Park West Gallery Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione with artist Autumn de Forest.

Supportive parents, a love of art, and an attitude of working harder than anyone else are just some of the reasons Park West Gallery Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione gives for succeeding in the art world.

The Huffington Post recently published an article profiling Scaglione and how he made the decision to leave a career in teaching and rocket science to pursue his passion for art, which led to the formation of Park West Gallery, the “largest art dealer in the world” of original artwork.

Nova Lorraine, editor-in-chief of Raine Magazine, shares what she learned after having a one-on-one with the CEO about working with artists like Yaacov Agam and Peter Max, and what influences him as an entrepreneur.

From the article:

Discovering new masters and finding pieces of the old masters, Scaglione is like an Indiana Jones of the art world. Today, alongside his wife, Mitsie Scaglione, Albert has had an opportunity to make an impact in the industry. For example, Park West currently has one of the largest collections of Picasso graphics, all of which have been built through auction houses such as Sotheby’s and more. Read More…

Outside of the art world, the article notes that the Scaglione family is just as passionate about giving back to their community through monetary gifts and donations of art.

    Thank you Albert Scaglione for Park West Gallery. One acquires more than Art from Park West Gallery. To say I have Art from an Artist is one thing, to say I’ve met the Artist was unbelievable but to step into his Gallery is amazing. All through Park West Gallery I was able to do this on 3 different venues with more than one Artist all because you and your Team. I’ve not only collected Art but made friends through Park West Gallery like Ed Richard​ Warren Kendrick​ Sandy Nesbitt​ Dave Nesbitt​ Morna Bowman Rouse​ and my son Chris Lynn​ just to list a few. Thank you~ SL

    i recently got off. The Quantum of the seas RCI. A man name Ian and his wife Lydee were the auctioneers. he was fabulous! Knowledgeable, smart, quick, funny! I have been on many ships and they are by far the best. I purchased some art and he was so helpful with the purchase!

    On my Alaska Cruise, I discovered the most enjoyable part was the Park West Art auctions. I went crazy & bought 4 pieces. 2 Snoopy and 1 fabulous Marcus Glenn and a Tarkay, all hanging on my walls and enjoyed every day. I also got another Glenn on ebay for only $15 and had it framed to join my other art. Thanks for the pleasure.
