textile artists take note: gladstone goes fuzzy

I came across a very exciting call for entries to "An Exhibition of Tactile Textiles at the Gladstone Hotel" via Akimbo. "Innovative and cutting-edge" Canadian textile artists whose work focuses on the tactile dimension of the craft will have the opportunity to show their work at the hotel (from October 11 to November 26, 2006) in a show called HAND-FACE-BODY.

"The jury will consider both professionally-trained as well as self-taught artists who dedicate their practice to a wide spectrum of textile media including commercial design, fine art, experimental and inter-disciplinary art, fine craft, installation and environmental works. " If that sounds like you (sure it does!), you should apply. An expression of interest is due May 15th. More deets here.

And !<<<Holy crap alert>>>!: This call for entries also indicated that Toronto will be hosting the Textile Society of America's Tenth Biennial Symposium from October 11th to 14th, 2006, which will involve a Toronto-wide celebration of textile art and design including textile exhibitions and events. Can't wait to find out more...
