American Art Awards president Thom Bierdz announced Sin City Gallery is one of the 25 Best Galleries In America for 2013. Bierdz explains, “Sin City Gallery is a rapidly growing establishment offering complex, scintillating and irreverent art that is widely collected locally, nationally and even internationally. So what ‘art’ happens in Vegas, does not necessarily stay in Vegas.
Owner Dr. Laura Henkel, with a PhD/Doctorate of Human Sexuality and certificates in sex education from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, offers an intelligent display of both teasing and heady images. Laura’s past dissertation being the artistic and academic programming director for the Erotic Heritage Museum has given her immense credibility in a city where sexual images are rampantly dismissed. The art is intriguing here, often with more layers than one expects. We salute their continual brave and edgy exhibitions and are excited to include Sin City Gallery in our picks for the best galleries in the nation this year.”
Jeff Wack’s “Oceana” won Best In Show at 12 Inches Of Sin International Juried Art Exhibition. Last year’s Best In Show at 12 Inches Of Sin International Juried Art Exhibition was Allan Teger.
