The Opportunity of a Lifetime

"One Step" by Mark Kanovich | Park West Gallery Collection
Dear Park West Gallery...

"I hope you will please pass along my sincere and heartfelt thank you to the entire management and VIP team at Park West Gallery. Never in my life would I have imagined the generosity and hospitality we experienced on our recent trip. It was the opportunity of a lifetime. To meet all of you, and the artists, along with the other wonderful guests, was a real pleasure.

This was a week we will never forget.

My best to you, and everyone at Park West Gallery, for Happy Holidays, and a successful 2011."

Thanks for a Marvelous Weekend

Marcus Glenn, Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection
"Marquita & The Girls" by Marcus Glenn
Dear Park West Gallery,

"Our sincere thanks for the marvelous weekend we enjoyed at the Orlando VIP event. You go out of your way to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

In particular, [the art auctioneer] and his staff and the other associates are knowledgeable, pleasant and fun to be with, plus we get the opportunity to see friends whom we have met at earlier auctions.

[This art auctioneer] is a wonderful asset to Park West Gallery, and the evening at Cirque du Soleil was exceptional; being able to spend time with the artists -- Linda Le Kinff, Marcus (and his wife Yolanda) Glenn, and the surprise visit from Marko Mavrovich is not only an education, but a privilege.

Thanks to you, we are scrambling for wall space, and proudly display our paintings as we move up in the caliber of our collection."

"We just came back from an amazing trip to Napa Valley!!! As usual, everything was above and beyond!

Every one of the Park West Gallery staff, crew, etc., made us all feel just like family. The experiences we have had the pleasure of enjoying with you are all such great memories.

It is such a pleasure to know how well you take care of us on the business side also. You continually knock our socks off with the artists we meet and the opportunities you give us. Every time I spend time with Park West Gallery, I bring home so much knowledge about art it just amazes me!!!!

Dear Park West Gallery...

"I have bought several paintings on cruise ships, all from your company, and I must say I have been very pleased with all of  the transactions. I only wish I had more room on my walls for more. I even went to the extent of remodeling. That's where I have my Peter Max hanging.

"I would like to sing the praises of the staff that helped us on the ship. The auctions were a lot of fun and we will look forward to the next cruise or opportunity to buy art from your wonderful company."

High Praise for Park West Gallery Sales Associates

Victor Spahn, Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection
"Red Sails" by Victor Spahn | Park West Gallery Collection
Dear Park West Gallery...

"I have been working with Angela for several years. I do not know who will read this e-mail, nor do I know if it will be of any interest or help to Park West Gallery, BUT, you have an OUTSTANDING employee in Angela.

I have asked this woman repeatedly, for information, pictures of products, opinions etc. and she has NEVER missed a beat bringing me what I requested. I know that she gets paid, probably on commission, but being in sales myself, I know that sometimes, a client can make you work far harder and longer than what your commission compensates.

Any company can hire a 'body' to do the work at hand, but to employ someone who has the ability to maintain their composure, keep a customer feeling like they are important and get the job done at one time is rare. This is your employee in Angela.

I have no idea if this e-mail will help her in her career. I don't know if it will help Park West Gallery in assessing her as an employee, but I hope that by taking this time, someone will figure out how awesome this lady is to a company.

I have never met her, but, I believe what she tells me concerning your products. How valuable is a person to a company that evokes a sense of trust in its clients?

I have asked Angela to send this e-mail on to her supervisor so that it will find it's way to the desk of those who evaluate an employee's worth. Trust me, she is valuable!"

An Unforgettable Park West Gallery Cruise Art Auction Experience

Alexander Chen, Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection, cruise art auctions
"Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics" by Alexander Chen | Park West Gallery Collection
Dear Park West Gallery...

"My family went on a Carnival cruise in August 2010 and we were curious about the art auction. We had never been to an auction before. We never planned to buy any artwork but as we looked at the artworks, we were captured by the beauty of the paintings.

At the end of the auction, we bought 14 artworks (Tarkay, Kinkade, Le Kinff, Mavrovich, Gockel, Glenn) and we also won some artworks. My husband liked the 'Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics' by Alexander Chen but we couldn't budget for it. The Art Director made it possible for us to acquire the Beijing Olympics by working around our budget.

We were so happy and couldn't believe that we actually bought so many pieces. We want to thank [the Art Director] for being very professional and very understanding. He made the auction very interesting and we will never forget that experience."

A First Rate Art Auction Cruise

"Village de Pecheurs" by Jean-Claude Picot | Park West Gallery Collection
Dear Park West Gallery...

"I know Ann emailed you right after we got back to tell you what a great time we had. We both thought I should also let you know now that things have settled down that we could not have enjoyed ourselves more.

Your coordination of the event was first rate and the knowledge and attitude of the entire team was extraordinary. You all seemed to be everywhere and always seemed to have an answer to our questions no matter how basic they may have been.

We look forward to getting the art and displaying it. I hope you all get a well deserved break."

Thank You for the Gift of Art

"Albert, Dominic, Cara, and Rob,

Rex and I would like to thank you for the wonderful time we had at Sunriver VIP event. The kindnesses and generosity of Park West Gallery CARES has been overwhelming for our high school Art teacher and students. They will be able to study Art right in their classroom instead of going on expensive trips out of town. The art pieces and books will be used for years to come.

Rob, good to your word, you got Dominic to Oregon and Winston!! Thank you.

Albert, thanks for embracing our Art cause in our community, and heartfelt words for Rex at Sunriver.

Cara, thanks for organizing this donation event and representing Park West Gallery in our community.

Dominic, no words can express our thanks for everything you have done for us and our community. The 'Rainbow Tiger' will proudly watch over the Community Center entrance. The new logo of the cheetah looking through the trees shows how the City has grown-up. Taini, the ambassador cheetah from the Safari has never looked better wearing your tie.

Park West Gallery has shown that people still care about what is important in life, helping others to better themselves. Giving money is temporary, but the gift of art is long lasting and can move the very soul.

Thank you again for all your efforts in making this a reality!!!!"

Mayor Rex and Gail Stevens
Winston, Oregon
