Ready… Set… June 18 RECEPTION!

After much preparation, the Newnan Coweta Art Association (NCAA) is ready to celebrate a big evening at Newnan’s Centre for the Visual and Performing Arts next Wednesday night, June 18. A full schedule of events is planned including:

The reception and awards ceremony for NCAA’s third annual juried exhibit. One work will win “Best of Show” and two will receive “Merit Awards.”
Recognition of 2008 NCAA scholarship winners including a special display of their artwork.
A 40th birthday celebration for NCAA which was incorporated on June 18, 1968.
Special acknowledgement of original, founding members of the association.

The community is invited to attend the reception and participate in the festivities. It will be a culturally enriching night of fine art, live music, artists, and hors d'oeuvres. There is no charge for admission or parking. The Program is supported in part by the Grassroots Arts Program of the Georgia Council for the Arts through appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly and in partnership with Arts Clayton.

The Newnan Coweta Art Association 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.
