Accomplished painters, photographers, digital artists and sculptors from 60 countries annually enter online images in the prestigious AMERICAN ART AWARDS — which is scored by the 25 Best Galleries & Museums in America. In September, masterpieces from 44 of those countries earned the highest marks and won cash and/or 1st to 6th Place in the 50 categories.AAA81B_jpeg
