The Party’s Over by Connie Menniti

Connie Menniti, 1945-2018, graduated from Indiana University of PA in 1968 with a BS in Art Education. She was a recognized artist in the Sewickley area where she lived for over forty years. She was a student and patron of Sweetwater throughout her years in our community. The Party's Over was donated to Sweetwater's Permanent Collection by Connie's loving brother and sister-in-law, Janet and Jim Gearing, from her estate in 2018.
