Valdosta - A new arts center has been dedicated to the memory of a long-time Lowndes County resident.

The Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts officially opened last night. Turner was a strong supporter of the arts who died of cancer.

More than 100 people turned out to help celebrate the event, including Governor Sonny Perdue, who served in the senate with Turner's husband.

"I know Annette was always an admirer and worker in the arts and dedicating this center to her allows her love and graciousness to live on," said Perdue.

The new 17,000 square foot arts center is located on Patterson Street in the former First State Bank and Trust.
