Good Morning,

My Wife and I received an invitation to your VIP cruise on the NCL Escape in January of 2017.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Park West Gallery, we bought our first art piece in 2004 on a family cruise. We continued to purchase several pieces over the years. In 2015 we were invited to a land event close to home. We had a wonderful time, when the invite came in for the cruise we were excited. Your staff was excellent. The cruise was great, we met some great people and became friends with others by the end of the cruise. Meeting four great artists was a real treat. We bought several pieces. We just received the last piece from that order.

After hanging the artwork they all look fantastic. I have noticed over the years how great a job your company does with the framing of your artwork, several early pieces we framed at a local shop do not compare in quality or looks. Again thanks so much.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Scaglione,

 

My delight cannot be contained! I must write to you — or burst! I sailed on the Norwegian Epic from 23 December to 30 December 2016. I have attended many of your auctions on 6 different cruise lines. I always loved going to the auctions, especially to learn about the artists and to view such a vast variety of art!

Through the years I had never seen a piece which I would like to own — regardless of the piece! THIS TIME WAS DIFFERENT!!

The second piece offered made me sit up and take notice! The price was a bit steep for me, almost $900.00. To my delight, no one placed a bid on it! At the end of the auction I inquired about the piece. I just simply could not resist! I purchased it on the spot. The artist is new to your gallery — which did not surprise me at all. He is Slava Ilyayev, and the work I purchased is called “A Little Stroll.” I could hardly wait for it to arrive at my home!

Well, arrive it did — and I was amazed at the care which was taken to ship it! The weight was 34 pounds — and it was packaged as though it were pure gold!! Well, to me — it is!! It brightens the entire center of my home — and I smile EVERY time I walk by it. I enclosed several pictures to give you an idea of its new home.

THANK YOU, and your organization, for giving me and my home such a lift!

Sincerely yours,

Adella B. Latus

We have just returned from another wonderful cruise aboard the Celebrity Silhouette (February 12th).  Our favorite active on board is to attend the Park West auctions and as always we were not disappointed with our experience.  What made the auctions so special and so enjoyable for us was not only the artwork presented  but the Park West team that worked the auctions. This time we had the pleasure of dealing with Andries Schoeman and Andre’ Mostert.  Mr. Schoeman was outstanding in his knowledge of the pieces displayed and we even attended a wonderful lecture he gave on several of the artists you represent.  Both Mr. Schoeman and Mr. Mostert were professional, polite, and knowledgeable.  They listened to our likes and dislikes and presented us with many wonderful pieces to choose from.  As a result we purchased several pieces to add to our collection.  We thank Park West and especially Mr. Schoeman and Mr. Mostert for a memorable experience.  We look forward to our next auction and hope we will have the pleasure of working with this team once again.

Hello,

My name is Glynis Martin.  I live in Tasmania, Australia.  I have just returned home from a Royal Caribbean cruise – The Voyager of the Seas.  My husband, Cedric, and I just wanted to give you some positive feedback about your auctions on the ship.

Before we went on the cruise, we did not know anything about art auctions, having never attended one.  After going to 5 auctions and quite a few seminars, we are now well versed in the knowledge about different artists from around the world.  However, this would not be possible without Mr. Divan Van Zyl – the Art Director of Park West Gallery on board the Voyager and his wonderful team of people.  He does such an incredible and amazing job of delivering the information about each and every painting and its creator.  Divan is so dedicated to Park West Gallery and his knowledge is amazing about each picture.  He is passionate about this subject area and is a real pleasure to listen to when attending the auctions and the seminars.

He makes the auctions entertaining, but keeps everything in perspective in regards to price, time, and the presentation along with any of the video presentations are brilliant.

We came away from the cruise feeling very happy and confident about having learnt about many different painters.  We ended up spending approximately $10,000.00 AUD buying paintings from your company.

We love the auctions and want to reiterate the fact that Divan is an incredible auctioneer and is an asset to your company, as are the rest of the team.  It is a real team effort at the auctions and at the after auction meetings.

They all work incredibly long hours and very hard for Park West Gallery.

I hope that you can congratulate Divan and his team aboard the Voyager at a time convenient to you.  In the end we were arranging our onboard activities around the auctions, that is how excited we got about the auctions.  Even our 14 and 16 year old children got involved and terribly excited about them.

Divan also showed a devotion to ensuring that all his customers received the utmost in customer service when closing the various sales in accordance Park West’s pricings.

Dealing with the team, and especially Divan, was one of the major highlights of our cruise.

It is also wonderful to know that Park West Foundation supports young people in need.

 

Sincerely,

Glynis Martin

We purchased three art pieces during a cruise on the Sea Princess. They arrive here in Australia within the specified time. The pieces were not in the frames we requested. Upon advising Park West of this they resolved the matter promptly to our satisfaction. All up, the art pieces, service, delivery and packaging were excellent. Well done Park West and thank you.

I hope this e-mail will get to the right place.  I am in receipt of a beautifully framed work of art from Slava Ilyayev and I couldn’t be happier!  If it wasn’t for Lucy, it wouldn’t have happened.  I had been looking at this artist for three cruises.  I was afraid of too much color and we talked it through.  Then the usual frames would not work with my decor and Lucy found something that was perfect!   I also won a raffled piece. “It Gets Better” was my choice and I decided to have Park West Gallery frame that also, after Lucy found a beachy frame instead of the heavier gold frames that would not work for me.  Both pieces arrived in perfect condition – so well packaged!

The whole experience was SO MUCH FUN! Thank you Lucy and thank you Park West Gallery!

Just a quick note of sincere thanks for this weekend in NY.
First, our compliments to everyone on your staff, particularly Arturo, Auctioneer extraordinaire, oblivious Art lover (and rare individual – this comes from 2 lifetime world traveled NYC folks where we see it and call it straight up).
We look forward to purchasing additional works through Park West Gallery in the future.
Our Peter Max Sculpture (Aug 2016) blesses our home every day. Thanking him personally, albeit for a moment, completed our appreciation for his contributions to our world, humanity, and home. We are truly grateful for this opportunity.
As we close on our new house, we look forward to enjoying our recent acquisitions (Jan 2017) from this weekend with a lifetime of inspiration.
Outstanding call on representing Daniel Wall – well done.
“Sherlock” holds a special place beside our private hearth, and we save it for his presence, hopefully in the near future.
Again, our highest compliments to you and everyone at Park West Gallery!
With sincerest compliments to all, and best wishes for success to you Cole personally, to Arturo, and to everyone at Park West Gallery.
Thank you,

Jill Sen


I just called your 877 customer service number and had the good fortune of having Jessica answer. I called yesterday and didn’t get any information, so I called back this morning.  I had an issue with a missing poster and when she mentioned your policy… I LOST IT.  But, to her credit she did not.  She was amazing at keeping my temper at bay.  She is excellent on the phones and with handling my frustration.  She is the only bright spot in this debacle.

Please compliment her for me.
