Dear Mr. Scaglione,

"I wanted you to know about the great time my family and I had recently on the NCL Jewel. [The art auctioneer] did an excellent job as host of the VIP experience. From the moment of our invitation, the visit to Peter Max's studio, meeting Dominic Pangborn to the last meal with the other attendees, his thoughtfulness and attention to detail were appreciated.

We've been customers of Park West Gallery for many years and have always enjoyed our artwork as well as the Park West experience. The art around our home brightens and inspires us all. We are all now looking forward to hanging our 3 new Pangborns.

I believe that one of the things that sets your company apart is the apparent family atmosphere we feel. Not only amongst your employees on board (which was top notch), but the fact that my children were welcomed so warmly by [the art auctioneer] and his team. We had several special moments throughout the event. Of particular note was meeting Dominic and seeing him take the time to sit with our daughter and discuss art - that meant a lot to us.

I thought you should hear directly from one of your happy customers about the wonderful experience my family had with [the art auctioneer], his team and the other folks who attended the event. It was something that [we] will be talking about for many years. I look forward to the day where I can meet you and share other great experiences we've had with Park West Gallery."

Park West Gallery Auctions Turn Cruisers Into Art Collectors

Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection, Dominic Pangborn
"Full of Color" by Dominic Pangborn | Park West Gallery Collection
Dear Park West Gallery,

"I am sitting in my living room on my laptop and just looked around at all the wonderful Park West Gallery art I have hanging on the walls. I never thought about collecting art until my first cruise that featured art auctions. Since then I have collected at least 30 pieces that adorn the walls throughout the house.

I have learned that hanging art is akin to inviting the artists to live with me and my wife. By far, our favorite artist is Dominic Pangborn. I have created a mini gallery in the most visible part of the house that solely displays Dominic's works. His pieces are the centerpiece of our collection and undoubtedly the topic of conversation with everyone that comes to the house.

Also, thank you for providing an opportunity for your clients to meet the artists. I met Dominic at an event and talking with him, hearing about his life made me want to collect more and more of his amazing art. I am proud to share my home with such an amazing artist and an even more amazing person."

"Fuengirola, Spain" by Igor Medvedev | Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection
Dear Park West Gallery,

"We would like to express our appreciation to Park West Gallery and in particular to two employees who made our holiday that much more special. During our recent vacation we attended the art auction. The auction was an exciting event and [the auctioneer] did a exceptional job directing the event. We were particularly pleased with the attention and guidance provided by [the auctioneer's assistant]. Ultimately we ended up purchasing a piece of artwork and are very pleased with the process and our purchase. We will definitely be contacting Park West Gallery for our future purchases. Thank you."

"Thank you for a most enjoyable week on NCL Epic. It was wonderful to meet James Coleman, Tim Yanke and Nano Lopez. We met some really nice people who were also chosen and of course, [your staff] who was very informative and also fun. We are so glad you included us! Thank you, again."

Pat & Bob H.
Kingsland, Georgia
"I just wanted to let you know how amazing your art auctioneer and his assistants were on this cruise. We have purchased a lot of art work from you over the years on cruises but this was the most fun and informative of them all. Our son, who is not impressed with anything that's not fishing or scuba diving, had a great time at the seminars and auctions. [Your auctioneer] made a collector out of him! I wish [your auctioneer] would put his seminars on DVD. They are that good. We hope to be fortunate to encounter him and his staff on a future cruise."

Dear Park West Gallery,

My husband and I just completed our third VIP cruise with Park West Gallery. We have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to travel with you and view and purchase amazing art.

One of your associates has been with us on each of our cruises. We feel so grateful to have experienced these cruises with him. He is knowledgeable, professional, kind, humorous, and constantly helpful. Knowing that [he] was going to be on our latest cruise was a deciding factor for us in terms of going.

It was during this cruise that we purchased a Marcel Mouly original. [Your associate] always ensures that our trip will be a wonderful experience. We feel very fortunate to have met [him]. Moreover, Park West Gallery is very fortunate to have him on their staff.

Dear Park West Gallery,

"Recently while on a cruise aboard Norwegian Jewel out of New York we attended several seminars/auctions which were conducted by [your art auctioneers] along with their support staff. We wish them to be recognized for their professional informative seminars and maintaining a lively atmosphere during the auctions along with their congenial interaction with the individuals in attendance. We are confident that you will concur that good representative performance deserves to be recognized."

"I want to write to thank you and the team on Norwegian Epic for the great time I have at the various art auctions and the VIP Gallery Tour. This was my first cruise and I did not know what to expect; little did I know I would gain so much knowledge attending the art auction and have such a wonderful time. I even won the 'Guess the price of a Picasso' competition. I left with new art for myself and my friends and I am very very content. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!"

Lisa T.

"Thank you so very much for all your help in making our cruise such a wonderful and memorable trip. It was a pleasure meeting the artists and sharing dinner with Tim Yanke. He truly added to all our 'fun'. [Your staff] was so very helpful and efficient with all our reservation needs, promptly answering all emails. You certainly have a fabulous team and it is proven by the professionalism and yet personal touches extended by all. Hope to be able to meet up with your team and our 'Mouly' friends on a future endeavor with Park West Galleries."

Kudos to Park West Gallery Customer Service

"La Bella" by Csaba Markus

Dear Park West Gallery,

"I write to commend Mary in your Customer Service Dept. She is extraordinarily helpful — detail-oriented, follows through, always cheerful (despite Michigan weather!), intelligent, alert and typifies the essence of true customer service. She is a credit to Park West Gallery and you are lucky to have her in your employ. She is definitely a rarity in today's business world.

My father and I are enjoying our art from your shipboard galleries, and we appreciate the lectures and chance to enhance our learning and collections. The Art Director, on Regent Voyager in November 2010, was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant as well.

Also, Mike, in your Southfield Gallery, was helpful to us last spring with some framing there.

Thank you to you all, but most especially for Mary."

"I just want to let you know what a gem you have in [your art auctioneer] — she did a wonderful job. Bright and cheery, easy to work with and she just makes you feel like you have know her for quite some time. She did a great job at the auction... I hope I can catch her on our next cruise."

"Our cruise on Carnival Victory was truly enhanced by the art auctions. The auctioneer was easily one of the best I’ve listened to on a cruise ship. He shared a depth of knowledge that was truly helpful. I’ve already had most of it framed and hung and the whole family is enjoying the art."

Thank You from St. Mary Interparochial School

Dear Park West Gallery,

"Sometimes the sweetest moments are those that happen spontaneously. Park West Gallery is responsible for one of those sweet moments at our school, St. Mary Interparochial School.

Last January 31, 2011, through your collaboration with Art-Reach, Cara Huffman brought one of your artists, Marcus Glenn, to visit our 8th Grade Class. Mr. Glenn engaged the attention of all the students in the telling of his personal story. We learned of the support of his mother and his persistence in following his dream to become an artist. He talked about his unique style and the hidden meanings behind his paintings.

Your generous donation of two paintings, A Dance at the Gallery and Girrrl, You Gotta See This One, allowed the students to see and 'touch' the paintings first-hand. These two paintings will be auctioned off in the Spring and will help to fund our art program. One of our lucky families will be the proud owner of an original Marcus Glenn.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

My Heartfelt Thanks to the Park West Gallery Staff

"New Moon" by Peter Max | Park West Gallery Collection | © Peter Max 2011
Dear Park West Gallery,

"I am so remiss in getting back to [the Park West Gallery staff] concerning the great time we had in Washington, DC the week of November 22nd.

It was a good experience for my children, and my friends were interested enough to ask when the next event would be scheduled. I love all of the pieces shipped to me so far and await the others. 

I especially want to thank all concerned for the time that we were able to spend with the 'Two Peters.' I received my Peter Max photos and think of them as the highlight of the weekend; along with my table book, of course.

Please extend my heartfelt thanks to the rest of the staff for the wonderful time and attention extended to us."
