Abrahamson named Artist of the Month

The Newnan Times-Herald

The Newnan-Coweta Art Association selected Yvette Abrahamson as its Artist of the Month for December.

Abrahamson’s art will be featured in the City Manager’s Office at City Hall until Dec. 31, 2019.

Each month, a local artist is chosen as Artist of the Month to give them the opportunity to have their work shown in City Hall and for a chance for the city to support the arts.

Abrahamson was born in Columbus, Ohio and has lived in Georgia for 23 years. She started painting, drawing and photography at a young age. After a career in advertising, Abrahamson became a graphic design artist.

She joined the Newnan-Coweta Art Association and started painting classes on and off in 2014.

The Newnan-Coweta Art Association’s general meetings are held the third Thursday of each month from August through May at the Harriet Alexander Art Center on Hospital Road at 7:00 p.m. An art demonstration is presented each month. The meetings are open to visitors and to new members.
