Longtime Baton Rouge artist Charles Barbier was a staple of the city's art scene. He often attended shows and gallery openings for others while also mentoring them.

Barbier died on Aug. 2 at the age of 71, which came as a shock to the arts community that had embraced him.

This month, Baton Rouge Gallery will feature Barbier's work in "Barbier Remembered," the gallery's first show entirely dedicated to one artist. The exhibit opens with a 6 p.m. reception on Saturday, Nov. 17, and includes pieces from the artist's collection, as well as some loaned by collectors.
