Here's a unique and interesting opportunity
to express your opinions, emotions, and artistic
talent regarding our recent election!  

Fiddlehead at Four Corners is holding a contest that will award
the winners with a $50.00 Gift Certificate to Fiddlehead. 

See details below and get your submissions
in before the deadline of December 11!  

"As a way to stitch fun and funky new patterns into our community fabric after such a turbulent election season, Fiddlehead at Four Corners would like to offer a chance for everyone to express themselves through art. There are two ways to enter the contest, contestants can enter one or both:

* Write about President-elect Trump in the style of either Hunter Thompson or William Shakespeare (1 page maximum)

* Draw or paint President-elect Trump in the style of either Vincent Van Gogh or Pablo Picasso.

The winner of each category will receive a $50 gift certificate to Fiddlehead and have their work shown and promoted at the gallery and online. Entries must be received by December 11, 2016 and submitted to 338 Main St. Bennington, VT 05201 or Please include: name, phone number and/or email address with all submissions.

So go ahead and ride the crest of that tall
beautiful wave. All entries will be judged on
artistic, not political, merit."

St. Patrick's Day Parade is just weeks away! 

It may seem a little early to be talking about the Green, but not when you have to organize a group, plan your float, and get registered to participate in the St. Patrick's Day Parade! 


March 12th will be here before you know it, and its the best way to promote your group, organization, or company.


Call 802-442-5758 for more information on how to participate.
