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

What's Blue to You at Lower Columbia College, Longview, WA

Quite a few HFD members with friends and family in tow, made it to The Art Center at Lower Columbia College, Longview, WA for the opening reception of the What's Blue to You exhibit. I liked how they put the blue and orange quilts together. The whole exhibit really looks great in this space. Following are some photos of the show and the peeps.

What's Blue to You at Portland International Airport

High Fiber Diet's exhibit "What's Blue to You?" is now on display at the Portland Airport in Concourse B.  It's behind security, so you have to be a traveler in order to see the show.  The exhibit will be up through the end of May, 2015, so if you are traveling, be sure to set aside a few extra minutes to see the 17 quilts interpreting the word "blue".

 In the same concourse, across the hallway, is an exhibit by the Westside Modern Quilt Guild depicting Portland Bridges.  High Fiber Diet members have quilts in the Bridge exhibit as well. There are lots of reasons to travel this winter and spring!
