The American Art Awards has announced its selection of the 20 Best Galleries in USA for the year 2023, with MAC Art Galleries receiving the award for the best gallery in Florida. The board bases decisions on years established, industry reputation, online interest, location, size, aesthetics, socially relevant exhibits, motivational and educational programs, represented artists and references, among other criteria.

AMERICAN ART AWARDS: “Each year we pick a variety of galleries in appearance and genres, and this year is no exception. In our Top 20 for 2023, we chose the largest gallery in the Southwest and the largest exhibition space in Florida and the largest in Austin, Texas. An Atlanta organization specializing in black art won in Georgia, a bold Vegas pop hotspot won in Nevada, and museums were chosen for Kentucky and South Dakota. We also selected one of New York’s only non-profit galleries, downtown Indianapolis’ premier event venue space and an enormous Kansas institution which is fulltime home to 35 artists. We decided on several galleries owned by notable painters, some women-run, and some specializing in Western impressionsim, others in abstract, others in realism. Most our Top 20 represent contemporary paintings, sculpture, digital art and photography — but we do have businesses exhibiting old master works from Europe, Asia and the Americas.”

AMERICAN ART AWARDS: “Four locations equaling 20,000 sq ft gives MAC Art Galleries the largest exhibition space in South Florida, and with close proximity to Art Basel & Art Miami, they are a vital part of today’s art culture. Maintains an in-house Multimedia Department complete with digital photography studio, state-of-the-art Gicleé printing facility — with computer-graphic/prepress. For over 20 years, owner Mary Ann Cohen has represented many of the world’s most accomplished and commercial artists: selling internationally to upscale hotels, restaurants, corporations, luxury cruise ships and museums.”
