Baton Rouge Gallery, Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge Gallery, Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge Gallery is a multi-media art gallery. It is one of the United States' oldest artist co-ops and an important aspect of Baton Rouge's arts community.

The Baton Rouge Gallery was founded in 1965 when eight artists formed a gallery to showcase not only their own work but also that of other local artists. The original eight were reflected in the gallery's original name, The Unit 8 Gallery. The gallery gained incorporation in 1966, having grown to include twelve artists, and became known as Baton Rouge Gallery.

Until a brief closing in April 1994 due to a controversy over an artist's work, the gallery was the nation's oldest professionally run artist co-op and still remains one of the longest-running.
