Artists will be showing their work at downtown businesses as the Spring Art Walk returns.

The Spring Art Walk, sponsored by Main Street Newnan, will be March 29 from 5-9 p.m. “We have probably the largest art walk we have ever had,” said Abigail Strickland, special events coordinator for the city of Newnan.

At the time of the Newnan Downtown Development Authority meeting on March 13, there were 36 participating businesses and more than 50 artists. Students from area high schools will be creating chalk art during the event.

“The Art Walk Event is our celebration of local art and is hosted twice a year in
downtown Newnan,” Strickland said – a time when art comes to life on downtown’s sidewalks.

Some local businesses will serve complimentary tastings and hors d’oeuvres and have specials and promotions throughout the evening.

Art styles and mediums will include oil on canvas, engraving, pottery, photography, jewelry making, fiber arts, performing arts and acrylics. 

Participating businesses include 15 Perry Street, Blue Fern Merchant, Blue Moon
Boutique, Carnegie Library, Corner Arts Gallery, Downtown Olive & Kitchen Supply
