Suzanne Caldwell is the Newnan Coweta Art Associations’ Artist of the Month for March, with her pastels on display at Newnan City Hall throughout the month.

Caldwell attended a workshop in Pastels given by Deborah Kidwell and fell in love with the medium.

She continues to take classes with Kidwell every week. Caldwell prefers painting from photos she has taken. Her favorite subjects are landscapes, birds and flowers. She also enjoys quilting, sewing and is an avid gardener.

Caldwell lives in Sharpsburg on a small farm with her husband, Jerry, and dachshund, Charley. She moved to Georgia in 1999 from West Dundee, Ill.

Caldwell is a member of the Newnan Coweta Art Association.

The group meets the third Thursday each month (September through May) at the Harriet Alexander Art Center on Hospital Road at 7 p.m. Visitors and new members are welcome. An art demonstration is presented each month.
