Newnan Carnegie Library and the Newnan-Coweta Art Association have partnered to present a variety of art for the historic building this summer. 

The Newnan-Coweta Art Association has rotating exhibits in the Carnegie. There is an art gallery on the second level.

“Our program and meeting room attendees really enjoy strolling through the art gallery. The Newnan-Coweta Art Association has provided us with a wonderful variety of paintings and sculptures,” said Amy Mapel, Carnegie director.

The NCAA artists being displayed in the main gallery will include: Sheri Anderson, Martin Pate, Ellen Guillory, Cecil Cornwell, Rusty Sharp, Sandy Holcomb, Richard Doss, Susan Boehms-Harris, Silvia Feenaghty, Cheryl Vickers, Corrine Galla, Pam Giles, Suzanne Caldwell, Faye Holzaepfel, Ken Hamilton, Kem Kowa,  Helen Hayes, Debbie McNeil, R.L. Hughey, Eunice Nichols, Rebecca Wayne, Andrienne Setzer, Sandra Carter, Ellie Farrington and Jenny Jones.

Newnan Coweta Art Association meets the third Thursday each month, from 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 serve the public with a non-circulating reading room, a children’s area, and an art gallery. It seeks to be an integral part of the community by offering print and electronic materials.

The Carnegie was funded by the General Fund and partly by 2007 Special Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST). The Carnegie’s cost to be renovated was more than $1.5 million dollars to the city.
