The Newnan Coweta Art Association selects Sheri Anderson as its featured Artist of the Month for August. Anderson's art will be featured in the City Manager's Office at City Hall until August 30.

About Sheri Anderson
Sheri is a resident of Newnan. She was born in Oklahoma and is a longtime resident of Georgia and has over 45 years of experience in painting. She is primarily a self-taught artist with an extensive background in oils, watercolor and acrylic mediums.

Sherri is a founding member of the Fayette Society of Fine Art and has served as an officer on the board for nearly twenty-five years since it was established.

As a member of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association, she is most grateful to the City of Newnan for their support of the visual arts. She enjoys painting on Tuesdays at the Harriet Alexander Art Center on Hospital Road along with her peers. The public is always welcomed.

Sheri has taught private lessons in her studio at home and has given group lessons in class at the Arts Clayton Gallery in Jonesboro, Georgia. Her extensive travels to Hawaii and across the United States have provided her with ample inspiration for her ocean scenes, sea life, landscapes, lighthouses, wild animals and flowers. Her paintings can be found in private collections across the country.
