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 Missouri’s selection, “The Hilliard Gallery is one of the oldest and largest fine art galleries in Kansas City, established in November of 1974, by previous owner Kent Hilliard. Located initially in the heart of the beautiful Country Club Plaza, the Hilliard Gallery in its second year of operation became the exclusive authorized dealer for artist LeRoy Neiman in the Kansas City area, and they still are today.
“In March 2006, Hilliard moved to their current facility in the crossroads art district, and is an elegantly urban and always evolving gallery. The Hilliard Gallery was voted by the Kansas City Visitor Center, visitor poll, as the Best Gallery In Kansas City in 2012 and in 2014 it was voted by the readers of the Kansas City Magazine as the Best Gallery In Kansas City. Their large, lively inventory, 41 years experience, and direct working relationships with over 200 artists and their publishers impressed us at American Art Awards and we name Hilliard Gallery the Best Gallery In Missouri, 2015, and one of our 25 Best Galleries In The nation, 2015.”
