Thought-Provokers: Buckhead

Atlanta has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Buckhead that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Katlynn Finkel

I honestly can’t remember ever not being pulled towards the more creative side of life. From a young age I have always been that crafty, fidgety, can’t-sit-still-need-something-to-do-always-so-you-figure-out-how-to-make-anything type and I guess I just never really grew out of it… Read more>>

Kate Lee

We struggled with infertility for a few years and I swore I would get a nice camera and take millions of pictures if I was ever lucky enough to be a mommy. Once my daughter was born, I couldn’t stop taking her picture. Read more>>

Keyondra Lockett

I started as one of the five members of 2x Stellar Award nominated group Zie’l, and continued on my journey as a writer. I’ve had the pleasure of writing a top 15 Billboard song, “State of Emergency”, for Zie’l (Pronounced Zy’el 2014). Read more>>

Gabrielle D’Auria

I started WellScene ATL to connect Atlanta’s wellness community and empower women to live their best lives. Our first event will be a women’s wellness conference on November 11, 2018 at Upstairs Atlanta. It will be a full day of wellness topics with thought provoking speakers, healthy eats, and wellness treats! Read more>>

Karina Keri-Matuszak

I spent my younger life creating art and went to art school in London for a while. I thought I was a good realistic artist but in school I kept getting Cs. We had an abstract project and I hated abstract art. I drank wine before I did the project and I got an A. Read more>>\


I’ve been working as a commercial illustrator since 2004 and in the gallery world since 2011. In illustration I’m primarily in the editorial market doing images for magazines and newspapers. But it’s the gallery work that really tickles my fancy. Read more>>

Christine Lashley

As a contemporary impressionist painter and lifelong nature enthusiast, Christine Lashley gathers most of her ideas by painting outdoors. The art she creates on location or in the studio is about time spent in nature and the beauty of a moment held in memory. Read more>>

Sandra Attales

Art and Design have always been addictive – I can’t get enough. I am uniquely an American conceptual artist…I’m not trying to be predictable, I never ran off to New York, I am an Artist, a Designer and Curator living in Islamorada Fl. and it’s is pretty awesome. Read more>>

Avery Lynn Ward

I had always been enthralled by cameras, art, and color ever since I can remember, but I guess I can say that my “official” photography journey began in high school. I began taking photos of friends and family and quickly found how much I loved capturing just a tiny piece of the beauty that my Creator has abundantly bestowed upon this earth. Read more>>
