Dear Friend of the Arts,

Business leaders and friends of the arts in Calcasieu Parish understand the value that Art brings to the quality of life in our community.  Nowhere is that value more apparent than at the Black Heritage Gallery.  In 2001, the Gallery opened with a grant from the Junior League of Lake Charles, Inc.  Since its inception, we have relied upon the philanthropic legacy of our community to keep the gallery growing, advancing and serving the needs of artist.

The Gallery is located within historic Central School Arts and Humanities Center in beautiful downtown Lake Charles. All exhibits and opening receptions are free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of friends like you.

We hope you will embrace the spirit of giving and make your gift to Black Heritage Gallery today. Your generosity will enable emerging artist the opportunity to showcase their work to a broader audience.

We appreciate your support!  Please call if you have questions concerning our fundraising efforts.

Sincerely,

Stella Miller, Curator
