Artist of the Month

Each month a local artist is named as Artist of the Month, in which the City has collaborated with the Newnan-Coweta Art Association and local art galleries on this project.

The collaboration gives local artist the opportunity to display their work in City Hall and the chance for the City to support the arts.

The Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) meets the third Thursday of each month from September through May at the Harriet Alexander Art Center located at 31 Hospital Road, Newnan, GA at 7 p.m. The meetings are open to anyone wishing to further the arts in the Coweta and Fayette areas.

About Jenny Jones

After needing a hobby in 1996, Jenny began stenciling and painting wall murals in her home. That interest grew, when her mother, a craft painter invited her to visit craft and oil painting classes a year later with artists Marge Groth and Jean Westbrook. Jenny's desire to paint continued to grow and she began buying woodwork, windows, glass objects, and any other materials using glass paint and acrylics.

Jenny's favorite subjects to paint are landscapes, the ocean, and buildings - especially lighthouses.

"Painting is very relaxing to me and I encourage others to paint," said Jenny. "With much encouragement from my family, friends, and my students I plan to continue my love of painting for many years to come."

After retiring from Newnan Utilities, Jenny opened a local artist gallery, Corner Arts Gallery, Studio & Gift Shop located on the square in downtown Newnan. The gallery and studio offer many different types of artwork created by over 35 local artists.

Over the years, Jenny has hosted the Labor Day Arts & Crafts Festival around the Newnan Square. She is also a member of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association.
