World of Threads Festival in Canada

Sept 18 - Oct 4 2009
The Eighth Juried Fibre Exhibition in conjunction with the Sixth Oakville Festival for Fibre Arts

Common Thread is open to all practitioners of textile media and technique. It celebrates both tradition and innovation in textile arts. Traditional technique-based textile forms are exhibited beside contemporary, conceptual textile art. This is an opportunity to provide exposure for emerging and established artists to showcase their work in this unique international Canadian fibre arts festival. All works must be textile and/or fibre based through materials or techniques.

The SALON des REFUSES is a historic event created by Napoleon III in 1863 to exhibit controversial works rejected by the Paris Salon. Works not selected for a juried show may be exhibited for additional education and enjoyment. In this tradition, applicants whose work is not accepted to the Common Thread 2009 will be invited to participate in the Salon des Refus├ęs. This exhibition will run for the duration of the festival.

DEADLINE: 4.00 p.m. on Tuesday, 31st March, 2009.
