The American Art Awards are in full swing as artists from around the world have begun submitting their work in hopes of being recognized. They recently named the Blue Rain Gallery in New Mexico best in the state known as a spiritual retreat and muse for many world famous artists.

“In 1993, Blue Rain Gallery birthed as purely a contemporary Native gallery and met success. When other Native galleries disappeared in the growing corporate art market, owner Leroy Garcia continued his dedication to neo-tribal and contemporary Native American artisans but also expanded and diversified. The talented Native American and established contemporary non-native artists offer original paintings, bronzes, wood sculpture, glass sculpture, works on paper, pottery, ceramics and jewelry. Leroy has a keen ability to showcase innovative and authentic artworks which connect to the heart of the collector. We are honored to name Blue Rain Gallery the Best Gallery Or Museum In New Mexico and one of our 25 Best Galleries And Museums In America, 2017.” Thom Bierdz, President, American Art Awards
