Hard Twist is now on in full swing for its fifth year at the Gladstone Hotel.
If you get a chance to check out this show, there are a couple of real gems on each floor to take a look at..!
Here are a couple of my favorite pieces... (didn't get a chance to take my own photos... so those I found online will have to suffice!)
Amanda McCavour - Spiro-graphs!
Hard Twist has become an important annual event within the Canadian textile art community as well as being a signature event for the Gladstone. For this fifth anniversary of Hard Twist 5: CHROMA! exhibit will be expanded to include public spaces on all four floors of the hotel and will run for two full months. It is free to the public 12pm-5pm daily in the third and fourth floor public galleries at the Gladstone. Year five of this annual juried exhibit is all about colour. Participating artists explore colour symbolism, meaning, relationships and perceptions through textile and fibre-based mediums.
Co-curators Helena Frei and Chris Mitchell invite artists to submit textile and fibre based works, which explore the expressive qualities of colour, colour symbolism, and/or the meaning, relationships and perceptions of colour.
