Kristina L. Adams Named Newnan City Hall Artist for the month of February

Kristina L. Adams is named Newnan-Coweta Art Association’s Artist of the Month for the month of February. Her work will be displayed at Newnan City Hall for the month of February.

Kris is a displaying member of the Georgia Watercolor Society and a member of the Newnan Coweta Arts Association. Kris’s paintings are in private and public collections across the United States, Canada and Japan. This past fall she had two paintings chosen for the Georgia national fair in Perry Georgia. Her paintings are full of bright bold colors from abstract to realism. Using large brushes and lots of water her paintings are pretty loose. She says art doesn't always have to be serious; it just needs to be fun. She works in a series, and is best known for two larger than life women in swimsuits; fondly know as Miss Bea & Stella. Other series have been of fish, turtles, landscapes, over sized fruits, vegetables, lighthouses, sofas and animals.

You may recognize Kris from the Watercolor by Kristina show that she did on Newnan Utilities last year. Her work can be seen around town at Andre’s off the Square, Espresso Lane, Ten East Washington, and the Weber Eye clinic. She displays at the annual NCAA spring show on the square and at the annual NCAA Christmas show in November at the Rail Road depot in down town Newnan.

Kristina is a member of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association. NCAA meets the third Thursday each month (from September through May) at the Harriet Alexander Art Center on Hospital Road at 7:00 p.m. visitors and new members are welcome.
