Cruise Art Auctioneers have Tough yet Amazing Job

The Art Auctioneers maintaining the Park West Galleries on cruise ships around the world lead extraordinary lives. While they do work hard running Park West’s Cruise Art Auctions, they also get to explore all of the exotic locations they find themselves in – all while meeting some fantastic people along the way.

We hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into their activities as much as we do. We also love hearing about your experiences with
Park West at sea, so please feel free to share them with us.


"Since I have joined the Park West Gallery team, I have had some truly amazing experiences. I have sipped espresso in Venice, shopped the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, dove in some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world, and met and worked with some truly fantastic people.

Abandoned Fishing Boat. Anatoly Metlan.These are some of the perks, now here is what it took to get there. I was challenged like I had never have been challenged before. The eighteen hour days, the hours of studying, the fear of not being chosen, yes, the training was tough, but when I finally took my first ship and banged the hammer on my first sold work, I knew I had found a home.

Yes, we work hard, yes, it’s probably the toughest job you will ever have, but how many jobs can you be in Venice one day and Athens the next? I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing!"

  2. Carla, I think it is great that you are interested in art auctioneering. Check out for more information. You can also apply for a position as an art auctioneer there. I would also suggest that if there is an art auctioneer onboard your cruise ship, you speak with him/her to get an even better feel for the job.

  3. I am an artist, Art Institute od Houston graduate from 1993 in Graphic Design. How can I have my art reviewed for sale at Park West Gallery?
