Carnegie, Art Association updates art display

Newnan Carnegie Library and Newnan-Coweta Art Association partnered to present a variety of art for the grand opening of the building, and the art association has continued the display with rotating exhibits.

There is an art gallery on the second level, and the display has been freshened for the spring. “Our program and meeting room attendees really enjoy strolling through the art gallery. The Newnan-Coweta Art Association has once again provided us with a wonderful variety of paintings,” said Amy Mapel, Carnegie director. The NCAA artists being displayed for spring 2014 are: Ellen Guilloury, Martin Pate, Sheri Anderson, Helen Hayes, Cecil Cornwell, Rusty Sharp, Suzanne Caldwell, Sandra Carter, Sandy Holcomb, Mary Ann Madsen, Barbara Kelly, Karen DeFelix, Ellie Farrington, Marc Stewart , Ken Hamilton, RL Hughey & Debbie McNeil, Faye Holzaepfel, Matthew Swab and Rebecca Wayne. NCAA meets the third Thursday each month, September through May, at the Harriet Alexander Art Center on Hospital Road at 7 p.m. An art demonstration is presented each month. Visitors and new members are welcome.

Restored by the City of Newnan, the Carnegie has brought back library type services in the downtown area. The bottom floor of the building serves as a reading room and the second floor as a meeting space.

Among its many offerings, the Carnegie brings popular magazines and newspapers, computer workstations and Wi-Fi access, a gallery for local exhibits, meeting rooms with warming kitchen and programs for adults and children. The Carnegie serves the public with a non-circulating reading room, children’s area, and an art gallery. It seeks to be an integral part of the community by offering print and electronic materials.
