Music, art and chili at this month’s Art Stroll

The next Walnut Beach Art Stroll will be Thursday, Nov. 21, at Walnut Beach.

The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Firehouse Gallery, 81 Naugatuck Avenue with an opening reception of its final exhibit for the season, “Non-Themed.” There will be artwork submitted by local artists and judged by Milford artist Rick Senft. Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place, with winners announced at 6:45 p.m.

Strollers can proceed to Sobobo, 42 Naugatuck Avenue, and meet November’s artist, Patricia Brundage, a photographer who captures “that moment in time.” There will be artwork by local artists, Judy Ruskin, Ed Steinerts, Sheila Pite, Harold Davis, Mariana Furtney, Allan Dudek and more as well as jewelry by Carlyne Labrecque, Sam Rawls, William Ahern, Claudio Altesor, Sally Ann Endelman, Laise and Anilese.

All artwork will be available for purchase.

Walnut Beach Creamery will offer samples of gourmet ice cream.

At Seaside Wine and Spirits, 38 Naugatuck Avenue, people can taste the spirits of the holidays.
