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 6:30pm – 8:30pm. 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 Laura Jaszkowski at joyincloth@gmail.com.

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

Rhythm and Hues Opening Reception

It was a rainy drive, but a warm reception at the Latimer Quilt and Textile Museum in Tillamook. Here are a couple of views of one wall of the show. I am sorry I did not get photos of other areas. I hope someone might send them to me.

We had a great turn out of the artists and people who came to see the show.
