An annual event in the Western NY Wilds.
Celebrated locally 2014-2020 in partnership with The Belfast Organization for Artists to shine a light on our local Women Artists as a Creative resource; SWAN Day Allegany County NY has been held in honor of the many creative people working hard to keep the arts accessible to all members of our rural community.

Thank You so Much for All That You Do!

Our residents are participating in art activities at our local libraries and the Allegany Arts Association, The Wellsville Art Association, The Belfast Organization for Artists, The Tri-County Arts Council, The Wellsville Creative Arts Center, The Allegany Artisans, The Arts for Rural America, and other local creative groups and organizations. Although this special event was dedicated to Women Artists; our region is abundant with talented male artists who join them in this mission...There just isn't room to list/tag everyone here but, WE know who you are.
