WHO ARE WE?
(n)-the journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life.
The Art of Metanoia is a creative space for mindful individuals exploring their inner + outer worlds. We strive to not only push, but also redefine the limitations of society. We celebrate today's visionaries, explorers, and progressive believers of change by curating events that showcase artists from all realms of talent.
This event was created to provide local young artists with a space to display their art in any way, shape, or form. This is the rebirth of the typical “art gallery”, we are changing the perspective of what a normal gallery is. Each event is hand crafted for every individual to experience a journey towards changing one’s mind, heart, self, or way of life, with the goal of inspiring the community as a whole.
meet our founder, auriel!
A young mindful individual and college student, Auriel Oates, founded The Art of Metanoia in February 2016. Although she was born in Oahu, Hawaii, she currently resides in Atlanta, Ga and attends Georgia State University. She is constantly on a journey to inspire and be inspired while engaging in different methods of creation. Auriel is a curator, writer and adventurer. Her passion for learning about others leads her towards constant exploration and practicing the art of growth as much as possible.
Like most of her peers, she is on the journey to find her place in the world and make an impact in an area that means so much to her, art. By working on different projects with close friends, she discovered her passion for the creative mind, especially amongst young people in the city of Atlanta. Auriel's goal is to build a platform to showcase art from all realms of talent including artists of all ages. She also wants to create a platform to inspire others in the midst of inspiring herself, all while documenting her journey and the journey's of others.
