Chili contest and art at Walnut Beach shops next week

Walnut Beach will host an Artist of the Month and Annual Chili contest during an art stroll Thursday, Nov. 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Local artists will display selected works, from paintings and photography to jewelry and sculpture. The names and locations of artists will be listed on the Walnut Beach website starting Monday, Nov. 14, and at the Artfish42 Gallery the night of the event.

The artists will be present at each location with a small reception. All of the work will be available for purchase.

Businesses will also be offering chili made by local cooks and restaurants.

Each chili will have an ingredient list for wary tasters. Visitors will be encouraged to try them all and then vote for a favorite. The chili eating begins at 6:30 p.m.
