Wiscasset’s first Art Walk of the 2015 season is on Thursday, June 25 from 5 to 8 p.m. Visitors and local residents are invited to park their cars and stroll the village. Visit gorgeous art galleries and studios, peruse Wiscasset’s remarkable array of unique shops, sample tasty treats at a variety of food venues, and enjoy beautiful Sheepscot River views from the pier.

A fine example of the blending of art and architecture is the Maine Art Gallery (MAG) on
Warren Street, a short and pleasant stroll from the village center. MAG opens its 2015 season with a juried exhibition of works by artists from across Maine, and the public is invited to the artist reception during the Art Walk. Exhibiting artist Ruth Monsell will be doing a live demonstration of cutting traditional freehand silhouette portraits from 4-7pm.

The Art Walks are held on the last Thursday of the summer months: June 25, July 30, Aug. 27, and Sept. 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. Participant sites are marked with shiny pom-poms and touring maps are available throughout the village. Major Sponsors-to-date are Big Barn Coffee, Carleton Realty and Carriage House Gardens.
