Art Quilts Bring a Heat Wave to Second Story Gallery
High Fiber Diet, a special interest art group affiliated with the Columbia Fiber Arts Guild, will display piecework at Second Story Gallery in May. These are not your grandma’s quilts. They’re one-of-a-kind creations based on a theme chosen months ago that launched the year’s shows. The theme is Heat Wave, the colors are bold and the wall hangings range from the abstract to desert scenes to portraits.

The group notes that many of their past subjects have involved colors since choosing broad themes allows members to “bring forward all manner of imagery and emotions associated with those colors.” These members submit their finished pieces to be juried before they go on the road.
Participating artists this time are Mary Arnold, Elizabeth Bamberger, Susan Circone, Kimberly Connelly, Sherri Culver, Diane English, Pat Fifer, Mary Goodson, Terry Grant,Jill P. Hoddick, Laura Jaszkowski, Sheryl LeBlanc, Annette McFarlane, Mary McLaughlin, Karen Miller, Sara Shayne Miller, Sherrie Moomey, Jo Noble, Pam Pilcher, Lottie Smith and Emily Stevens.
Heat Wave will open with a reception for the artists on First Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Gallery, upstairs in the Camas Public Library. Free and open to the public, the opening party will include refreshments and music by keyboardist Brad Jensen.
The show continues through May 25 during regular library hours, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday
