The Prairie Renaissance Cultural Alliance Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Diane Trew has been selected as the new Gallery Coordinator for the PRCA. Diane graduated from the East Carolina University with a BFA in Textile Design. She has worked in North Carolina as a weaver with a non-profit program that supported a women’s shelter. 
After moving to Minnesota she opened a gift shop in Benson called Swift Weavers. The shop sold scrapbooking/altered art supplies and yarn. In addition Diane had 8 looms there and conducted “weave your own project” classes.  She is an active rag weaver and fiber artist. In 2009 Diane applied for and was accepted into the Upper Minnesota Art Crawl known as the Meander. 

She is also interested in the pattern drawing method known as Zentangle drawing and in 2019 became one of their Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZT’s). In 2021, she taught ArtShare classes in Zentangle for the PRCA  to adults and children. Her work is exhibited in the Prairie Art and Gifts gallery. 

Diane continues to pursue  life as an artist while working part-time. The PRCA is very pleased to welcome Diane to her new position and to the greater Morris community!
