Each month - excluding January and November - is kicked off with a 'First Wednesday’ Opening Reception (6- 9 p.m.), introducing the latest exciting work by local and regional artists to local audiences and visitors. For more than 50 years, Baton Rouge Gallery has been helping those in and around Louisiana’s capital city find the art that speaks to them and follow the artists that they love. With a roster of more than 60 of the region’s best emerging and established visual artists, nearly every monthly exhibition the gallery hosts gives visitors a unique and diverse look at local art of all different media.

Baton Rouge Gallery's mission is to advance local & national contemporary artists, while engaging Louisiana's capital city through unique cultural programming.
Baton Rouge Gallery, a non-profit contemporary art gallery, is located in BREC's historic City Park. One of America's oldest professional artist cooperatives, the gallery offers contemporary art exhibitions and unique cultural programming. BRG offers new contemporary art exhibitions on a monthly basis featuring professional local and (occasionally) national artists with opening receptions on the first Wednesday of each month. BRG also offers a wealth of cultural programming that brings visitors face-to-face with contemporary art across disciplines, including film, poetry, dance, music and more. Art exhibitions at BRG typically feature current works of its artist members (except during the months of January and April, when it hosts special juried exhibitions). In any given exhibition, you might see the work of photographers, painters, sculptors, stained-glass artists, printmakers, ceramicists, multi-media and/or installation artists.
We'll work with your schedule.
