N The Art Space is a three-building, 14,000-square-foot artist studio and arts education complex that supports over 40 local working artists in private studio spaces in the heart of Bocage. This professional environment helps define art as a small business providing personal, secure studio space, art educational space, and support for businesses in the heart of Baton Rouge. N the art space turned 17 this year and continues its forward momentum through awareness and support. Owner Mark Biletnikoff, a Louisiana native, has created and supported local art for over 20 years. He is behind the drive to expand creative expression in our community. A Louisiana State Certified Cultural District, we are part of a compact cultural hub of art studios, galleries, artisan jewelers, and businesses that support the arts. N hosts up to three open studio events each year. In addition to individual open studios, art markets, and daily creative business operations, We continue to incubate and grow creative expression from the artist up. This encouragement and growth exist daily. N the art space always supports the sale of local original arts and crafts directly from the artist. Our policy is to include local artists from the region in our events free of charge to help ensure creativity and cultural entrepreneurship flourish. We are also happy to connect patrons to work they may be interested in purchasing for their home or business. 100% of all art sales at N the art space goes directly to and is handled by the artists. During the COVID 19 Pandemic, N the art space follows all CDC guidelines for our creatives in residence and their clients. Once our community reaches a safer and more relaxed atmosphere, we will continue to hold no public open house events. You can, however, still make appointments to visit our artists individually. We can also still connect you to many artisans when you search for artwork or creative services.
Any artist interested in learning more about our spaces or being a guest vendor during our events (event participation is always free of any fees) can contact us through this website or directly at:
