“The 2014 American Art Awards selects CITYLOFTART as the Best Gallery In Florida, 2014,” says Thom Bierdz, president of AAA, also an artist, author, activist and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on the soap opera The Young & The Restless.
Each March the major online art competition www.AmericanArtAwards.com selects their top 25 picks for galleries in an effort to introduce the best American galleries to unknown artists worldwide. Bierdz continues, “Miami is one of the world’s leading cities for art and lifestyle and CITYLOFTART, with ten years experience in the center of Miami’s Art & Design District, stands out with contemporary and futuristic European illumination.”
Owner Hans-Juergen R.Klemm explains, “We offer a new approach to art and color. Art for harmony and well being, strong colors for strong light.”
Klemm, of German origins and education, cultivated twenty years management in luxury export markets in France and Italy. He shares, “Understanding the language and the cultures of important foreign prospectors is an advantage. We provide a special mood, gorgeous light and colors, a harmonious intimate ambiance. You feel the intricate work behind every detail.
Klemm is as well a fully licensed Real Estate Broker with his own corporation INVESTCOUNSEL. He realized that Art and Real Estate have a common basis: Emotion, which is the deepest impulse for a purchase-decision. You buy a home if you feel and love it, you buy art if you feel and love it. And you will marry both to state your taste, your sensitivity and your difference.”
CITYLOFTART is also an appreciated cultural event place with its imposing terrace right on Biscayne Boulevard: Art Vernissages, Performances, Fashion Shows, Dance Spectacles, Entertainment and Live Music for Miami’s nightbirds.
