 Anna Devasthali - Creative Director

Artlink is a place that found me when I needed it most. You can come get creative in so many different mediums and be yourself. Connecting with people and your passions is important to me.

 Ragaiey Ibarhim - Creative

ArtLink to me is a wonderful place that offers you that creative outlet in expressing yourself in various forms of art all while learning these new passions to discover within you. It’s a fun safe space to meet other friendly faces who can be positively influential in your life just as you may be in theirs. ~
My favorite free-time go to :)

What ArtLink is to me is a free creative space where anyone can come in and express themselves however they need with support and without judgement. For me it's been a place that has helped me not only grow as an artist, but as a person. I've been able to make a lot of connections and get more comfortable with myself and others. It's just a nice place to be.

 Corrine Bates - Creative

ArtLink is simply a place to come into without judgement and kickstart your creativity. I find peace here at Artlink and I hope all of Middle Tennessee/southern Kentucky soon will too!

Artlink to me means freedom of creativity, setting a strong foundation that builds creativity, insight, imagination, values and innovation. Most importantly, giving back to the community. As well as being able to share my own skills and creativity with others in a positive, diverse and supportive environment.

Maria Haycraft - Founder and Executive Director

ArtLink is a place where you can discover who you are in a creative way because we were all created on purpose with a purpose and ArtLink is a great place to start to explore that.

 Stephanie Belanger - President

When I met Maria, I was at a point in my life where I needed a purpose, a way to give back to the community that has supported me and belong somewhere. We met at ArtLink and the space alone made me feel happy, it was welcoming and fun. I knew right away this was the place I can feel good, help out and hopefully make a difference! ArtLink is definitely a great space to inspire your unique creativity and promote long-lasting camaraderie.

 Stefanie Robertson - Vice President

Art is life! And art is universal. I'm so fortunate to be working with a group of people who see the importance of art in our community and help provide the necessary creative outlet to those who may not otherwise find it. ArtLink truly embraces every facet of creativity which I believe is key to the human experience.

 Justin Aldred - Treasurer

The mission of Artlink is important to me, personally, because there are so many places in my life I need to be structured and rigid, and Artlink allows me to see more of my creativity and flow in a safe place where I feel accepted. I think having a place like this is a huge help to our mental, spiritual, and emotional health.

 Darrion Wiley-Hunt - Board Member

I love the way Artlink ignites creativity not only in the art scene, but also introducing new opportunities to all walks of life. The Artlink Studio, Volunteers, and staff give the most welcoming, inviting, and positive energy which is essential to creativity.
