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. Created in 2005 to fill the need for private local studio space, this professional environment helps define art as a small business providing private secure studio space, art educational space and support businesses in the heart of Baton Rouge. N the art space turned 20 this year and continues its forward momentum through awareness and support. Owner Mark Biletnikoff, a Louisiana native, has been creating and supporting 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 studio, art markets and daily creative business operation, We continue to incubate and grow creative expression from the artist up. This encouragement and growth exists on a daily basis. N the art space always supports the sale of local original arts and crafts directly from the artist. It is our policy to also include local artist's from the region in our events free of charge to help ensure creativity and cultural entrepreneurship flourishes. 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 is following all CDC guidelines for our creatives in residence and their clients. Once our community reaches a safer and 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 are in search of artwork or creative services.
