October’s Artist of the Month exhibit features collective works from Farrago Gallery artists.

Participating in the exhibit are: Kim Ramey, Chris Hendrix, Carol Adams, and Sherry Cook.

Kim Ramey’s work has a pleasing dreamlike quality that draws in the viewer, and her techniques in mixed media are studied and thought out. Ramey’s current show, “Wanderings,” is on display at Farrago Gallery thru Oct. 23.

New to the local art community, Chris Hendrix builds her paintings and entices the art lover with strong texture and bursts of color. Her decorative works are bold and dramatic.

Resuming her art career after several years, Carol Adams’ figurative works show an expressive brush stroke and a sophisticated sense of color. Her works hang in collections in the surrounding area.

Known regionally for her whimsical creatures and exuberant lines, Sherry Cook’s style is admired by many.

Her themed works include images of mermaids, woodland creatures and fabulous folk art motifs.

Farrago Gallery is located in downtown Newnan.
