CALL for ENTRIES: Laumeister
Vermont makes me think of club sandwiches. Vermont conjures images from the movie White Christmas of Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen singing “Snow, Snow, Snow” in the dining car on their way to rescue a ski resort sans the snow. Just prior to their spontaneous singing escapade (complete with napkin mountains, parsley trees and sugar snow), they were eating clubs. Vermont = club sandwiches. Have one with extra bacon for me when you make it into the exhibit for this next Call. Take a look…
Check out this Call for Entries from for the 4th Annual Laumeister Fine Art Competition at The Bennington Center for the Arts (Bennington, VT). The entry fee is about average, but the cash awards are great compared to the usual competitions. Don’t miss this opportunity…
