The Cottages at Stillwood to host an Artist Showcase

Gloria Perkins, a local painter and art instructor, will be featured in the first of many artist exhibitions at the Cottages at Stillwood on Thursday, July 17th from 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Her gallery will be installed at 59 Stillwood Circle, Newnan, Georgia 30265.

“I have been teaching oil painting for over two decades and my painting has evolved over this time to reflect my own style that I call classical realism with an impressionistic flair,” said Perkins, when asked about her craft. “I am excited to have been invited to be featured in the inaugural showcase being held at The Cottages at Stillwood. Teaching and sharing my art knowledge is not only rewarding, but is very energizing.”

“We chose Gloria because we felt that her floral paintings would be right at home and perfectly compliment to the cottage-style homes here,” said Sherry Stone Blackmon, REALTOR and Associate Broker with The ESG Group, Keller Williams Realty Connections, and organizer of this event. “Art brings walls to life, and it encourages homebuyers to visualize how they could use their space.”
