“Last Leaves” by Kimberly Connelly of High Fiber Diet.
“Fractured, Textured Red” by Georgia French of High Fiber Diet.
The leaves are changing, the sun is setting earlier and the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum is turning red. Red with quilts! The Museum’s fall exhibit will feature the show “Simply Red” by Portland, Oregon fiber group High Fiber Diet.
High Fiber Diet is a group of fiber artists committed to advancing their art professionally. They challenge each other to become more educated about art and design principles and to expand their repertoire by focusing on creativity. Their show, Simply Red, has been booked for all of 2014 and into 2015, which is why it will be on display in Cannon Beach for such a limited time.
Each piece speaks to the diverse and deep artistic background of each artist. The work couldn’t be more different from each other! From traditional looking quilts to the more complex and intricate abstract designs. While each piece is unique, together they form a cohesive show that screams – RED!
Simply Red will open on Saturday, October 11 at 6:00 p.m. at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum with wine and hors d’oeuvres. Artists will be available to discuss their work and provide insight into the detailed work that textile work takes.
Special note, the Simple Red exhibit’s run has been extended due to its popularity. It will be on display through Sunday, January 4, 2015.
