Park West Gallery and Albert Scaglione Lit Our Art Collecting Spark (Customer Review)
If you’ve been traveling on the high seas lately, you may have seen or heard announcements for Park West cruise ship art auctions. As one of the largest art dealers in the world, Park West Gallery sells works of art through our galleries in Michigan and Florida as well as on cruise ships internationally. The next time you find yourself on a cruise vacation getaway, be sure browse the Park West Gallery Collection onboard and stop in for the auction!
Hi Travis (Cruise Art Auctioneer),
“We were delighted to be with you and the rest of the Park West staff from Sept. 30 to Oct. 10th. We had a great time…bought too much art…love each piece…as we only buy the pieces that speak to our hearts and move our souls, but where will we hang it all? Don’t worry…where there is a will, and room to hang up one more tier…there is a way!
We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of yet 12 more pieces to add to our collection that we started with Park West Gallery 35 years ago in Memphis, Tennessee when Albert Scaglione was the auctioneer, outstanding educator, check out person and even helped load our car! In all that time I don’t think we’ve had a better educational session as thorough, concise and enjoyable as you presented in your “History of Printmaking.” We also enjoyed your presentation by the delightful lady…I forget her name…on 30,000 years of art in 30 min which we later learned was your work.
When we were onboard, you said you would be happy to send me your outline or “cheat sheet” of both presentations, or even better if you have the presentations on a disc…I would love to have them to help our son and new daughter in law get to know our art and have an appreciation and love of art as we do.
They are newly married, as were we when Albert took us into the world of collecting and lit the spark and passion we have enjoyed all these years. Patrick of course grew up with art everywhere, even had Chagall wallpaper and a Picasso print in his nursery…but has always taken it for granted. Perhaps now that he will soon be starting to consider their needs for a home and the potential for art on the walls, I would like to give him the opportunity to be more knowledgeable about the finer aspects of collecting. I can not think of a finer instructor/mentor than you!
I do hope you will be able to help us with this request…just think of the young fertile minds you will be leading into what we hope will become a lifelong passion for art! Again, we so enjoyed meeting you and the others…what a great team you make. Everything appeared seamless and as though you were hardly working, but rather having fun along with the rest of us! We know how much effort y’all put in and appreciate every ounce of it!”
