High Fiber Diet's Simply Red Opens in Coos Bay
Several SAQA members have work in the High Fiber Diet exhibit, Simply Red. The reception at Coos Bay was lovely and artists Shirley MacGregor, Kimberly Connely, Diane Born, Elizabeth Bamberger, and Jill Hoddick (and husbands) were there along with 25-30 of the public. There was good food and wine and live period music. The gallery's board came and several made very gracious comments about the work. Pam Pilcher's redwood quilt made the poster, and Jill's piece was featured in a local coast newspaper. Shirley did a wonderful job hanging the show.
The gallery is a bit difficult to find. It is located at 1957 Thompson Rd, Coos Bay, just beyond the hospital. It is in the lobby of the Pacific Coast Medical Park, a medical building with no signs about a gallery or exhibit. The hours are 7:30am - 5pm Monday through Friday. The building is not open on the weekends. The exhibit runs until January 17, 2014.
