The American Art Awards, with an intent to introduce the 25 Best American Galleries to unknown artists worldwide, announces their gallery picks each March 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 above the many other Oregon galleries.
“We love the history, integrity, devotion and expertise, and their reputation with collectors is excellent,” Bierdz explains. “The gallery was opened by Kim Barnett in 1993 after more than a decade spent operating a large art foundry in eastern Oregon. Specializing in limited edition bronze sculpture, Bronze Coast Gallery has been one of Oregon Coast’s premiere fine art galleries for more than 20 years. They even provide education in sculpture and the process of bronze casting. The gallery also spotlights the finest in original painting, photography and giclee reproductions.
“Regional, national and international artists represented include Rodd Ambroson, Austin Barton, Nathan Bennett, Kristina Boardman, Pamela Claflin, John Coleman, Melissa Cooper, David Crawford, Don Dahlke, Jane DeDecker, Jim Eppler, Jason Frederick-Law, Mark Gatewood, Carol Gold, Gene Guibord, Ben Hammond, Annie Henrie, Cary Henrie, Michael Holmes, Sally Kimp, Jack Kreutzer, Ann LaRose, Nano Lopez, Cammie Lundeen, George Lundeen, Mark Lundeen, James Moore, Eugene Morelli, Randy Mulder, Matthew Gray Palmer, Victoria Parsons, J.
