The American Art Awards, with an intent to introduce the best American galleries to unknown artists worldwide, selects their top 25 picks for remarkably proficient and accomplished galleries each year in March. President of www.AmericanArtAwards.com is Thom Bierdz, an artist, author, activist and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless.
Bierdz explains Hawaii’s selection, “Family owned and operated since 1999, husband and wife team John and Vera Kirkpatrick run two wildly popular galleries on the Big Island. Both locations are filled with original one of a kind pieces. Genesis Kings offers international work while their Queens location offers only authentic Hawaii work. We at American Art Awards appreciate galleries who offer regional art and support their local artists and genres. Genesis has served the community for 16 years and participates in local art events, fundraisers and school scholarship events.
“Known along the Kohala Coast as the highest-rated destination in galleries by Trip Advisor, Genesis Galleries is American Art Awards Best Gallery In Hawaii, 2015, and one of our 25 Best Galleries In The Nation, 2015.”
