The New Orleans Art Center:

The New Orleans Art Center is the largest gallery in the Bywater. We are delighted to show local artist from our location in  the city's "Saint Claude Arts District." Located in the heart of the ninth ward and the Bywater.

We are in an area populated by not for profit art coop's and we have a very different mission. Our goal is to help local artist support themselves in a sustainable method.  Since opening in the beginning of 2015 the New Orleans Art Center has proudly exhibited over 500 artists in our 6,500 sq ft show space and we hope to show another 500 in the coming year. Thank you so much for visiting our web-site please visit the gallery on your next trip to New Orleans.

 ​   New exhibit each 2nd Saturday​​


"Collecting at its best is very far from mere acquisitiveness; it may become one of the most humanistic of occupations, seeking to illustrate by the assembling of significant reliques, the march of the human spirit in its quest for beauty..."
(Arthur Davison Ficke)
