HIGH FIBER DIET
About the Group
High Fiber Diet (HFD) is a group of fiber artists committed to advancing their art professionally and producing annual exhibits. Meetings may focus on current and upcoming exhibits, art techniques, curating, elements and principles of design, and sources of inspiration. Members are encouraged to bring current projects to share with the group.
Each year, a new Exhibit Committee of 3 to 5 members is formed to pursue a theme for either our Juried show or, in some years, our Boutique show. The Exhibit Committee exists for about three years. During that time, the committee members may 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. The Boutique show is a smaller show geared to sales at local galleries and is open to trying new ideas.
Our Venue Committee develops relationships with galleries, and schedules show dates for our exhibits. Both the exhibit and venue committees provide opportunities for our member volunteers to learn valuable skills while producing a professional quality exhibit.
HFD meets at least 4 times a year at 10:30 am in these months:
April at Grant Park Church, 2728 NE 34th Ave, Portland;
July & August at Commonwealth Lake Park, in Beaverton;
Extra meetings may be called when needed.
Many venues host an artists’ reception where members can celebrate their finished artwork with friends and the public. For more information about the group, contact our meeting facilitator, Pam Pilcher: firstname.lastname@example.org
