American Art Awards Announces Best Gallery In Arizona, 2014, Is Exposures International Fine Art, Highlight Hollywood EXCLUSIVE News

Exposures International Fine Art in Sedona is named Best Gallery In  Arizona, 2014, by the American Art Awards. President of AAA, Thom Bierdz, also  known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless,  explains, “Having 2,000 works exhibited and a prestigious 20,000-square-foot art  display, this is the largest gallery in Arizona.
“Exposures International Gallery  of Fine Art was established in 1996 by husband and wife team, Marty and Diane  Herman. Today they represent over 100 artists, so you’ll find numerous rooms  exhibiting art with an emphasis on the West – paintings in all mediums on  everything from canvas, linen, steel and glass, to photography, impressive  displays of monumental sculptures to majestic bronze eagles by Chester Fields.  The Hermans have excelled in the art business and we at American Art Awards  also love their generous passion to artists and regional causes and we are  proud to name Exposures International as Best Gallery In Arizona, 2014.”
Judy Harper of Sedona Magazine describes: “As impressive as the garden area  is, once visitors step inside, it’s like going from black and white to an  energy-charged, over-the-rainbow OZ. To the right, striking bronze sculpture and  fountains that are a provocative blend of modern, primitive, Southwest and Asian  influences, bring the space to life. To the right, a long entry ramp reveals  color-splashed paintings and photography of the Southwest.”
Born and raised in New York City, Marty Herman studied photographic art  before he became a combat photographer in the Vietnam War, where he was also  served with the photo intelligence branch of the U.S. Air Force. Post-Vietnam,  Marty worked in New York and Hollywood, with jobs that included motion picture  cameraman documenting the Apollo Space Program’s landing on the moon. He went on  to pursue a very successful business / marketing career. He worked for “REI”  Italian Radio and Television Network as an assistant cameraman. In 1975, Marty  founded a Los Angeles-based advertising agency, “JAM Advertising Ink.” The $10  million agency specialized in marketing companies from around the world that  wanted to penetrate the tough Los Angeles market. Its clients included Toshiba,  Coca-Cola, Ritz Cameras, Oshman’s Sporting Goods, Laserium, and University  Stereo.
Marty’s commitment to honesty and integrity, combined with hard work in  advertising and marketing, built University Stereo from $2.7 to more than $40  million in annual sales. As a result, Marty was awarded the “National Retailer  of the Year Award” for consumer electronics. He was also named to the list of  “Top 100 Executives” by the Los Angeles Times. Marty is continuously invited by  some of the world’s largest international manufacturers and leaders to express  his thinking. He is recognized as one of the world’s opinion leaders in his  field.
Marty married dental hygienist, Diane, a native Virginian with  experience in equestrian showing and extensive studies and passion for both the  performing and fine arts.
Today the Hermans not only own and operate the largest gallery in Arizona,  they are cherished  beacons in the community. Marty serves as vice chairman  of the Sedona Art & Culture Commission and the couple donates tens of  thousands to various regional causes.
Diane Herman explains, “In our experience, art definitely makes people feel  better. Our mission is to create an unparalleled environment of artistic  enjoyment for our visitors, so that when they come to our gallery they feel  good. We work to provide a supportive platform for our artists. Our gallery gave  us the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world. It  was, and continues to be, an honor for us to promote and encourage  artists.”
