5 Press Gallery, which opened its doors in November 2014, is a new project of The NOCCA Institute, the non-profit partner of New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, Louisiana’s tuition-free arts conservatory for high school students. The gallery’s exhibitions feature alumni who began their art career at NOCCA, visiting artists and NOCCA faculty. Proceeds of sales of artwork benefit The NOCCA Institute. We are adjacent to Press Street Station, another project of The NOCCA Institute which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from 8am until 8pm.
5 Press Gallery features new exhibitions monthly and bimonthly with receptions every second Saturday from 6pm until 9pm. In addition to exhibitions in the gallery space, we showcase a selection of affordable art created by Louisiana artists who are educators and mentors to other artists. These works are available ‘to-go’ in The NOCCA Marketplace at Press Street Station!
