Thought-Provokers: Midtown

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 Midtown that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Paul Conroy

I consider myself very lucky to have fallen into the world of theatre. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I joined the drama club and started performing in shows, and it was really in college that I became completely immersed in the art form. Read more>>

Dyana Nematalla

At seventeen, I graduated high school and knew exactly what I wanted to do. My parents were hoping I would go to college, but that was something I didn’t want at the time. I told them I wanted to try and work at a local salon for the summer to see if it’s something I would like doing eventually. Read more>>

Christina Collandra

My love for art starts way back in childhood. I drew on everything and for every reason. My favorite and earliest memory of using art as an emotional release is from a time in 1st grade when I was put in time-out on the sidewalk outside my classroom. Read more>>

Clarke Chadwell and Tommy Faust

Clarke, Dallas and I all met at the University of Alabama in the Fall of 2010. Out of 40 some thousand students, Dallas happened to be in my small orientation group of 10 or so who went around introducing themselves. He goofily spoke of his love for playing the drums. Read more>>

Brandy Jenkins

After putting all of the pieces together in this puzzle, Goodie & Grace gift box company was born. With the new addition of our second child less than a month ago our little growing family couldn’t be more ecstatic about the path we’ve created. Read more>>

Danish Dharani, Aman Bhojani and Wahaj Imam

Chromalogue began a year after the team completed college and began working. We all knew we wanted to pursue something outside of our respective fields- something that would let us express our artistic abilities outside of our professional lives. Read more>>

Kyle Ference

I am a practicing family law attorney by day, and I moved from north Georgia to Atlanta in April 2017 to start work at a law firm here. At that time, the thought of taking up photography had never even crossed my mind. Read more>>

Dylan Collard

I am a 2D Animator and Visual FX artist, proficient in 3D modelling and rigging. I am currently a Senior in Animation at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. Read more>>

Henri Hollis

As a self-taught professional photographer, I have no ego about my skills. I always feel like there’s more to learn, and I’m constantly trying to learn more about how my camera works, how to create beautiful images and how to use software like Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop to create the best final product. Read more>>

Christina Foard

I sought career opportunities that would align my painting network with my employment, so I took positions in arts administration. I began by managing public programs at an art museum, and later I found my sweet spot directing an interdisciplinary Arts-In-Medicine program at an inner city hospital. Read more>>
