American Art Awards Names Bronze Coast Gallery The Best Gallery In Oregon 2014, Highlight Hollywood EXCLUSIVE News

Each  March, the American Art Awards, with an intent to introduce the 25 Best American  Galleries to unknown artists worldwide, announces their gallery picks via  Highlight Hollywood. President of AAA, Thom Bierdz, a painter and actor  known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The  Restless, shared with me why AAA has selected Bronze Coast Gallery this  year above the many other Oregon galleries.


“For  over twenty years, Bronze Coast Gallery has been one of Oregon Coast’s  premiere fine art galleries,” Bierdz explains. “Specializing in limited edition  bronze sculpture, the gallery was opened by Kim Barnett in 1993 after more than  a decade spent operating a large art foundry in eastern Oregon. We love that the  focus of the gallery is to provide education in sculpture and the complicated  process of bronze casting.


“They also offer stunning original painting,  photography and giclee reproductions, and they feature dozens of award-winning  regional, national and international artists. We at the American Art Awards are  impressed at the incomparable work, professionalism and reputation,  and proudly name Bronze Coast Gallery as the Best Gallery In Oregon, 2014,  and one of the 25 Best Galleries In The Nation,  2014.”
