Hello Park West Gallery,
My fiancée and I along with my parents recently went to 3 Park West auctions held on board the Carnival Glory during a 7 day cruise of the Caribbean. I had been to a Park West auction on a cruise last year but did not intend on bidding. This time around, I was determined to attend and bid and buy.
I want to congratulate Park West for having such a wonderful collection of art as well as such wonderful staff. The Park West staff on the Glory was extremely knowledgeable, personable and informative.
The auctioneer, Martin, was a joy to work with and provided information about every piece on the block. Martin's assistants, Roxanna (his fiancée) and Cornelia were equally knowledgeable and pleasant. But it was Martin's special flair that helped me to enjoy the auctions so much more. "I'm just sayin!" That was Martin's trademark saying during the auctions. "Trust me!"
Because of Martin, my fiancée and I purchased an Alexander Chen, 3 Emile Bellet pieces, and we collected a few free pieces (Krasnyansky) thanks to raffles. My parents purchased a Thomas Kinkade, a Scott Jacobs piece, a set by Schaefer & Miles and a Max! Yes a Peter Max. I am so jealous of them. And it's all because of Martin.
Thanks again Martin, Roxanna, Cornelia and Park West.
