WISCASSET — The Wiscasset Art Walk will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31 downtown.

The event will feature a local jazz trio to provide the evening’s brassy sounds. Outdoor art will be on view in the new courtyard gallery just off Main Street, and the temporary sculpture, “Hesper,’ is located on the Recreational pier.

Boston’s Luminarium Dance Co. will make an appearance with improvisational dance throughout the village and the O’Oysters Food Cart from Portland will be shucking on Middle Street.

Indoors, Wiscasset Village’s fine galleries will featuring their late summer shows, including the coastal drawings of Mary Bradish Titcomb, at Kochan Fine Art, 75 Main St.

Artist Nikki Pilgrim will talk about “Ritual of Painting” at 8:30 p.m. at SHED Talk on Wiscasset’s Creamery Pier.

Heavily influenced by her coastal surroundings, Pilgrim immerses herself in the ‘ritual of painting,’ using ornate color and pattern as she transfers her environment into her creative work. The Bath artist will exhibit and discuss her work with the public.

Silver Pear Designs, maker of silver and leather jewelry, is the featured artist at DebraElizabeth’s, 78 Main St.

Wiscasset Art Walks are held on the last Thursday of the summer months through September. Participant sites are marked with colorful streamers and touring maps are available throughout the Village.
