One can project anything onto Blue Dog but what I mostly experience is happiness. No matter what setting the artist puts him in, he’s always a joy to see. Back in 1998, I first saw Blue Dog at a gallery in New York City and...More

The studio is a nice short activity to get away from the busy street. Several of the blue dog paintings are hung around the space, and there are some prints as well. Nice to see some of the prints that feature celebrities, while also showcasing...More

The holy trinity of bad service is served up at the Rodrigue Gallery. I was shocked and very saddened by the behavior of the sad woman working at the gallery. She was rude when the people asked a question and when we asked her about...More

I bought my first Blue Dog on my first trip to New Orleans and have been hooked every since. The whimsy of Rodriguez' work is infectious. Whether a collector or just browsing this spot is a must see and a true New Orleans legend. The...More

I was looking forward to seeing many of Mr. Rodrique's works. However, this is a true sales studio, with only about 2 dozen pieces on display. It only took minutes versus hours to view. Maybe his galleries in other cities have more works on display....More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
