PARK WEST’S FOUNDER
Park West Gallery Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione worked in his cousin’s art gallery as a teenager in New Jersey. He learned techniques for framing, varnishing, and hanging art, and, most importantly, Scaglione learned the impact art has on people. When he gave his parents a work of art with the money he earned at the gallery, the sense of awe and joy they experienced stuck with him.
Scaglione established Park West Gallery in 1969, leaving behind a promising career in mechanical engineering. He quickly learned that—by seeking out and working directly with artists and the estates of artists around the world—he could ensure the quality and authenticity of the art he was bringing to his customers, allowing them to collect with confidence.
Through Scaglione’s tenacity and ingenuity, Park West Gallery now has relationships with over 100 major artists and artist estates.
In 1995, Park West Gallery began hosting art auctions aboard international luxury cruise lines alongside Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International. Today, Park West can be found aboard more than 100 cruise ships around the globe, including ships in the Asia market.
Guests aboard cruise ships can enjoy free art education seminars and peruse onboard galleries at their leisure. Park West’s friendly and knowledgeable art teams are always more than happy to answer any questions.
By taking art auctions out of the traditional auction house setting, Park West Gallery creates a comfortable environment where new and seasoned collectors alike can acquire beautiful works of art they will treasure for the rest of their lives.
