Dear Park West Gallery,

"Connie and I just wanted to say 'Thank You' to you and all the Park West Gallery VIP staff for a wonderful experience. 

Everything from our hotel room at Gaylord Palms to Opa's to the Cruise was awesome. We really enjoyed all the VIP events on board ship. 

Getting to meet the artists was something that we will not forget, and all of them were just so nice. 

The artwork presented during the cruise was beyond anything we had imaged seeing on board a ship. We went with the intentions of picking up another work from Jacobs or Agam but because of what was presented our 'home gallery,' as we like to call it, was taken to the next level. 

Again, thank you and we would love to be included in another VIP cruise in the future."

Thank You for Bringing Wonderful Art Into Our Home

Dear Park West Gallery,

"We had a wonderful time meeting [the auctioneer] and his staff. Unfortunately, or should I say fortunately, he showed us a deal that we just couldn't pass up. We set out on our trips with a budget for art at the auctions. Between [this auctioneer] and [the] land auction in Branson, MO, we tend to spend more than we planned. This is not necessarily a bad thing, I just wish they showed the big deals earlier so we could save some money and space in our home. We now have over 100 pieces of art between paintings, sculptures, sports memorabilia and other modes of art. Thank you for allowing them to show my wife and I such wonderful pieces and allowing us to meet some of the great minds and talents the art world has to offer."

"My husband and I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful trip to Bermuda in October. And meeting Peter Max at his studio was fantastic"

"Thanks for the wonderful 'peek' at the engraving talents of Linda Le Kniff. I especially enjoyed seeing part of her gallery and a brief look at the Siamese cat wandering around, as many of her works contain 'Le Chat.' I enjoy your timely newsletter to us, and have always had a marvelous time at cruise auctions whether as a VIP guest or just meandering oceans..."

Igniting Interest in Art

Dear Park West Gallery,

"I'm a beginning art collector and I met [your auctioneer] on the first day of the cruise. While I was perusing what I thought was the ship's art collection, he introduced himself and I found him to be personable, congenial and polite. 

As we began to talk, he inquired into the level of my art collection/artist and what I like and why. Based on that information, he showed me pieces that I might like. Through his passion and knowledge, he ignited my interest in art. Subsequently, he invited me to attend his mini seminar which I found enjoyable and informative which enticed me to attend the onboard auction

I walked around and viewed the pieces and found several pieces to fall in love with. Unfortunately, they were beyond my means. Feeling my disappointment, [the auctioneer] sat down with me and helped me to learn that we should learn to enjoy the larger pieces and collect the smaller ones. 

Through him, I have become reconnected to the wonderful world of art. I feel a special connection to a special person. Thank you for scheduling him in my path and I would hope to see him again."
