Sanders contributes to 2 GSU art collections
Her work, another she owns add to namesake department
092813 FOY SANDERS 01
Artist and patron Betty Foy Sanders, left, and family friend Rob Davidson talk Saturday about the history of two paintings being donated to collections at Georgia Southern University.
Behind her, the dancing Cherokee boy that Betty Foy Sanders painted about 40 years ago appeared to be in constant motion, as was she, during Saturday's unveiling. Sanders, 87, sat in a wheelchair but explained that this was her first time using it, at a doctor's insistence, for a public ceremony that might have kept her on her feet. In front of faculty of the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art, surrounded by the collection that also bears her name, she used a strong voice and active hands to talk about her continuing contributions, direct and indirect, to art at Georgia Southern University.
