    Janet Simmons Sweet is an award winning, full time artist in her 14th year at the Alton Mill. Her oil artworks are noted for signature dramatic light, enhanced by atmospheric mood. She paints in collections, giving the individual canvas a framework within a larger concept. A Solo Exhibit is mounted every year to put the works into a relevant, current, meaningful context.

     "Light tranforms the mundane to the spectacular"
