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 at Mt. Hood Community College

Rhythm & Hues:  A Collection of Works by High Fiber Diet is on display through November 21, 2013 at the Mount Hood Community College Visual Arts Gallery, 26000 Stark Street, Gresham, Oregon.  The show is open 9am - 5pm Monday through Friday, closed weekends and holidays.  The gallery number is 503.491.7309.

Reflections in a pond, a day at the beach, a walk in the woods – all the small moments make up a life.  Life is about emotion and color and heart.  High Fiber Diet artists use rhythm and hues, composition and color, to manifest their connection to the beat of everyday life. Humans are intimately connected to, swathed in, and surrounded by fiber from the day we are born until the day we die.  The works in Rhythm & Hues capture some of the days and moments in between.

Rhythm and hue are magical parts of life.  Rhythm involves the paradox of excitement created by movement contrasted with the comfort of predictability.  Hue, the most recognizable component of color, contributes visual definition, emotional content and pure beauty to human experience.  Rhythm and hue bring their magic to art as critical components of visual composition. 

The members of High Fiber Diet challenged themselves to observe the use of rhythm and hue in their lives and in their creative processes and to produce work inspired by this introspection.  The resulting exhibit reflects the infinite ways this theme can be understood and implemented.
