Martin Pate To Address February Meeting of NCAA
     Coweta artist Martin Pate has been in the news so much recently that it would take too long to even summarize his recent achievements, so we shall look immediately at 
the latest of these -- his upcoming address to the Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) next month on February 21 at 7:30 PM, which has just been announced in the January issue of the NCAA Newsletter.  Information on NCAA is available on their website  Below is the info the newsletter provides about Pate and his art.  Additional info is available on his website  
     Martin Pate graduated from Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida in 1981. His figurative works won acclaim in the Ringling and Sarasota area by such notables as Thornton Utz who declared a life drawing by Martin as the best work in the 1981 student show. His love of figurative works has led to many portrait commissions over the last 26 years by clients throughout the Southeast. Recent portraits of South Carolina Governor Jim Hodges children hung prominently in the Columbia, SC mansion during his term.
Martin's ability to paint people has also led to more than 15 years of commissions by the National Park Service.
     Paintings of Native Americans, Civil War battles, The Battle of the Little Bighorn and many others have been used for educational purposes in books, posters and CD ROMs.
     Local gallery affiliations include Panoply's Flint Gallery in downtown Newnan and The Dogwood Gallery near Tyrone, GA.
     Martin lives with his wife in Newnan. He has a son majoring in computer animation at Ringling and a daughter majoring in architecture at Clemson University.
