In 1978 Arthur Roger opened his gallery on Magazine St. in New Orleans' Garden District. The artistic scene in the city was just beginning to burgeon and the Arthur Roger Gallery moved to the forefront attracting a number of New Orleans most prominent artists including Robert Gordy and Ida Kohlmeyer. In 1988 the Arthur Roger Gallery moved to an architectural award winning space in the historic Warehouse/Arts District in downtown New Orleans. The gallery maintains a balance between artists from New Orleans and artists of national repute from outside the city. In 2004 the Arthur Roger Gallery opened a second venue in the Arts District in the Renaissance Arts Hotel. Both gallery spaces were virtually untouched by the ravages of Hurricane Katrina. The Arthur Roger Gallery is strongly committed to continuing to play a key role in the cultural revitalization of one of America's greatest cities.
