Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!


"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..." Words of the late artist Frank Howell...

Alabama Writers Symposium Art Show

Last weekend was the Alabama Writers Symposium in Monroeville.  Best Friends Gallery was invited to show artwork by some of our artists in the gallery at Alabama Southern Community College for the duration of the event.  It was a very exciting weekend for all who attended!  We were able to chat with some of our favorite local writers to include Mark Childress, Winston Groom, William Cobb and more, and returned to Bay Minette with some new friends...and lots of signed books!





  We have put the gallery back together and are open again for business here in Bay Minette.  Something new for Bay Minette that we are working on with the North Baldwin Coalition of Excellence in Education (or NBCEE)...An Art Camp for children!!! that will take place in June.  Debbie and I will teach techniques in collage, polymer clay, mixed media, and acrylic painting...and some of our BFG artists will teach as well.  It promises to be a fun-filled week for all who attend!  Contact us at the gallery if you have children that live in the area and are interested.  251-937-8090....
