Rodrigue Studio - Review
George Rodrigue was a student of art school in Los Angeles and in the 1960’s his only wish was to earn a living out of his paintings. He knocked on many doors but not many galleries (of the few that existed) took his paintings for selling.
The artist soon took to an advertisement in the paper and gave his home address for selling paintings. Soon people were floodingthe gallery-house.
In his early 20’s not many people would take him seriously since his paintings gave the impression of an artist of an older age. Today, you can see and buy some of the fabulous art work made by the artist himself. Most visitors stop by at the gallery to see the famous ‘Blue Dog’.

Rodrigue Studio, New Orleans Reviews
Definitely one the the most informative galleries. The story of the artist's life will give you chills. I loved how Blue Dog came to be. How an artist can take something scary and make it happy. I'm not an art lover, but this left me in awe. If you're in New Orleans, make this a stop. You won't regret it!
Owner was very helpful and told us about the artist's inspiration.
Amazing artist, great place to visit.
Attractive art work in a prime location. Seems to be struggling to decide whether it is a museum or gallery since artist's passing.
love George Rodrigue ✨
