Do you enjoy entering into public spaces and seeing locally created artwork on the walls? Is supporting the development/education of emerging, as well as established, local artists important to you?

The mission of the Art Guild of Louisiana is to promote visual art and artists and to increase public appreciation and awareness by providing education and exhibition opportunities to artists of all proficiency levels

As the oldest continuously operating art organization in Louisiana – founded in 1953 – the Art Guild of Louisiana is an integral thread in the fabric of the art community in Baton Rouge. Contributions from art supporters like yourself ensure that we will continue to be here, helping to meet the needs of future generations of artists.

In the past year we have sponsored more than a dozen exhibitions in public venues, including the juried National River Road Show at the Louisiana State Archives Gallery; awarded almost $6,000 in cash and prizes; hosted over twenty workshops in various mediums, by local and nationally recognized artists/instructors.

Donations of any amount are welcome, whether it is a one time donation; monthly contributions or a donation in the name of a friend or family member. With your important and generous contribution we can continue to provide support to local artists by continuing education opportunities and by showcasing their talent in our community spaces.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your donation is tax deductible, to the extent allowable under the U.S. Law. Because the Art Guild of Louisiana is an all volunteer organization virtually all of your donation goes directly to providing services and art space to artists. Don’t delay! Donate now to support art development in greater Baton Rouge!

We appreciate your support and thank you on behalf of the artists we serve!
