Highlight Hollywood supports all venues of the entertainment industry, from politics to sports to cinema to fine arts. This year, we again have the exclusive rights to introduce our readers to the 25 Best Galleries In America, as designated by the American Art Awards. The AAA board, headed by president Thom Bierdz, chooses only one gallery per state per year. Their selections are based on years established, industry reputation, online buzz, location, size, represented artists as well as artist and client references.
Bierdz explains, “In the past, American Art Awards has honored well over a hundred galleries. To make our selections, we study thousands of galleries and museums each year. We are very impressed with the expansion, variety, gallery space, exhibitions, events, artist roster and clientele of Miami’s Art Fusion Galleries and for these reasons award them Best Gallery In Florida for 2016.”
Bierdz explains, “Established in 2001, Art Fusion Galleries now represents over 1,000 Emerging to Mid-Career Contemporary artists from around the globe and is known as the preeminent gallery in Miami for integrating the best of Emerging to Mid-Career Contemporary artists. This scope of international cultural artistic diversity is reflected in the galleries’ vibrant, distinctive and provocative energy. The 8,000 square foot pristine contemporary Chelsea style gallery is located in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Art District and they feature four very popular exhibitions annually; including a permanent exhibition by gallery director, William Braemer.”
