Scene by Rhys.com and the brand new Scene By Rhys Art Gallery present an absolutely unique view of New Orleans music as seen through the eyes of local artist Emilie Rhys whose fine-art pen and ink drawings, created during live performances in the city’s famous clubs and festivals, capture the energy, intensity and movement so vividly that you can hear the music in the artwork.

  

Venues frequented by Rhys include Snug Harbor, Chickie Wah Wah and Prime Example. Subjects vary from Aurora Nealand to Nicholas Payton, Treme Brass to Tuba Skinny, and many more!​

A 3rd generation artist whose art career spans 40 years, Emilie Rhys has since October 24, 2011 been prolifically producing original artworks of musicians during live performances around New Orleans. To promote this work, in December 2015 she launched SceneByRhys.com, and then a year later – along with musician Esther Rose as Manager – Ms. Rhys opened the brick & mortar storefront Scene By Rhys Art Gallery, located in a historic 1798 French Quarter building on Toulouse, entered through a large courtyard guarded by two stone lions high up on the street wall.
 
The purpose of this website and the gallery on Toulouse is to celebrate the music and musicians of New Orleans via the public display and sales of this large inventory of artwork showing one very unique view of the local music scene and other subjects. And musicians benefit from not only from the visual homage in the artwork, but also from the direct commissions Ms. Rhys delivers to them from sales.​​

Originals range in size from 5"x7" to 30"x40", and prints/posters range from 8"x10" to 36"x48". Most are available unframed, but in-house framing options can be viewed at the gallery and soon on the website. Shipping is available all across America.

 

We invite you to take a look at the artwork available for purchase in person during regular business hours at the Scene By Rhys Art Gallery in the heart of the historic French Quarter, and 24/7 online in the website Shop.
