one hundred sawdust hearts

one hundred artists

one exhibition

one book

call for ARTISTS

Following the outstanding success of the O/S map exhibition, Untangled Threads is delighted to announce details of the 100 exhibition for Coastival 2018.  We are asking 100 artists to take part in an exhibition and illustrated publication called "100 Sawdust Hearts."

The hearts will have been pre-made, by hand, numbered and photographed en masse in the gallery, prior to delivery to artists. These photographs will form part of the exhibition, and appear in the illustrated publication. The hearts are replicas of 'sweetheart pincushions' made by convalescing soldiers in WW1.


"100 Sawdust Hearts" will form part of a much wider project, involving the making and exhibiting of 1,568 replica sweetheart pincushions, to mark the centenary of the end of WW1. (1,568 is the number of days WW1 lasted). The wider project is funding reliant.
