60 Seconds With Jenny Jones

Jenny Jones, owner/director, Corner Arts Gallery.

How long have you been running the Corner Arts Gallery?

I opened up here four years ago following my retirement from Newnan Utilities after 27 years. I have to say that it’s been so much fun meeting all sorts of new and wonderful people.

What was the reason you decided to open up in downtown Newnan rather than anywhere else?

I suppose it’s because I love art and I like to support the local artists so I thought it would be a good thing for Newnan and all of the local artists. I feel that God has got me here for a reason and He keeps me going.

What are you the most proud of since opening the shop?

I’d have to say the artists that are here that are involved that have helped support me. We are all in this together. It’s not just for me and it’s certainly not for money because I’m not making any money!

What is the biggest misconception about the Gallery?

I think that some people walk by and think, “Oh, it’s just an art gallery and not a gift shop.” It’s all local art work. We have a variety of classes with several different teachers so in many ways, it’s like a teaching gallery. We’re currently trying to build our classes up and I welcome everyone. I always say “for ages 4 years old to 104 years old.”
