I enjoy seeing all the local artists and being able to say I know them is really exciting. I have recommended this place to my family and friends when they come into town for a visit. Always something new to see no matter who many times you come in!

Great place to visit and see local art. It is located in the heart of downtown Foley just off the main highway headed for the beach.

This store front is very surprising. It looks like a small store front and the name performing arts is misleading. Step in and found 2 floors full of gifts, jewelry crafts and paintings from the locals. Most very affordable.I will not be buying gifts from walmart again. They also have classess for all ages.

I thought this was a performing Arts building but upon going in , its a gallery of 250 Artists and there so amazing. I loved the variety of things and the building just kept on going. IT takes awhile to stroll and there are artists. there to answer questions about the subjects. When I got hungry it was off to the Ice Cream Parlor and yumm....staceys had a train that ran acroos the top of the ceiling.////It was all fun.
