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.
The following seven artists have been added to the Baton Rouge Gallery roster: Katrina Andry, Danielle Burns, Leslie Elliottsmith, James Flynn, Sam Losavio, Hye Yeon Nam, and Mary Jane Parker.
The Baton Rouge Gallery has grown into one of the area’s premier contemporary arts centers with a mission to advance local & national contemporary artists and to engage Louisiana’s capital city through unique cultural programming.
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.
