Southside Arts Agenda Continues Great Coverage of Coweta Scene
Installs New Page Viewer System
     The Southside Arts Agenda is an online news service covering the arts scenes in the Southside counties.  From its inception a few years ago it has done a commendable job of covering the Coweta arts scene, which is not easy because of all that it going on here. 
     The Editor's remarks at the beginning of the June 23 issue encourage everyone to see the NCAA Third Annual Juried Art Exhibit at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts of Coweta County.  This is now the last week, so anyone interested had better not delay!  In previous issues many pages have been devoted to this important exhibit. 
     Page 10 is devoted to the Grantville arts scene -- the left half of the page provides info on the Southern Country Gospel Music Sing coming up this Saturday at the Railroad Freight Depot.  The right half of the page is devoted to Grantville Day (most of which involves the arts) which will be held on the last weekend in September.
     The upper half of page 12 shows Trisha Adams, the NCAA Artist of the Month, standing in front of her paintings which are on display this month at the Newnan City Hall.  The bottom half of the page and all of the following page (13) are devoted to the Southern Writers Conference, which will transpire on July 5 at the Holiday Inn Express in Newnan.  This is very significant for being the very first writers conference ever to be held in Newnan.
     The current and future shows of the Legacy Theatre are featured on pages 16 and 17.  Although the theatre is located in Fayette County, it is regarded by Cowetans as part of the Coweta scene because the owners, Mark & Bethany Smith live in Newnan.  
     Several weeks ago a new viewing system (Issuu) was installed by Southside Arts Agenda, which is not easy to use at first but works after you get the hang of it
     Information on this important arts news service is available on its website
