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. We study thousands of galleries each year. Having one of the largest inventories in the state and almost 60 years in business, we at American Art Awards have selected Evalyn Dunn Gallery to be the Best Gallery In New Jersey for 2016.
“It is very rare to find a gallery so successful it is approaching it’s 60th year. Evalyn Dunn Gallery was founded in 1958 as a local venue for the exhibition, framing and preservation of art, and now also features the finest 20th Century American and European art.”
