What comes to your mind when you read this title? Do you struggle living "green" enough in such a green state? Do you battle a green-eyed monster? Are you obsessed with having more greenbacks? Such are the questions given in a call that went out to members of High Fiber Diet to create a piece of work based on the title "It's Not Easy Being Green." Each piece needed to include a minimum of 25% or more of recycled, re-purposed, or organic material on the visual side of the artwork. The color green could be used to any extent that the artist chose.
High Fiber Diet is a group of fiber artists committed to advancing their art professionally. HFD actively searches for exhibit venues, and members have the opportunity to submit work for juried group exhibitions. High Fiber Diet members challenge themselves to become more educated about art and design principles and to improve creatively on an individual basis. The group meets 7 times per year; meetings usually include a discussion topic, updates on current and upcoming exhibits, and sharing of members' current work.
