President of www.AmericanArtAwards.com is Thom Bierdz, an artist and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless.
“We at American Art Awards examine thousands of galleries each year,” Bierdz explains, “… and are excited to name Kiechel Fine Art the Best Gallery In Nebraska, 2015.”
Bierdz explains, “For almost thirty years, Kiechel Fine Art has specialized in 20th Century American Art with a focus on artists from the Midwest; John Steuart Curry, Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, Dale Nichols – among many others. Kiechel also represents many of the top Midwestern Contemporary artists like Keith Jacobshagen, Fancisco Souto, Dan Howard, Steve Joy, Susan Puelz, & Robyn O’Neil.“Kiechel also represents the estates of John Steuart Curry, James Eisentrager, Thomas Coleman and others. They have an excellent reputation and work closely with the families of deceased artists, finding new works to honor and bringing them to market.
“Their gallery itself is a work of art! Located in the heart of historic downtown Lincoln, it currently showcases four unique gallery experiences. On the first floor gallery, with 20′ ceilings, patrons find the top Nebraska contemporary artists. The second floor spotlight gallery shows regionalist artwork with classic one of a kind works by Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood and John Steuart Curry. The spotlight gallery then opens into the print room where patrons can admire the fine workings by Mary Cassatt, Albrecht Durer, James Audubon and many others. Third floor spotlight gallery showcases Nebraskan photographer Larry Ferguson, and in the third floor’s open gallery space are works by various contemporary artists from around the country.
“Opening this summer, Kiechel will curate their very own sculpture garden that will also include a wine bar and comfortable seating.
