Three red balloons will mark the Waldoborough Historical Society’s support of the ArtWalk Waldoboro Saturday afternoon, July 8. The museum will stay open until 4:30 p.m. to give visitors a chance to view its many local artifacts that fall into the category of art.

Professional photographs, oils, pastels and watercolors; plus charcoals, ceramics, metal sculpture and wood burning pieces are but a few of the many items from Waldoboro professionals of the past.

Handmade rugs, quilts, silhouettes and tapestries along with a theater curtain, a skiff, and ship models will be available for view in the Hauck/Bailey building. A visit to the museum at 1164 Main St./Route 220 is free and a great way to begin the local ArtWalk experience just down Main Street into the village proper.

The WHS is looking forward to this collaboration with Waldoboro’s artists each second Saturday in July, August and September.

Those who enjoy ice cream sundaes; Waldoboro slides of past parades taken by Warren Genthner; and a chance to view the many exhibits of the Waldoborough Historical Society’s collection of artifacts are invited to stop in Wednesday evening, July 12. Ice cream will be served beginning 6:30 p.m., followed by a short viewing of Genthner parade slides from past Memorial, Waldoboro and Veteran’s Day parades. The photos are in color, and viewers just might be able to identify some of the parade participants.
