Artist of the Month
Each month a local artist is named Artist of the Month, in which the City has collaborated with the Newnan-Coweta Art Association and local art galleries on this project.
The collaboration gives local artists the opportunity to display their work in City Hall and the chance for the City to support the arts.
The Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) meets the third Thursday of each month from September through May at the Harriet Alexander Art Center located at 31 Hospital Road, Newnan, GA at 7 p.m. The meetings are open to anyone wishing to further the arts in the Coweta and Fayette areas.
Artist of the Month
Angelo T. Robinson
Angelo T. Robinson is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works out of Senoia, GA. A self-taught artist, he joined the U.S. Navy in 1992, where he served ten years active duty and four years in the Naval Reserve as a Seabee.
Traveling to locales such as Italy, Spain, Turkey, Greece, Africa, France, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Egypt, the Virgin Islands, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates greatly influenced Angelo's approach to art. The vibrancy, diverse richness and simple beauty of the cultures he experienced are shown throughout his work.
His work exudes a level spiritually and an organic connection with the human condition. This reflects his experiences growing up as the son and grandson of preachers. Angelo's creations invite the viewer to participate in a physical, mental or spiritual dialogue with what they experience. Deep vibrant abstracts, joyous colorful mixed-media portraits, and majestic sports pieces are brought to life using vivid colors and bold compositions.
The artist has participated in juried group shows such as Art San Diego Contemporary Art Fair, as well as solo shows in Charleston, SC; Burlington, NC; San Bruno, CA: and many cities across his home state of Georgia. Angelo received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Marketing from Liberty University. Angelo continues to participate in select exhibitions as well as producing his own shows each year. He creates commissioned pieces for residential and corporate clients.
