Thursday, Sept. 28 will be the final Wiscasset Art Walk of the 2017 season, and unexpected happenings will make the evening fresh and fun. Attendees can enjoy art, music, camaraderie, and food trucks from 5-8 p.m. throughout Wiscasset village.
Start the evening with a wine tasting at Treats, at 80 Main St., and then step outside to Middle Street for fresh oysters, shucked by O’Oysters. Try a Mexican specialty from Taco the Town 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 people to their art, and shop owners who will help one make perfect gift selections. Sip and munch while listening to superb music in the galleries played by master musicians Jonathan Waldo on his handmade classical guitar and Suki Flanagan on harp.
Be sure to stop into Trifles, at 55 Main St., and ask proprietor Matthew Robinson to see Oleg Konstantinov’s “Articulated Animals” exhibit, featuring palm-sized creatures with moveable joints, all handmade of sterling silver.
Be on the front end of a new Wiscasset tradition and visit Moulinette, a shop of “joyful things” at 60 Main St., and take part in the village’s first Chief Chat, when from 6-8 p.m., Wiscasset Chief of Police Jeffrey Lange will meet and greet the neighborhood – community policing with an arts vibe!
Wiscasset Art Walk’s final exhibition at Midcoast Conservancy, at 36 Water St., 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, the SHED Talk at Dusk begins at 7:30 p.m. on the Creamery Pier. Doublet Design owners Mali Mrozinski and Jordan Gehman will describe their collaborative process that results in ever-expanding creative ideas and projects. Doublet Design will close its inaugural season this weekend with a sale of featured wares.
Wiscasset Art Walk participant sites are marked with colorful streamers and touring maps are available throughout the village. For more information, contact Lucia Droby at firstname.lastname@example.org or Violet Brandwein at 917-327-1449, or go to wiscassetartwalk.org.
