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

"It's Not Easy Being Green" Show Sales Exceeded Expectations!

Over the course of the "It's Not Easy Being Green" exhibit, 4 pieces of our exhibit's fiber art sold. The two most recent sales include Sara Miller's piece "Keep on Greenin' On" to an individual who originally saw her piece in La Conner, Washington, and Linda Reichenbach's "Good Vibrations" from the Latimer venue. The two earlier sales from previous locations include Terry Grant's "Basilica of Quito" and Pam Pilcher's "Envious Edgar".

Our committee, on behalf of High Fiber Diet, heartily congratulates these 4 artists and all participating "Green" exhibit artists for a fabulous run. We look forward to sharing the gallery at Coos Art Museum, Coos Bay, Oregon, with the "Heat Wave" show for one last viewing from December 15, 2017 to February 11, 2018.
