The American Art Awards announces their top 25 picks for galleries every March. President of AAA, Thom Bierdz, an artist, author, activist and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless, shared with me why AAA has selected Brown’s Fine Art.
“We certainly appreciate that this gallery has been in business 49 years and offers original paintings by Mississippi and regional artists, wood sculpture, fine antique prints that appeal to eclectic southern sensibilities and world class picture framing in an impressive 10,000 square foot showplace,” says Bierdz. “And the history is inspirational.
“An achievable American dream. In 1963, Mary Grace and James Brown purchased equipment to open a frame business out of their home. In 1965, they opened a store on State Street in Jackson. Now they are one of the premiere fine art galleries in the Southeast. Mary Grace, and son Joel Brown, are as hands-on and busy as ever, offering all styles, themes and mediums. Brown’s Fine Art epitomizes the American tradition of strong work ethic in a family business – as well as the tradition of delivering collectors an honorable and dependable regional art market.”
