Southside Artists Mourn The Passing of Barbara Scruggs
Barbara Scruggs was not only a good artist but also a good organizer. She strongly supported the Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) which she served in various capacities including being its delegate to the the Newnan-Coweta Arts Council, where she served for a time as Secretary. She was also a strong advocate of co-operation among the various Southside art associations for which reason she was very active in the Southern Crescent Alliance of Visual Artists, serving twice as its President (in 2004 and 2007). Although what happened was tragic, it is perhaps fitting that she died "with her boots on" while helping to organize the reception for the Second Annual Juried Exhibit of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association last week at the Centre for Perforning and Visual Arts of Coweta County. Barbara will be missed; her passing is a grievous loss for the Coweta and Southside arts scene.
