About the Group

High Fiber Diet (HFD), a group of fiber artists committed to advancing their art professionally, centers upon opportunities to exhibit and learn about the exhibition process.


In meetings, we review current and upcoming exhibits, discuss topics related to exhibitions, art techniques, the business of art such as copyright, curating, elements and principles of design and other exhibit related information. Members also have an opportunity to share their work and where they are exhibiting outside of HFD.


Our Venue Committee develops relationships with galleries, and schedules and coordinates shows for the annual exhibits. Members volunteer to serve on this committee.


Each year, a new Exhibit Committee of 3 to 5 members is formed to pursue a themed show. An Exhibit Committee exists for about three years. During that time, they create a theme, provide a prospectus for the exhibit, recruit independent jurors from the Pacific Northwest who are practicing artists or are affiliated with the arts, create an exhibit catalog, gather and transport an exhibit to venues and work with the venues secured by the Venue Committee that have been scheduled for an exhibit.


HFD maintains a blog. Please visit the HFD Blog to keep in touch with HFD meeting changes, events, announcements and to learn about topics of interest to fiber artists.


HFD meets 7 times a year at 1:30 pm in the months of November, February, April, May, July, August, and October at Crossroads Community Church, 2505 NE 102nd Ave, Portland, OR.


Due to COVID, HFD is meeting via Zoom. For more information about the group, check the HFD Blog or contact our meeting facilitator, Pam Pilcher: pilcherpam@gmail.com
