MIAMI LAKES, Fla. – In mid-April, a group of Park West Gallery’s international artists met with dozens of fresh and seasoned auctioneers at the gallery’s location in Miami Lakes, Florida.

During the 2012 Artists and Auctioneers Conference, the artists – including Peter Max, Itzchak Tarkay, Linda Le Kinff, Leslie Lew, and Csaba Markus – spent time presenting their work and recent accolades to the auctioneers. The lectures were followed by evenings filled with dancing and entertainment. Even with all of the language barriers, dancing became the perfect opportunity for everyone to get to know each other throughout the evening’s activities.

Each artist was given an opportunity to introduce their work to the auctioneers, followed by a brief question and answer session. The events were a rare opportunity for the auctioneers to meet the artists in a mixture of social, intellectual and professional environments, providing a better understanding of their artwork.

Park West Gallery was also excited to introduce our newest artist, Duaív, an internationally known painter and cellist. Deeply inspired by Salvador Dalí and Paul Cézanne, Duaív uses his paintings to share a collective experience with his audience. Bright and uplifting colors provide a cheerful spectrum that fervently matches the artist’s energetic personality.

The full list of the 23 presenting artists included: Tim Yanke, Scott Jacobs, Emile Bellet, Linda Le Kinff, Dominic Pangborn, Charles Lee, Mark Kanovich, Kevin and Wendy Schaefer/Miles, Marko Mavrovich, Peter Nixon, Peter Max, Alfred Gockel, Hua Chen, Leslie Lew, Tomasz Rut, Andrew Bone, Marcus Glenn, Fanch Ledan, Csaba Markus, Alexander Chen, David Najar, Itzchak Tarkay, and Duaív.

    We have just returned
    from NCL Spirit, I am disabled and found your staff fantastic. We bought 3 paintings of which one was a carry off, we have already hung it and hope the two which will be dispatched from Miami will look equally impressive.
    We thank you for the opportunity of enriching our cruise experience.
