I will admit I am biased. In 2005 my family came to NOLA for a convention - we stayed in a big hotel by the water and on our concierge floor was a painting where the moon came alive - the lines of the building moved within the painting and I told my husband then - I want one. In... More

We loved the artist's renditions of the city. Pictures are bright, vibrant and give the feeling of life. We'd love sometime to be able to bring some home. The gentleman running the store is very helpful and loves to 'sell' the city.

This is a wonderful gallery to visit. We were trolling the antique shops, dazzled by the chandeliers, when we were dazzled by the windows of this gallery. If there was any artist who evokes a sense of place that is New Orleans, this guy is it. I ended up with a print for the music room (jaune flyer) in our... More

Very welcoming host, the art was spectacular. It was priced out of range for the average tourist, but a real treat to the art enthusiast of the unique architecture of New Orleans and James' unique capturing of it on canvas.

I was looking for a large piece of art for the house I was building. I didn't want a print or a painting of usual NOLA scenes like swamps, boats, mossy oaks. I like those but I wanted unique. I found him one year at Jazz Festival and knew he would be the artist for my painting. Once I was... More

Not to buy a print (or even a poster, for the budget conscious). The use of color and texture, the obvious love for the architecture and vibe of the city, I had to have it. It was a strain on the wallet, but I'll never regret my purchase.

I was attracted to this gallery after seeing a small piece of the artist's work in an advertisement. I was blown away by the amazing use of color, perspective and texture in his paintings. The thing that most impressed me is that Mr. Michalopoulos has in him the same strange connection to the vibe of New Orleans that resides in... More

Everyone should aspire to own art as amazing as this. If you do nothing else in New Orleans be sure to visit The Michalopoulos gallery. His paintings are windows into other dimensions.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
