Aquarium Gallery and Studios New Orleans Bywater


The Aquarium Gallery & Studios is an artist space in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans, LA. (Not associated with the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas)

Consisting of living space, artist studios, gallery, and a rotating artist residency, the Aquarium aims to connect the New Orleans community with local and traveling artists by offering monthly art shows every Second Saturday, which coincides with the St. Claude Art Walk.

Jacob Reptile Aquarium Gallery

The space was built (and rebuilt, after a fire in 2016) by Jacob Reptile Martin.

Jacob is a fiber and mixed media sculpture artist who creates and sometimes offers workshops to make costumes and paper maché masks.

The house holds a collective of several shared artist studios which holds occasional open studios and events.

(There are currently no studios open for rental)
