The American Art Awards announces their top 25 picks for galleries every March. President of AAA, Thom Bierdz, an artist, author, activist and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless, shared with me why AAA has selected Southam Gallery.
“For 36 years Southam Gallery has been one of the premier galleries in the Inter Mountain Region and we are awed by the detail, depth, and luminescence of the exceptional representational art of the American landscape that they represent. They rep some of the most beautiful paintings we have ever seen anywhere. “We at American Art Awards are proud to name Southam Gallery the Best Gallery In Utah, 2015 and one of the 25 Best Galleries In The Nation, 2015.”
