Scene by Rhys Art Gallery opened in November 2016 to celebrate the music and musicians of New Orleans via the public display and sales of artwork showcasing one very unique view of the local music scene. It is the work of Emilie Rhys, whose career spans 40 years and who frequents music venues all over town creating images live as the musicians perform. Musicians benefit from not only from the visual homage in the artwork, but also from the direct cash commissions Ms. Rhys delivers to them from sales of images in which they are depicted. We invite you to pay us a visit in person at the gallery and flip through some of the sketchbooks "“ an interesting random way to explore the music world of New Orleans, seen through the eyes of Rhys during the past six years. Has your favorite musician been Scene By Rhys? Come in and find out! The artist also adds colorful gouache to some, turning them into complex paintings. Throughout the gallery you will find Rhys originals framed by the artist. Most drawings, however, are sold unframed, packed in a Clear-Bag envelope with a stiff acid-free backing board, but note that we can frame anything within a few days, and pack/ship to anywhere in Northern America.
