Featherstone Center for the Arts in Oak Bluffs celebrated 16 years in operation at the annual Art of Chocolate Festival this past weekend. Guests tried unlimited amounts of chocolate treats and beverages at the Sweet Sixteen preview party on Friday night, and could come back Saturday and Sunday on a pay-as-you-try basis.

According to executive director Ann Smith, chocolate with sea salt was the trend this year. Pam Besse made sea salt brownies, Pam Flam made pecan sea salt gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, and Dove donated sea salt caramels.
