Heat Wave:
The Works of the High Fiber Diet Artists

June 8–July 20, 2018

Reception:  Friday, June 15, 5:00-8:00 pm

High Fiber Diet is a group of over thirty fiber artists from western Oregon and southwestern Washington dedicated to expressing their interpretation of the world and themselves through the use of fiber. This exhibit is focused on the concept of heat wave. “Orange is the color of heat: hot passion, hot jazz, desert heat, tropical heat, the warmth of Mediterranean stone walls or bright flowers. We are basking in its glow.”
