Alumna artist donates 'historical' painting

Following her Featured Artist Show at the David A. Howe Library in Wellsville, AU alumna Betty W. Sweet ’80 recently donated a painting of the historic York’s Corner Store, one of the earliest buildings constructed in the town of Willing in Allegany County, to the Allegany County Historical Society.

Sweet started the painting on scene when she lived in the area during the ’70s and finished it recently. She has a gallery on Hunter Mountain in the Catskills and works as a muralist each winter in Florida.
