You've got a shitty best friend there. Did you not sign your painting?
Sign the back. Document the process. Have a few witnesses. I feel terrible about the insane level of injustice OP experienced, I really do. However, it is a bit of a YDI for failing to protect their creation. Want to bet Mrs. Rowling filed for a copyright before the proverbial ink dried on her first book?
That is plagiarism. Taking a person's idea/creation and claiming it as your own. Contact the art gallery and give them the proper information.
