Gladstone Hotel Presents
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – Hard Twist 12 – Yarn
(August 23 to Early January 2017)
Submission Deadline April 30, 2017

Juror’s Selections to be Announced May 26, 2017

HARD TWIST 12 – Yarn, the twelfth annual edition of the Gladstone Hotel’s signature show of textile-based art, invites artists to explore the art of narrative through textile.

Yarn me a yarn, spin me a tale, string me along – tell me a story! Whether speaking of the solid stuff of truth or of fabricating a tissue of lies, it’s hard to tell a story without the textile words and imagery that weave their way through the fabric of language and lore.

Hard Twist 12 – Yarn challenges artists to spin a tale with thread, but without words.
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.
