Customer Corner

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL VIDEO SERIES
At recent Park West Gallery art auction events, we asked our collectors to share their Park West Gallery experiences with us. Here’s what they had to say...

VIDEO 1 >> | VIDEO 2 >> | VIDEO 3 >> | VIDEO 4 >>

DEAR PARK WEST GALLERY...

"We had the best time and met the finest people, from the hotel staff to the Park West Gallery team, to the art collectors and the artists. We are so blown away by both the quality of the Park West Gallery program and the artwork. This was an opportunity of a lifetime."
—Angela B. | Harrogate, Tennessee

"...I can only say that your gallery delivers to its word 100% and I will have every confidence if any future dealings we may have with Park West Gallery. I would recommend your service to any person with complete confidence and on our next cruise, we will be keen to purchase artwork and relate our dealings with you as indication of your integrity and professionalism as art dealers."
—Mike R. | Brisbane, Australia

"[We] not only thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the wonderful presentations by the Park West Gallery team, but more importantly, the warm and caring demeanor of your associates and the overall flow of the week’s program. Ever since we started collecting serigraphs and lithographs on cruises in the early 1990s from Park West Gallery, our appreciation for all media and types of art has expanded exponentially." —Larry E. | Austin, Texas

"We just returned from a cruise out of New Orleans, where we enjoyed our time with your art auctioneer. [He] impressed us with his extensive knowledge of the modern masters, his professional staff, as well as his two very entertaining auctions. We appreciated [his] advice and assistance in selecting a new Tarkay watercolor for our collection. We look forward to our future interactions with Park West Gallery." —Jeff and Dawn R. | Murphy, Texas

"PARK WEST GALLERY... NOT JUST #1 IN MICHIGAN, BUT #1 IN INDIANA ALSO!!!!!!! If the SCAGLIONE FAMILY, complemented by the fine staff of auctioneers and auctioneer assistants, including the great art historian MORRIS SHAPIRO, had not had the intuitiveness, the guts, and the warm heart/concern for other people's art appreciation to venture forward and start this art gallery business, we all would not have ever been exposed to this great, uplifting emotional experience we enjoy everyday of our lives, in the midst of all the negativism that exists in the world. The inspiration, joy, and satisfaction we derive every day from gazing on our pieces is priceless. We can never thank you enough and words just become idle chatter after a while, so we will show our appreciation going forward with collecting more fine artworks exclusively from this fine family. Voted #1 art gallery in INDIANA, also." —Duane P. | Dubois, Indiana
