Newnan-Coweta Art Association Kicks Off 2008 Exhibits

First Opening Reception of Year Thursday night in Newnan

The Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) will launch their inaugural exhibit of the New Year this Thursday, January 10, at 7:30 p.m., at Espresso Lane in downtown Newnan. The quaint coffee shop is also the Association's official gallery.
"A Brand New Year of Art" is the aptly named theme of the January show. The opening reception is free, and the public is invited to attend.
The New Year brings several changes to the show. NCAA Espresso Lane Gallery Coordinators Dixie Kraft and Janice Shumaker explain, "In addition to our Best in Show and Merchant's Choice Awards, we have added a Second Place ribbon and an award of $25."
There is also a People's Choice award. The artwork receiving the most votes from patrons wins. The winning piece is exhibited for an additional month on a separate wall designated for this award.
Kraft and Shumaker also announced that the duration of each exhibit has been extended to six weeks or slightly longer. In 2008, there will be eight exhibits instead of 12, allowing participating artists more time between exhibits to produce new works.
Planned themes for 2008 NCAA Espresso Lane shows are:  Always In My Heart/February;  Shades Of Spring/March;  Blooming Art/May;  Vacations Of Imagination/July;  Feeling Fallish/August;  Days Growing Short/October;  What a Year We Have Had/November.  Many of these displays also include the option for "Artist's Choice" which means any other off-theme work may be entered.
The Newnan-Coweta Art Association was incorporated June 18, 1968.  Today it is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to encourage and aid artists to produce original works of art of every type and character, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, ceramics, wood craft, drawing and metal crafts; furnish the auspices for the display of such works in Coweta County and elsewhere; foster education and instruction in the creation and appreciation of works of art. The association supports the arts in Coweta schools through annual donations and scholarships to high school students pursuing the arts in college. The Newnan-Coweta Art Association can be found online at www.Newcaa.com.
