American Art Awards Names Best Gallery In Hawaii, 2022: Sunshine Arts

Each year the American Art Awards selects the 20 Best Galleries And Museums In America; only one museum or gallery per state per year. Among other criteria, selections are based on years established, industry reputation, online buzz, location, size, socially relevant exhibits, motivational and educational programs, represented artists as well as artist, client and visitor references.

American Art Awards: “We considered thousands of the most established art venues from Hawaii to Maine. This year we chose five museums, one with an impeccable reputation for 125 years, one 80, one 50, one 40, and one fairly new. We selected a Mid-West art center doing important community work for 44 years, and a lively Southern gallery linked to a 5 day festival. Most the galleries we selected are heralded longtime landmarks with expansive interiors perfect for exhibiting today’s contemporary masters. Many have several locations and cater specifically to regional collectors with regional artwork, but just as many represent all genres of work from all levels of national and international artisans.

“American Art Awards selects Sunshine Arts as our Best Gallery In Hawaii, 2022, and one of our Top 20 Galleries & Museums in America, 2022. One of Kaneohe’s most cherished and successful proprietorships, established in 1996 with an investment of only $100 by Jim Franklin, now 23 years later, is co-owned and operated by Laetitia Atlantis. The impressive 4,000 square foot structure on the Windward side of Oahu offers over 2,000 original art images by 100 best-selling artists. Any tropical image that exists, this popular gallery has versions on canvas, print, photo and sculpture. Local and international designers and collectors know this is the best place to find unique treasures by authentic Hawaiian artists. Named Best Of Kaneohe by the community, and tourists seem to agree, as does American Art Awards.”
