(Medford, OR) – March 6, 2013– High Fiber Diet, a Northwest-based fiber artists’ group affiliated with the Columbia FiberArts Guild of Portland, presents textile works as part of the Rogue Gallery & Art Center’s 2013 Main Gallery exhibition series. The Elements: Air, Earth, Fire and Water exhibit features wall hangings, mostly artistic quilts, as well as felted and wearable art. The artwork demonstrates innovative techniques, superb craftsmanship, original design, and a unique artistic vision. Each fiber artist has created a window into the natural world influenced by the four elements: earth, air, water or fire.
