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 impressive 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. We study thousands of galleries each year. We are very impressed with the professionalism, reputation, gallery space, enormous web presence, artist roster and clientele of Doubletake Gallery and name them Best Gallery In Minnesota for 2016.”
Bierdz explains, “Doubletake Gallery is a fine art consignment and brokerage service gallery which handles original paintings, prints and sculptures – and essentially endless art options. Their international Internet presence, with millions of hits, and an open-to-the-public showroom, allow infinite opportunities for both buyers and sellers. Not only do they display a broad variety of artwork in house, they welcome offers on all that’s for sale either in their inventory or classified ads area. Regular transactions may include LeRoy Neiman, Salvador Dali, Peter Max, Frederick Hart, Erte, Norman Rockwell and many others.
“Doubletake Gallery is a hands-on brokerage service which means they’re involved in every step of the brokerage transaction. Because of their extensive database of available artwork, virtually any art piece is available through their easy-access web site, even if it is not seen advertised there.
“They also offer a unique service to artwork owners who want to aggressively market their pieces, but want to keep their pieces in their possession until a buyer is located. These can advertise on the Doubletake web site using a free Classified Ad.
Bierdz closes, “Co-owners Robert Varner and Debra Sheek Varner have done a brilliant job creating this multi-functional innovative gallery, serving every possible need of today’s buyers, seller, and artist. We are proud to include them in this year’s 25 Best Galleries In America.”
