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 is Thom Bierdz, a fine artist and actor known to millions as Phillip Chancellor III on The Young & The Restless. Bierdz shares, “We at American Art Awards scrutinize thousands of galleries each year and find Westport River Gallery as the Best Gallery In Connecticut, 2015.”
“Westport’s dealings and expertise in fine European, American & Asian fine art is unmatched,” Bierdz says. “Their web site reads like a library, regularly updated with articles on highly collectible international artists’ works, like French artists Dominique Dorie, Jean Pierre Dubord, Yetvart Kaprielian, Jean Claude Duteil, Elisabeth Estivalet, Poumelin, Kerfily, Quizet, and Courchia.
“Gallery owners Ken and Pat Warren also deal in top American artists like Louis Schanker, Eugene Paprocki, Milton Bond, HM Saffer, Vitello, Mona, Zider.
“The Warrens are also recognized as preeminent dealers of Pissarro – and not only Camille Pissarro, the father of French Impressionism – but also his subsequent three generations of artists including H. Claude Pissarro, Paulemile Pissarro and Lelia Pissarro.
“Westport River Gallery has specialized in European, Asian and American paintings and prints for decades and we at the American Art Awards salute their tireless devotion to impressionism, realism, abstract and modern art.”
Westport River Gallery works with all levels of art collectors, corporate clients and decorators. They enjoy launching new artists selected on their reputation, level of credentials and distinctions. Westport River Gallery is located next to the downtown area off the Saugatuck River, in famed Westport, an hour from New York City.
