Each year the American Art Awards board selects the 25 Best Galleries And Museums In America.
HighlightHollywood.com reported in 2016: “The impressive AAA board chooses only one museum or gallery per state per year. Their 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 consider thousands of the most established art venues from Alaska to Florida. This year we chose several museums and art centers with historical significance of 100+ years, some with over 100,000 annual visitors, some specializing in global acquisitions, some American treasures, others offering objects preserving their state’s legacy, and some celebrating one specific artist’s life work. We’ve also selected some of the most reputable art galleries; some which offer every style of international art, others exhibiting works from one region or one genre. A Native-American and an African-American facility are included in our Top 25, as well as a long-standing women’s design institution, a popular Boston sculptor’s co-op, and a Hollywood Warhol hot spot.”
ART on 5th won the distinction of Best Gallery Or Museum In Texas, 2018, and one of American Art Awards 25 Best American Galleries / Museums, 2018.
American Art Awards: “We are very impressed with ART on 5th’s museum-like setting, being Austin’s largest contemporary gallery with over 7,000 square feet. Their roster of artists is eclectic and exceptional, from Picasso to Warhol to Dr. Seuss to Jermaine Rogers to dozens of local, regional and national painters and sculptors.”
MORE ON THE GALLERY:
As the only commercial gallery ever voted “Best in Austin”, Austinites and visitors alike continue to applaud the colorful and diverse gathering of local, Texas, national and international artists. Gallery owner Joe Sigel opened the gallery in 1998, realizing the need for a contemporary gallery in Austin and he introduced a collection of works by Picasso, Andy Warhol and others. Since then the gallery has evolved along with Austin’s constantly changing tastes, and now carries one of the largest collections of the Secret Art of Dr. Seuss in the country.
The gallery also showcases original contemporary works that don’t fit any genre, from Byron May’s incredible 3 dimensional paintings on stainless steel to Paul Stankiewicz’s funky take on Austin’s iconic landmarks. With a rotating stable of over 200 artists, ART on 5th offers a wide variety of artistic styles to suit any taste.
