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 Laura Jaszkowski at joyincloth@gmail.com.

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

Two High Fiber Diet Exhibits Open at Coos Art Museum

On December 15th the joint “Heat Wave” and ”It’s Not Easy Being Green” exhibits opened at the Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay for their run through February 10th, 2018. There are also several other exhibits showing concurrently which include water colors, wood, felted birds, and gourds.  The Museum was hopping.  Around 200 guests toured through our large first floor gallery space and mingled with our artists. The group asked lots of questions about fiber art and seemed genuinely interested in the work and processes.  Those from HFD in attendance included Mary Arnold, Kimberly Connelly, Mary Goodson, Jill Hoddick, Pat Fifer, Toni Smith, Jo Noble, Franki Kohler, Susan Circone, Sara Miller, Sherrie Moomey, Noelle Evans, and Lulu Moonwood Murakami.

Here are a few photos of our attendees. A great time was had by all.
