Kelliher grad to display art at Blackduck Area History and Art Center


Diana Collison-Jones found her desire to be an artist in the sixth grade.

She can recall her art teacher at Kelliher Public School, Paul Norman, telling her that he would provide her with any medium that she needed for her work.

“He knew that with our poverty status out there in the boonies I’d never be able to buy anything so he just set me up with tons of stuff,” Diana said. She and her family grew up in Shotley, Minn., on a small farm.
