Newnan-Coweta Art Association Announces Spring Show

The Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) is pleased to announce its annual Spring Fine Art & Craft show. The upcoming exhibit will take place on Saturday, April 19, 2008, from 10:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., around the historic Courthouse Square in downtown Newnan. Traditionally, the NCAA hosts its show in conjunction with the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society’s Tour of Homes, also slated for the April 19-20 weekend.

A variety of fine art and crafts including watercolor, oil, acrylic, drawing/sketching including pen/pencil/ink, charcoal and pastels, mixed media, sculpture including pottery and woodworking, photography and more, will be on display. “Reflections of Coweta County,” a special themed exhibit, is also planned for the one-day event. Nearly 40 artists from all over Atlanta’s southern crescent are expected to exhibit. Cash awards and ribbons will be awarded to artists and crafters in all media categories.

Admission and parking for this family-friendly event are free. The public is invited to enjoy an artistic day in Newnan’s charming downtown area.

The NCAA celebrates its 40th birthday this year! The Newnan-Coweta Art Association was incorporated June 18, 1968.

Today, it is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to encourage and aid artists to produce original works of art of every type and character, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, ceramics, wood craft, drawing and metal crafts; to furnish the auspices for the display of such works in Coweta County and elsewhere; and to foster education and instruction in the creation and appreciation of works of art.

The Association supports the arts in Coweta schools through annual donations and scholarships to high school students pursuing the arts in college. The Newnan-Coweta Art Association can be found online at
