Terri is a practicing contemporary artist and professor.

Terri Frew

Through her art, Terri is interested in contributing to the contemporary dialogue concerned with breaking down boundaries between art and craft. By utilizing materials and processes from Fiber Arts (textiles) and Illustration- media commonly considered to be from the realm of craft- in concert with conceptual content, she hopes to confront and challenge antiquated notions of art media hierarchy.

We are thrilled to welcome Terri Frew as full-time art faculty and our new gallery director. Terri is an exceptional teacher and a dedicated artist. Her drawings, paintings, and embroideries are dynamic and thought-provoking. She brings a fresh new perspective to our program.
