A Few More Feathers in Freret's Cap

Du Mois Gallery premieres on January 9, 2010:

Du Mois Gallery will host the premiere exhibition on January 9th 2010 as part of the revitilization in the heart of the Freret commercial corridor.

Nestled in the early 20th century shotgun is 600 square feet of space ideal for small individual exhibits or group shows. Du Mois aims to be a local gallery for local talent rotating work on the second Saturday of each month.

Du Mois is a contract gallery and has the cultural district designation allowing artists to sell work tax free. If interested in exhibition or for more information please contact dumoisgallery@gmail.com.

I think this is the little (but long) shotgun two houses up from Cure on Freret (across from Crescent City Comics).  I noticed the front of the building was painted a pastel sky blue recently.  An art gallery will be a great addition to the street.

In other news, I've heard the tall "Goldbrick" structure next to Freret Paint that has now been changed into a sleek, modern, three-story white building will house the gallery and living space for Brottworks, glass artisan Andrew Brott, whose studio is currently located  in the blue building next to Las Acacias Supermercado.
