Baton Rouge, LA (WAFB)- The Baton Rouge Gallery holds a special honor as one of the nation’s longest standing professional artist cooperatives. Now, seven new members proudly join the ranks, expanding the long list of Louisiana-based artists.

Annually, new artists apply for an artist membership which then their work is judged by a panel of ten current BRG artist members. One of the things that sets BRG apart from other similar galleries and museums is that it maintains its identity as an artist cooperative, meaning that only the artists have the authority to welcome new artists to join the gallery and only the artists have the ability to excuse an artist from the gallery.

Whether your membership is small or large, you, as a BRG member, can make all the difference.

Currently, the gallery boasts an artist member roster of more than 60 professional artists ranging in media including fiber, drawing, glass, sculpture, painting, and photography.
