The Gladstone Hotel, Toronto

Hard Twist 13: Thread

The Gladstone Hotel is pleased to present Hard Twist 13: Thread, the thirteenth annual edition of the Gladstone Hotel’s signature show of textile-based art, invites artists to submit work on the theme of thread.

Thread as connection, thread as communication, thread as way-finding. “Thread” in all its multifarious meanings, following the clues implicit in the fabric of language that guide us in the navigation of our complex lives.

PS: “clue” derives from “clew”, whose original meaning was “a ball of thread”.

Hard Twist is an important annual event within the Canadian textile art community as well as being a signature exhibition program for the Gladstone Hotel.

Owl Ridge Acres : The Great Canadian Tree Warmer Project Residency 

How would you warm up your tress on an artist residency that is also a working Maple Sugar Bush? During March 2016, in Bancroft, Liz Pead took a swipe at it.  Of course a hockey game broke out. Digital short, (2:32) documents the mayhem. "The Sweetest Game"
