One of the greatest resources available for art lovers and collectors lies just 45 minutes north of metropolitan New Orleans in historic Covington, La. Founded in 1813, it has maintained its special small town charm through extensive preservation efforts. One of the newest additions to Covington is the Brunner Gallery building located at 215 N. Columbia Street, the center of the historic district. The building features contemporary architectural elements designed and fabricated by artists. This fine arts gallery houses a comprehensive collection of local, regional and national artwork.

Brunner Gallery was founded in November, 1997 by Rick and Susan Brunner. Louisiana-born artist Rick Brunner is noted for his work as a sculptor and furniture maker. Susan Brunner, also a Louisiana native, specializes in art placement and consulting for both residential and commercial spaces. Both Rick and Susan bring their diverse backgrounds in art together to celebrate a unified vision for their gallery. It is their hope that Brunner Gallery inspires the viewer with unique and provocative artwork created by contemporary artists.

Brunner Gallery represents a variety of media including original paintings, printmaking, ceramic, sculpture, photography, mixed media and sculptural furniture. It carries a range of contemporary art spanning such styles as abstract expressionism, impressionism and primitive. Exotic wood turned bowls, large hand built clay vessels and sculptural shields are among some of the most unusual treasures found in Brunner Gallery.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Exhibits rotate frequently and receptions are held at the beginning of each exhibition. Receptions are open to the public. See exhibit schedule for details.
