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

“WOW” Juror Statement August 6, 2018
Our challenge as jurors was to curate for “Visual Impact”. The pieces contained in this
exhibit have just that. From the original design to the bold use of color, stitching and
form, these fiber artworks invite the viewer to come a little closer and explore. Although
we each brought different background and experience to the selection process, our
points of view were very much in sync. As jurors we are proud of this show and hope
that others will also enjoy the richness of this work.

We thank you all for your excellent work and look forward to your helping hands as we
travel, educate, and delight the people of the northwest!
