Gladstone Hotel's Hard Twist 10: Memory Exhibition ReviewOver the weekend, I took my almost three year-old nephew to his first art show - The Hard Twist: Memory exhibition at Gladstone Hotel. I figured a textile exhibit at the cool Gladstone Hotel was safer choice than a pristine gallery full of breakable pieces for his first introduction to the art world. And both my nephew and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
I always enjoy the Hard Twist exhibitions. Hard Twist 8 and Hard Twist 9 are two of my favourite exhibits from last year. And it has become an important annual event within the Canadian Textile Art community and a Gladstone Hotel signature event.

P.s!: The Gladstone Hotel is a perfect place to introduce children to art that is not specifically targeted for them. The hotel is kid-friendly and the building is just really cool!
