BRG'S ANNUAL ARTIST MEMBER GROUP EXHIBITION SPOTLIGHTS THE DIVERSITY OF ITS ROSTER OVER 40 YEARS

Baton Rouge Gallery (“BRG”) proudly invites you to experience it annual Artist Member Group Exhibition, on display now through November 27. The exhibition includes the work of 28 artists whose work is as diverse in media as it is in subject matter. It includes artists who joined the gallery in every decade since the gallery's opening, from the 1960s to just last year. 

This show is a part of P.3+BR: Notes Upriver, the capital region's official extension of the contemporary art biennial, Prospect.3 New Orleans, featuring art installations, exhibitions, film screenings and live events. Find out more about P.3+BR here.


A Word From BRG's Executive Director:


Baton Rouge Gallery has been a part of the cultural landscape of southern Louisiana for nearly fifty years. It has given local, regional and even national artists a platform to exhibit their work while also providing area residents and visitors a window into contemporary art. 

Every November, the gallery takes the opportunity to share the works of over a dozen of its artist members during its annual Artist Member Group Exhibition. This year, the exhibition (on display through November 27) includes the work of 28 artists and serves as a broad survey of the gallery’s current artist member roster. You’ll see as you make your way through gallery that the roster includes artists who work in a broad array of media, touch on a plethora of subject matter and present wildly different takes on contemporary art.

 

This is truly an exciting time for contemporary art in Louisiana’s capital city. From mural initiatives by The Museum of Public Art and The Walls projects to city-wide endeavors like P.3+BR (a satellite exhibition of Prospect 3 in New Orleans), there is more to see and experience in our city than ever before. We are proud to showcase the work of the 28 artists involved in this exhibition and hope the works not only drive you to learn more about the artists who call themselves members of this gallery, but compel you to dive further down the rabbit hole and experience all that Baton Rouge’s artistic offerings have to share with you.
