High Fiber Diet is a group of fiber artists committed to advancing their art professionally. HFD actively searches for exhibit venues, and members have the opportunity to submit work for juried group exhibitions. High Fiber Diet members challenge themselves to become more educated about art and design principles and to improve creatively on an individual basis. The group meets 7 times per year (February, April, May, July, August, October, and November) on the third Tuesday from 1:30pm – 3:30pm. Venues may change. Meetings usually include a discussion topic, updates on current and upcoming exhibits, and sharing of members' current work. For more information about the group, check the HFD blog at www.hfd-highfiberdiet.blogspot.com or contact Elizabeth Bamberger at elizabethbamberger@gmail.com.

The group is affiliated with Columbia FiberArts Guild of Portland, Oregon

Elements Debuts in Woodburn

The new Elements exhibit officially debuted at the Woodburn Art Center on Saturday, Sept. 8th. The show looks beautiful hung on the freshly painted walls of the gallery. Above are Emily Stevens, Mary Goodson, Diane Born and Elizabeth Bamburger.

I took some photos and will share a few, here. The show was mainly hung by color and not by the elements. Here are two air pieces by Diane Born and Gerrie Congdon with a water piece by Catherine Beard.

Left to right are earth pieces by Gerrie Congdon, Karen Miller and Bonnie Bucknam. On the right is Mary Goodson's water themed quilt.

This photo is a fire themed quilt by Diane Born, a water quilt by Gerrie Congdon and water/earth? by Mary Arnold.

This is a felted stole by Maarja Paris.

Terry Grant's four pieces which are all the same size were hung as a unit. 

 Here is another photo of the room. I hope some more people showed up after we left!
