It is the first educational institution established for Free Methodists in North America. Roberts Wesleyan College and their Art Department are being honored with the NYSATA Special Citation University Award for generously donating their exquisite Davison Gallery for Region 2 student art exhibitions for the past several years.

Dr. Susan Lane has wanted to be an art teacher since she was in kindergarten. After being the first person to graduate from SUNY Oneonta’s 3-1 Art Education program, she began her 30-year career at Whitney Point Middle School. After earning an M.S. in education from Elmira College, she continued her career teaching PK-12 art at Indian River Central School District and Clyde-Savannah Central School District (CSCSD). With her passion for art and technology, Susan developed and taught a media arts program that included: computer art, graphic design, film, 3-D rendering, animation, and game design.
