"We are long time customers of William Bigham Galleries since the days of the African Home Gallery. The many items of art purchased over the years has been the finest quality, unique, interesting, affordable, and most importantly meaningful and representative of who we are and where we come from. Our recent acquisition of the Shona baboons is exciting and fulfilling. As you know we recently took a trip to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. the baboons we purchased from you remind us every day of the wonderful and exciting times we had on game drives in the motherland. Keep up the good work."

Paula Green & Dr. Thomas Britt

"Having collected Afro-centric art for some time, we were gratified to find William H. Bigham Galleries practically in our front yard. We found so much more then we expected, from the Stone gallery to original art beautifully displayed along the gallery walls. If ideas are needed to feature in living room. It has been out pleasure to experience Gallery Bigham, which included suggestions and advice. Our congratulations to Mr. Bigham for such a well planned and wonderful collections of artifacts."

Carol & Wesley Braxton, Naperville, IL

"For over a year, my husband and I had struggled with how best to display several previously-owned precious pieces of artwork in our home. William Bigham came into our home and provided us with new perspectives on how to showcase out artwork; he even helped us re-arrange our living space. Without the services from Bigham Galleries, I doubt we would have realized the new possibilities. Much success with your second new gallery."

Roland & Beverly Barbour, Cottage Grove, IL
