      Henry deTonti……Old Mobile’s ambassador to native tribes, Circa 1703-1705. “Bra de Fer” (Iron Hand) was LaSalle’s chief officer before joining the Bienville brothers in tne founding of Mobile. The trading agreements he negotiated literally insured the early survival of the colony. He died of yellow fever in 1705.
      I have reenacted deTonti at Mobile historic events for 15 years.

      Great roster of Arts Warriors/Winners!

    6. David Lindon Harris on May 17, 2019 at 9:01 pm

      Great job !
      There are a lot of Buildings here in Mobile Alabama that needs be spruced up . Older Buildings that needs to be put back in to use . Homeless work training shelters would catch 2 fish with a single hook . That in itself is a multiple bonus for everyone that lives in the Mobile County area . Even the least able people can become a benefit to themselves again , and to our entire family community as a whole .
      City revenues would be increased dramatically in short order , and in the long term we all would gain a much preferred good name .
      Please consider this , every time you get together ? A strong foundation starts with compassion , and builds by faithfulness .

      Thank you for your time and consideration and efforts .

    12. Ruth Grant on April 21, 2020 at 10:10 pm

      I have several of your CD’s—-I love the Marreros!

    13. Jerry Powell on April 21, 2020 at 10:23 pm

      Alright! Full disclosure! I’m admittedly somewhat biased as Eric and I have been friends since high school! He had many more friends than I because he spent so many years there! On top of being a dear friend and a kind soul, he is obviously a multi talent! He has certainly helped make any project I have included him in a huge success! He is well-deserving of this award!

    14. Ralph Hough on April 22, 2020 at 12:26 am

      Those sound bites have a great feel…! Congrats, Eric!

    15. Byron Cruthirds on April 22, 2020 at 12:31 am

      I’ve known Eric since High School. Not only does he play a assortment of musical instruments, he is a singer, and a Comedian! He’s played with the Plum Loco Band and many others around the Gulf Coast.
      The Mobile Arts Council made a Excellent Choice!

    16. Gary Stiegler on April 22, 2020 at 3:07 pm

      I am proud to have the opportunity to play drums in “Tony B and the Opperators” with Eric. He is a very talented musician and a great guy.
      I have several of his CD’s done by Eric and his wife Karin. What a great talented couple. Keep up the good work Eric.

    17. Ken Matthews on April 22, 2020 at 5:52 pm

      We let me glom on while you’re hot in the news. I listened to Eric at a restaurant years ago playing solo with guitar. I was knocked out at this
      highly refined talent. That’s all folks…Ben Mathis, cousin of Ken Matthews.

    18. Dan the Man on April 24, 2020 at 2:00 am

      Eric is an amazing talent. Hoping one day we can do a project together!

    19. Amanda M Youngblood on August 25, 2020 at 1:01 am

    20. Margaret Richey on November 19, 2020 at 1:45 am

      I’m a local artist. I would love two or three (or as many that you will allow) thin slices to paint on. A series. I would love to paint on a piece of history from our beautiful city. Please consider me. Thank you. I love Mobile

    21. Frederick Hoffmeyer on January 28, 2021 at 1:18 am

    24. Selena Garza on March 20, 2021 at 2:37 pm

      Hi there,

      My name is Selena Garza. I recently moved into a home in Mobile that had been occupied by the same family since it was built in the 70s. They left a piano in the house and inside of the piano chair I found an old recital program from May 2, 1953 at Bernheim Hall. If you guys are interested in preserving and archiving this piece of history I would be happy to pass it along. You can call or email me. Thank you.

      i would like to buy a ticket attend

    26. David M. Cahoon on May 6, 2021 at 10:39 pm

      Eric is not just talented, he is gifted. He has ability, wit,
      and work ethic. He will be very successful when ( if ) he grows up.

    27. Bonnie Johnson on May 11, 2021 at 1:53 am

      This is a beautiful traditional quilt. The center medallion was designed and hand appliquéd by Bonnie Z, a Guild member. Many of the members made squares and member Ramona Thompson custom quilted it. All of this was accomplished under the leadership of Lamoyne K and Quilt Show Chairman Peggy Stone. We are excited to be having the first area Quilt Show after COVID-19. Having had much more time to piece, appliqué and quilt you will be treated to see some spectacular quilts at the Festival of Quilts “Back to Traditions.” See you August 20 or 21, 2021 at Abba Shrine Center 7770 Hitt Road.

      Fairhope’s Corey Swindle
      is ready to use his talent to recognize Mobile’s best athletes.

      By Joey Warner
      MOBILE BASEBALL
      CONNECTION

      A life size statue of Hank Aaron is on display at the Mobile Arts Council Gallery next door to the Saenger Theatre in downtown Mobile.

      “Being the hometown guy, and having been involved in baseball my entire life, this project is especially near to my heart,”
      Corey Swindle wrote in a message.

      Corey Swindle of Fairhope, Alabama along with four more finalists have submitted their work and it is on display at the Arts Council Gallery.

      https://mobilearts.org/city-of-mobile-mobile-arts-council-seeking-proposals-for-hall-of-fame-courtyard/

      One of the talented experts will be chosen as the artist to achieve and fulfill this amazing project.

      Six nine-foot-tall bronze statues with pedestals, portraying Mobile’s five Hall of Fame baseball players and one Hall of Fame football player will be erected in the Hall of Fame Courtyard in Cooper Riverside Park next to the Convention Center at the foot of Government Street in
      downtown Mobile.

      Former Major League baseball players Hank Aaron; Leroy “Satchel” Paige, Willie McCovey, Ozzie Smith, Billy Williams and former Houston Oiler and National Football League player Robert Brazile are the first players to be recognized with more members of the Mobile Sports Hall of Fame to follow.

      Swindle’s son, Brody, is a rising star on the baseball field for Coach Matt Limbaugh at Bayside Academy High School in Daphne, AL.

      It is evident Corey has his heart and soul in to this opportunity.

      As baseball and sports enthusiasts from Mobile and Baldwin Counties as well as the surrounding area, we should rally around and support Corey Swindle with hope he will be the lucky one chosen as the creator of these unique sculptures.

      “My team feels we have a great shot at this project and would be honored to be apart of this awesome project,” Swindle wrote.

      Check out Corey’s work in the images of Hank Aaron.

      Hi,

      I am looking to host a medical school graduation party for approximately 100 people and was wondering if you might have any spaces that could accommodate us. If so, please let me know what you can offer us and the various price points.

      Thank you very much!

      Hey I registered and paid but did not receive any type of confirmation other than a charge on my credit card. Who should I contact about registration?

      • mobilearts on May 17, 2022 at 6:28 pm

        Hello Courtney! You should have received an automated email confirmation. I’m guessing it went to your junk/spam folder. We will be reaching out to you shortly! 🙂

      It seems that this show is getting earlier and earlier. I wish I had more time, but I’m going to try to have something by next Monday (June 20). I have been in the show before, but I’m not currently a member, so that will be taken care of when I enter.

    50. David Adams on June 25, 2022 at 6:17 pm

      I was so fortunate to get invited to a luncheon at Roxanne’s house where I first saw her miniatures. I have always told people ever since, her display cases were like a “mini museum” . . . . . I wish I had the funding to put all of her miniatures into a single “Roxanne Dyess Miniatures Museum” . . . . she was one talented lady.
