American Art Awards president Thom Bierdz announced that Westport River Gallery is one of the 25 Best Galleries In America for 2014. Bierdz explains, “We select a variety of galleries, one per state, with different specialties, because in August these gallery giants vote on unknown artists’ images in over 50 categories. ‘Good art’ is a subjective term and it is interesting to note that our esteemed galleries do not choose the same winners in these categories, however the submitted online images with the most votes win 1st to 6th place respectively. You have already revealed some of our 25 Best Galleries For 2014, many which excel in contemporary art and a few which had made their reputation representing masters like Rembrandt and Manet. For Connecticut we are selecting Westport River Gallery this year. We respond to their distinctive European, American & Asian fine art, and are impressed that Westport works with all levels of art collectors, corporate clients and decorators.”
Thom Bierdz, an artist, author, activist and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless, continued, “Husband and wife team, owners Ken and Pat Warren, have expertise in fine International work by the French artists Pissarro, Dominique Dorie, Jean Pierre Dubord, Yetvart Kaprielian, Jean Claude Duteil, Elisabeth Estivalet, Poumelin, Kerfily, Quizet, Courchia. We have several categories for impressionism paintings in www.americanartawards.com and we can’t think of anyone more qualified to score these than the Warrens.”
“The Warrens also deal in top American artists like Louis Schanker, Eugene Paprocki, Milton Bond, HM Saffer, Vitello, Mona, Zider. The gallery is also known for offering works by the father of French Impressionism Camille Pissarro, and his subsequent three generations of artists including H. Claude Pissarro, Paulemile Pissarro and Lelia Pissarro.
“Westport has specialized in European, Asian and American paintings and prints for many years and we at the American art Awards certainly respect their professionalism, history, and passion for historically referenced classical paintings.”
Ken Warren adds, “Artists are selected based on their reputation, level of credentials and distinctions. Styles include classic impressionistic, realistic, abstract and sometimes modern.”
Westport River Gallery is located next to the downtown area off the Saugatuck River, in famed Westport, an hour from New York City.
