, on his hand-made classical guitar, and Suki Flanagan playing harp. 

Wiscasset’s Chief of Police, Jeffrey Lange, will meet and greet the neighborhood – community policing with an arts vibe! The Wiscasset Art Walks’ final exhibition at Midcoast Conservancy, 36 Water Street, is all about Maine Narratives. The paintings of local artist Mat O’Donnell speak loudly and boldly and tell the stories of people living around us. The artist talks about his work at 6:30 p.m.

With the early darkness this month, S.H.E.D. Talk begins at 7:30 p.m. on the Creamery Pier. Doublet Design owners Mali Mrozinski and Jordan Gehman describe their collaborative process which results in ever-expanding creative ideas and projects. Doublet Design will close its inaugural season this weekend with a sale of featured wares.

The Wiscasset Art Walks are held on the last Thursday of June through September from 5 to 8 p.m. Participant sites are marked with colorful streamers and touring maps are available throughout the Village.
