Meet Jenny Jones, Newnan's Artist of the Month

Jenny is a native of Newnan and Coweta County and a Newnan High School graduate. She is an active member of the First Baptist Church of Newnan, the Newnan Coweta Art Association, and has been employed with Newnan Utilities for 26 years and has recently retired.  She has two daughters, Aimee and Sarah.

Needing a hobby in 1999, Jenny began with stenciling and wall murals in her own home.  Her mother, being a craft painter, invited her to visit a craft painting class with her.  Soon after, her desire to paint grew and she began to buy woodwork, windows, glass objects, and any other materials using glass paint and acrylics. Her mother invited her to an oil painting class in 2000.  She is now teaching two classes which she took after Jean Westbrook stepped down from teaching. 

Jenny's work has been displayed at the Georgia State Solicitors office, Coweta County Tax building, Newnan-Coweta Library, The First Baptist Church of Newnan, Cook Office Equipment, City of Newnan City Hall, and Espresso Lane.  She participated in painting the murals at First Baptist Church of Newnan on the children's floor and on the wall in her Sunday school class. She has participated in the City of Newnan Market Day, the NCAA Christmas Market the NCAA Annual Spring Courthouse Show, the City of Newnan Art Walk, Powers Crossroads, Carnegie Library and other NCAA art shows. She takes commissions for oil paintings, portraits, murals, and crafts, including woodwork, metal, glass, and windows.

Jenny's favorite subjects to paint are landscapes with a lot of color, the ocean, and buildings, especially lighthouses. Painting is very relaxing to her.  With very much encouragement from her family, friends, and my students she plans to continue her love of painting for many years to come.

Jenny Jones is a member of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association. NCAA meets the third Thursday of each month (from September through May) at the Harriet Alexander Art Center on Hospital Road at 7:00 p.m. Visitors and new members are welcome. An art demonstration is presented each month. Come and join the fun.
