Two of my favorite Nola creatives & hustlers, Ali McNally + Chris Scheurich have a brand new project titled $PAWN$. Electronic soul + synth melodies and enigmatic...

Hayley Gaberlavage — Southern Vice

<p>One of my favorite artists and pal <a target="_blank" href="http://www.hayleygaberlavage.com" rel="noopener noreferrer">Hayley Gaberlavage</a> is having an exhibition showcasing her latest work this coming Saturday evening. I have been a huge fan of her work for years and I truly believe her latest pieces are her best yet.</p>

Skylar Fein

<p style="margin-right: 0px;">It's been nearly 7 years since The New Orleans Museum of Art hosted a one man show featuring the work of artist <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jonathanferraragallery.com/artists/skylar-fein" rel="noopener noreferrer">Skylar Fein</a>. I can admit, even years later, that show was one of the best and most memorable events I'd ever been to in the city to date. </p>

Alys Arden

<p>Native New Orleanian novelist and author of the wildly popular "The Casquette Girls", Alys Arden, recently took time out to walk around her favorite part of the city, chat about her work, and pose for a few photos along the way. </p>

Rebecca Rebouche’s Dreamsicle

<p style="margin-right: 0px;">"Hustle is the dark horse of creativity, the close cousin of grit and tenacity. Without the hustle, drive, and complete devotion to making things happen, you are average."</p><p style="margin-right: 0px;">Artist and native New Orleanian <a target="_blank" href="http://rebeccarebouche.com" rel="noopener noreferrer">Rebecca Rebouche's</a> quote above could not be anymore honest and inspiring. The moment I discovered this quote on the back of issue #2 of the magazine <a target="_blank" href="https://thegreatdiscontent.com/interview/rebecca-rebouche" rel="noopener noreferrer">The Great Discontent</a>, I was instantly reminded of why being a creative person is my crash course destiny.</p>

Abby Diamond

<p>I'm pretty sure the first time I heard <a target="_blank" href="http://www.abbydiamondmusic.com" rel="noopener noreferrer">Abby Diamond</a> sing was from a late night Facebook session. Of course, if I remember correctly.</p>

Olesya Robison

<p>It's nearly 6,400 miles from Karsno, Russia to New Orleans, LA. New Orleans based contemporary painter/designer <a target="_blank" href="http://www.olyrobison.com/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Olesya Robison</a> could not be more at home. After successful corporate creative pit-stops, Olesya has officially come home Nola to live, create, and share her imagination and vision.</p>


<p>Enigmatic, clever, and chameleon-like rapper <a target="_blank" href="http://boyfriend69.com/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Boyfriend</a>, couldn't be any more fascinating. It's been over a year since she's dropped her extremely slick and well produced video "Yo Tengo Mucho Swag", and Boyfriend has been uploading genre blasting videos and tracks on the regular. Her flow is as diverse as each track and it's lyrics. All tracks and videos are produced by a small team of immensely creative folks and it shows.</p>

Martin Benson

<p>It was early and breezy Monday morning as I walked around the corner to meet up with artist <a target="_blank" href="http://www.martinlbenson.com/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Martin Benson</a> at his uptown studio. Resting comfortably on his stoop enjoying some tea, Martin and I quickly dove right in to the importance of art in life especially in New Orleans.</p>

The Martine Chaisson Gallery

<p style="margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px">I would like to believe that I'm a fan of art. I can be honest with you all and say that my knowledge of fine art needs a bit of touch up work since I graduated from college.The world of contemporary art has amassed a huge following, and a trend in which I want to grab a firm hold.</p>
