About Us

The Deux Bayous Gallery Collective is a project of the 501(c)(3) organization, NuNu Arts and Culture Collective and is part of a vast network of culturally related organizations that work together to build a healthy and strong creative community.

Deux Bayous Gallery, is part of an over-arching organization that continually provides opportunities for artists, artisans and those who seek to learn.  Our underlying philosophy, education.
Because the NuNu organization is multi-layered including visual, culinary, literary, healing, performing arts and more, each component impacts the next providing for increased opportunities for the whole. In addition, by nurturing and empowering our independent artists, we utilize local resources sustainably. By stimulating active participants and positioning the arts within the community, we support the development of active arts consumers thus increasing the opportunity for fair wages.  It also means that we become more self-sufficient and less dependent on imports and it helps to provide a voice to a diverse and varied creative community.

Additional benefits include: access to exhibition space and opportunities both in Arnaudville as well as satellite locations; access to a virtual store-front; discounted entry to Frederick sponsored events; co-op advertising; co-op purchasing power; access to legal services; access to graphic design services; teaching opportunities and more.
