Auctioneer Rob Ducat belted out an extended “sold!” as one last work of art by Matt Beyrer left the stage on October 21. The audience cheered as the artist was invited to the stage.

But the cheers weren’t just for the artist or the end of another auction—they were celebrating an extraordinary moment in Park West Gallery history.

Beyrer accomplished what no other Park West Gallery artist had ever done before: he sold out not one, not two, but 17 events in a row.

“I’m shocked, honored, and honestly can’t believe it,” Beyrer says. “I owe it all to Park West collectors and the Park West staff.”

Collectors have fallen in love with Beyrer’s ability to fuse together both his medium of choice—wood panels—with his imaginative compositions. He has the uncanny knack for transforming something as simple as wood grain into ripples in a seascape, a hazy sky over a mountain range, or even a stunning figure emerging from the wood.

When asked why people seem to gravitate to his art, Beyrer believes they connect to it on an emotional level.

“I hope it’s because they can relate to it in some way, shape, or form,” Beyrer says. “I tend to always paint a little journal of my life, and it’s nice when it’s special enough that collectors are willing to hang it on their wall.”

But Beyrer doesn’t simply grab any old plank of wood and start painting—he carefully selects his panels, cuts them to his desired size, and may even sand or burn the wood before ever picking up a brush.

“What people don’t understand is they just see the final product, but what they don’t realize is that they are buying more than just an object,” Beyrer says. “They are buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. Years of frustration and moments of pure joy—a piece of my heart, soul, and a small piece of my life.”

Given his success with Park West, Beyrer is now constantly creating new works in his studio in preparation for his next event. He says each event inspires and encourages him to continue honing his unique style.

“I’ve always enjoyed exploring different subject matter, but I learn from each and every piece,” Beyrer says. “It’s been a dream come true and I look forward to all the future events to come.”

In addition to his unique paintings, Beyrer has also created a series of limited-edition caldographs with Park West Gallery, offering yet another opportunity for art lovers to own his artwork.

    My wife and I will be on a 14-day Princess cruise to the Caribbean beginning 1/26/19 (B904 on Caribbean Princess). Can you advise me if any of Matt Beyrer’s works will be available on that cruise? Also, will any of Daniel Wall’s works (particularly Reflection Serenity) be available on that same cruise?

    Thank you,

    PS – We have purchased other works from Park West on our many cruises with Princess.

    My husband and I became Matt Beyrer fans on our cruise in October. We purchased 3 pieces of art work by him on that cruise one of which was a special offer of Sunset Reflections a unique work done for us. We understood that this piece would take some extra time because he would be doing it just for us. We received word that it was being framed and was on the way and we were so excited. The piece arrived yesterday and although it is beautiful to say that we were a little disappointed is sad. We understood that he was going to do the art anyway he choose but the image on the cruise which is what really pulled us showed beautiful sunset colors across the sky which reflected down into the water. All the different colors to us was what made this piece of art so special and ours (although beautiful) had none of this. Thanks for listening.

      We had the same experience. We purchased a special offer of a similar work based on the beautiful range of sunset colors. It also took longer to arrive since he was creating them as they were purchased. While it has the same tree silhouette in the foreground, it has none of the beautiful colors. Instead it is almost completely one shade of orange. Definitely not as expected. While it is a unique work and we love his style, we are disappointed with the final product, too.

    My son and I first saw Matt Beyrer at an event at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville,
    NC December 2017 sponsored by Park West. I was amazed with the beautiful art pieces and bought 2 paintings! I preregistered for art auctions for an upcoming Carnival cruise this February. I definitely put his name down hoping to see more of his work! I have beautiful works of art from several cruises from varied artists including Chris DeRubis, Tim Yanke, Alex Renoir, and others! Park West offers exceptional artwork for anyone’s taste! Love love love beach artwork especially! Can’t wait for the next auction!!!😍🌴
