Exhibit A

As Young Blood Boutique’s resident watercolorist, S. Patricia Patterson combines vintage snapshots with motifs from design history—a vibrating chevron, a David Hicks hexagon, a tribal eye tapestry—to portray children from the past embroiled in sociopolitical controversies of the current day.

At Get This! Gallery, Ben “Bean” Worley’s digital and video works show that not all art should hang in a frame. The trailblazer’s trippy, color-popped combos of music, patterns and film footage were enough to beguile local rockers The Black Lips, who once performed in front of one of his projections. Westside, @getthisgallery

Eva Magill-Oliver’s three years in Paris have had tremendous influence on her work at Gregg Irby Fine Art. The tiny watercolor, ink and pencil drawings, cut up and reassembled into romantic landscapes and whimsical collages of forest fauna, can be pricey, but her giclĂ©e prints sell as low as $60. Buckhead, @greggirbyart

Though she’s still a senior at Georgia State University, Julia Burns has been repped by Marietta’s dk Gallery for three years. Her dynamic clay sculptures—which follow in the footsteps of her mother, acclaimed equine artist Susan Easton Burns—often depict neighing horses and make very cool conversation pieces. Marietta, @dkgallery

See Ashley Anderson’s Shinobi Marilyn series at Emily Amy Gallery before the doors close for good on March 31. The bearded artist reimagines retro computer graphics as complex art compilations, and pixelates iconographic forms—from a Nintendo handgun to the bombshell’s famous mug. Westside, @emilyamygallery

Wyatt Graff’s modernist enamel spatters on Plexiglas have garnered feverish interest from museums and serious collectors—think Coke execs and international consulting firms. The SCAD-Atlanta head golf coach also recently completed a commission for Table 1280. Buy his beauties at KAI LIN ART. Buckhead, @kailinart

Alex Brewer (aka HENSE) has been tagging the public realm for 20 years. The graffiti artist’s colorful sprays have appeared in enough ATL neighborhoods to earn him “all-city status,” plus mural commissions (like the one on South Broad Street) from the powers that be. Now you can source his mixed-media works on paper and wood at Sandler Hudson Gallery. Westside, @sandlerhudson

University of Georgia-grad Michelle Knox’s nostalgic new series of manipulated, sepia-toned photographs are already reaping huge responses at Huff Harrington Fine Art. And there’s no doubt as to why: The choosy gallerists herald her work as “highly innovative, creative and outside-the-box.” Buckhead, @huffharrington
