The American Art Awards, with an intent to introduce the 25 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, Thom Bierdz, explains why Mirada Fine Art was selected above all the other Colorado galleries, “For years, both the gallery and owner/curator Steve Sonnen have been prominently featured in national and international publications, such as ‘American Art Collector,’ ‘Luxe Magazine,’ and ‘The Culture Trip,’ as well appearing on numerous ‘Best Of’ lists. We love the art, we love the spirit, we love the upward trajectory, we love the history, and we love they are doing something really special, insightful and unique here.”
“Unexpected,” states Sonnen. “That’s the word we hear most often when people experience Mirada for the very first time. I think they are completely shocked that a contemporary gallery with world-class artists would be in this location, but we absolutely love our old log building, and from what they tell us, so do our clients. Our goal is to bring some of the very best contemporary artists to Colorado and our collectors have a discerning eye.”
Sonnen has been able to curate an amazing collection of art, and pulled in award-winning artists such as Larisa Aukon, Jennyfer Stratman, Pablo Milan, and an impressive list of artists from around the globe. Nestled in the foothills, Mirada’s charming log building is a wonderful juxtaposition to the contemporary art. Built in the 1920s, many original features remain. The warmth from the oversized stone fireplace beckons customers in; the captivating artwork at Mirada keeps them coming back. Sonnen and his staff strive to provide the best customer service possible, and continuously bring new artists and artwork into the gallery, so visitors are always sure to find new treasures during each visit. The gallery is a short drive from downtown Denver.
Bierdz shares, “Mirada Fine Art showcases some of the finest contemporary art in the nation in a very authentic Colorado setting. We at American Art Awards name Mirada Fine Art to be the Best Gallery In Colorado, 2015, and one of our 25 Best Galleries In The Nation, 2015.”
