CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – Hard Twist 11 – Spin

Exhibition Dates: August 24th to December 27th, 2016
Submission Deadline: April 30th, 2016
Juror’s Selections: Announced May 27th, 2016

HARD TWIST 11 – SPIN, the eleventh annual edition of the Gladstone Hotel’s signature show of textile-based art, invites artists to give us their own spin on spin.

To spin is to transform. Whether it’s turning a fleece into yarn for a cozy sweater or rotating a dubious fact through angles of truth, spinning changes what you started with into something very different.

There are only three criteria; work must:
– be textile or fibre related
– explore or express ideas connected to this year’s theme
– be designed to hang on a wall or be lightly suspended from a ceiling – we are unable to accept free standing work due to the nature of the exhibition space

Hard Twist has become an important annual event within the Canadian textile art community as well as being a signature event for the Gladstone.
