The Gallery hosts contemporary exhibitions every month, focusing on Louisiana landscape, architecture, her people and unique customs.
Art Walk is hosted by all the galleries in the Arts District in the evening on the first Saturday of each month. Jean Bragg Gallery participates in the District’s special events: Whitney White Linen Night in August, Art for Art’s Sake in October, and April’s Jammin’ on Julia. Anchored by Julia Street, these annual street parties are held in true New Orleans fashion with art, music, food and fun!

MAY 4: GROUP SHOW with Christopher Inglis Stebly, Melissa Smith, and Susie Ranager: Earth, Sea & Sky, Paintings of the Gulf Coast
In the late 19th century, city-weary New Orleaneans traveled by packet steamer over Lake Pontchartrain to vacation on the Gulf Coast. Artists and artisans alike were attracted by the healthful climate and the exotic flora and fauna. Biloxi, became a Southern “Carmel-by the Sea” and hosted nationally known artists like Wilson Irvine, Arnold Turtle and William Robinson. Today, homes, businesses and studios along the Gulf Coast are being rebuilt after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. In the steps of his famous grandfather, Walter Anderson, Christopher Inglis Stebly carries on the artistic tradition with his fine art as well as decorating the Shearwater pottery in Ocean Springs. Melissa Smith with a studio in Bay St. Louis has achieved national fame with her meticulous, exquisite panoramas of the Gulf Coast. She is among the select few chosen to be represented in A Unique Slant of Light, The Bicentennial History of Art in Louisiana. Susie Ranager in Pass Christian with her painterly, bold contemporary style and bright color palette depicts the lush tropical landscape in a timeless fashion. Now New Orleaneans may not arrive “Over the Lake” by packet steamer to enjoy the Gulf Coast, but artists still document a now vanishing ecology with their paintings.
