Newnan has recently established an Artist-in-Residence program and has restored Gray cottage in historic downtown for the creative guests to reside while participating in the program. This gives the artist a place to live within the community. This program gives the artist a change in environment and an opportunity to get to know a new town . It offers inspiration to the artist, allowing them to create new works in a new surrounding, while benefiting the community.
Fine Lines would like to introduce
our viewers to Peter Tudhope, Newnan's first artist-in-residence. Peter is from Scotland and arrived in September. His works are generally Scottish and Irish landscapes created in oil on canvas. In addition, Peter works in charcoal and pastel. While visiting Newnan, he has contributed to the community with several workshops and demos for students and the public. Peter's works are available for viewing and for sale at Fine Lines Gallery. He has created beautiful works of local architecture and landscapes alike. Come by and see us, we would love to introduce you to Peter's art!
