"As a shy creative child, resistant to pressure and frustrated by conformity, art gave me a way to express a suppressed energy with passion. It gave me a focus and a long-term emotional equilibrium."


- Powerful words from a Friend of Backstreet who lives in Scotland, Peter Tudhope, Newnan ArtRez' first artist in residence.
