Newnan Coweta Art Association to Recognize Scholarship Winners at Reception

Awards Ceremony, Reception, 40th Birthday Celebration Slated for June 18

Each year the Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) awards three scholarships to local high school seniors who plan to pursue the arts in college. This year two of the winners are from Northgate High School and one hails from Newnan High.
Katherine Harkleroad and Leah Woodall, both of Northgate High School , along with Janelle Hines of Newnan High, are the 2008 NCAA Scholarship recipients. These young artists now have their work on display at The Centre for the Performing & Visual Arts in Newnan, as part of the NCAA's third annual juried member exhibit. The Program is supported in part by the Grassroots Arts Program of the Georgia Council for the Arts through appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly and in partnership with Arts Clayton.
Though all three received the scholarship during Honors night at their respective schools, the Newnan Coweta Art Association plans to publicly recognize each student and her artwork during the opening reception and awards ceremony on June 18, from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Centre. The public is invited to attend. Hors d'oeuvres will be served. There is no charge for admission or parking.
Incorporated on June 18, 1968, the Newnan Coweta Art Association also plans to celebrate its 40th birthday as part of opening reception festivities!
The Newnan Coweta Art Association 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; to furnish the auspices for the display of such works in Coweta County and elsewhere; and to foster education and instruction in the creation and appreciation of works of art.
