Salisbury Arts Centre’s annual open exhibition this year takes on the theme of textiles.

"The variety of ideas and forms of making within this exhibition are a sampler of current interests and lines of enquiry found within the world of contemporary textiles.” Michael Brennand-Wood, selection panel member. 

Threads showcases a varied range of two and three dimensional work by established and new makers who have submitted their work for selection by a panel of professionals from the contemporary textiles sector.

We were delighted with the response to our call out for entries with over 80 applicants submitting over 200 potential exhibits for our selectors to choose from.

Selectors were founder and editor of Selvedge Magazine, Polly Leonard, and textile artist, lecturer and arts consultant Michael Brennand-Wood.

Threads showcases the final selection of work by 46 exhibitors chosen by Polly and Michael, displaying a variety of approaches to textiles.
