What Park West Gallery Customers are Saying...

Thank you Park West Gallery! I am very excited to be winning a work of art by Thomas Kinkade. He is my favorite artist. I have several of his pieces and can’t wait to add “Stillwater Bridge” to my collection.

Even though I have not been to your Michigan location, I have been to your auctions on several cruises and have totally enjoyed them. They are always a “must do” for both me and my husband.

Anytime I have had to contact the gallery, your staff has always been professional, knowledgeable, and very friendly. I look forward to a continued relationship.

Hello Mike,

Thank you for your help. You are informative, patient, and very professional. Your customer service skills are commendable. Park West has spoiled me and will have my future business.

This new "sales" technique is a good idea (4 for $$$). In my opinion, most women want to own a piece of art but cannot afford to especially in the current financial times. Art is a luxury but these prices are affordable. It "wets" a person's appetite for future purchases.

I am enjoying my Kinkade purchased earlier this year and the frame is beautiful.

Please forward this email to the sales manager as well as the gallery's public website. I am very pleased with your service and Park West. 

Kindest Regards, Ruth

We have traveled with Carnival many times and have always enjoyed your auctions. We have purchased something almost every trip. Our latest trip was on the Triumph this past January. Your staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They located a Thomas Kinkade that my husband had been wanting for a long time, which we purchased. 

Thank you, Patricia May

I wanted to say thank you so much due to your being prompt, efficient, knowledgeable, informative, detailed and professional; you were able to keep me well informed and able to find the painting for me. Due to these qualities you possess, you were able to assist me not only back in 2008 (Thomas Kinkade) but also now in 2009 (Csaba Markus).

You went beyond the extra mile and I thank you Angela!!!

Luis,

Thanks again for all you help and assistance. It is truly gratifying to know how highly customer service ranks with both yourself and Park West Gallery. We look forward to doing business with you for many years to come on all of our upcoming cruises.

Also, the fifteen(15) pieces of artwork (Kinkade, Metlan and Peter Max) we have purchased from Park West look terrific in our home and we have received many compliments on them. Both the artwork itself and the framing.

Thanks again for all of your hard work and assistance with our account. 

Best Regards Always, Dan Witt

Hello. My fiancée and I along with my parents recently went to 3 Park West auctions held on board the Carnival Glory during a 7 day cruise of the Caribbean. I had been to a Park West auction on a cruise last year but did not intend on bidding. This time around, I was determined to attend and bid and buy. I want to congratulate Park West for having such a wonderful collection of art as well as such wonderful staff. The Park West staff on the Glory was extremely knowledgeable, personable and informative. The auctioneer, Martin, was a joy to work with and provided information about every piece on the block. Martin’s assistants, Roxanna (his fiancée) and Cornelia were equally knowledgeable and pleasant. But it was Martin’s special flair that helped me to enjoy the auctions so much more. “I’m just sayin!” That was Martin’s trademark saying during the auctions. “Trust me!” Because of Martin, my fiancée and I purchased an Alexander Chen, 3 Emile Bellet pieces, and we collected a few free pieces (Krasnyansky ) thanks to raffles. My parents purchased a Thomas Kinkade, a Scott Jacobs piece, a set by Schaefer & Miles and a Max! Yes a Peter Max. I am so jealous of them. And it’s all because of Martin. Thanks again Martin, Roxanna, Cornelia and Park West. 

Brian Loomis - Davenport, FL

I enjoyed every event I attended and the individuals who ran the auction were amazing and helpful. I bought a Kinkade and others. The presentation was great and easy to understand. I knew a little about art, but never made an investment until I attended a Park West auction. I have become an art collector and my wife enjoyed every minute. The Park West Staff was great and knowledgeable. Thank you for the memories........ 

Javier Peña - Worcester, MA

We were on the Carnival Ecstasy and went to the seminar on Art. We were so impressed with the staff and the knowledge that they gave my husband and myself that we purchased several pieces of Thomas Kinkade and Schaefer Miles.

Christian, Diana, Michelle, and Raul were very helpful and made us feel like part of the family of art. We enjoyed the seminar and auction. They spent a lot of time with us in helping with the purchases and framing of the art work. We are looking forward to receiving our pieces that we bought and received free from the auction.

They made our first time on a cruise and purchasing art very exciting and we’ll be looking forward to our next cruise. We would like to tell Park West Gallery that the staff at the art gallery on the Ecstasy was GREAT and we felt like they were part of our family. Thanks for letting us become a part of the Art collectors. 

Carolyn S. - Huntington, TX

We were lucky enough to be invited to a cruise of Alaska by Park West Gallery and there are no words to fully describe the great experience we shared. Park West staff was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, thoughtful, accommodating and sensitive to any request we made. The quality of the artwork was exceptional and as an added bonus we met two world renown artists. When you add to the above the beautiful cruise ship and being a part of a very friendly fun group, it made for one of our best vacation. Thanks for including us in that wonderful event. 

Edmond and Susan H.

Greetings from the beautiful city of St. Augustine, Florida. We have been Park West clients since 1996 and own a staggering 17 pieces of art from the auctions! We have found the Park West staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable about the works they are selling. We always enjoy your stop at the Marriot of Sawgress!! Keep up the good work! 

Mary & Joe L.

Hello, My name is Venice and I am a new art collector thanks to a wonderful team on the Carnival Dream Park West Art Gallery. These wonderful people are Amy A. & Chris M. and Bill & Yuki B. They were able to answer the many questions that I had as it was the first time I had ever been to an art auction, along with helping me in purchasing my new works of art. You have a fantastic team who know what they are talking about. From the terrific experience that I had, I know that when I choose to buy art work again it will be from Park West Galleries. You should be very proud to have such an amazing team working for you on the Carnival Dream. Thank you for the beautiful art works that you provide in your galleries. 

Venice B.

Just wanted to write and say THANK YOU. This was my first experience with an art auction, although I have taken 11 Carnival cruises. Your staff on the ship was very nice and professional, and the process was friendly and efficient. My artwork was very carefully packaged and in excellent condition when received. I will certainly check out your auctions on future cruises. 

Jeanette D.

Just wanted to send a quick note on how much fun my wife and I had purchasing our artwork at the auction on our ship. I've seen your auctions on previous cruises, but this is the first time I have attended and participated. Both Derek and Bruce made the event fun and were very helpful with the many questions that I had.

Now the only thing I am looking forward to is getting my artwork and putting it up in my game room. 

Thanks, Phil M. - Fort Lee, VA

I wanted to provide feedback on the wonderful experience my wife and I had during recent at sea auctions with a particular auctioneer. We cruised the week of February 14 onboard the Liberty of the Seas. I have attended a few auctions over the years but have not been particularly interested in art. Our first day at sea my wife and I attended the onboard art auction hosted by Jacqueline W. That is where my art adventure began. We attended all the auctions during our cruise and I have Jacqueline to thank for that. She kept her auction moving and yet involved the audience with interaction and providing an education on the artists and their art that she was selling. She made the auctions one of the highlights of our cruise. When boarding the ship my wife and I had no intention of purchasing any art. By the time the cruise was over we had purchased 5 pieces! I feel you are very fortunate to have someone the caliber of Jacqueline representing your organization, the feedback can only be positive. I look forward to expanding our new art interest and continuing my relationship with Park West. Should we be fortunate to run into Jacqueline again on our next cruise that would be something that would make our cruise even more rewarding.

Chris, I wish to thank you for the wonderful cruise last week on the Norwegian Dawn. I enjoyed everything about the cruise....loved the accommodations, the Park West hospitality and the opportunity to view/purchase wonderful pieces of art. I am grateful for the invitation to this VIP function and sincerely appreciate all you and the Park West staff did to make the experience so enjoyable. It is always lots of fun to meet and get to know the Park West artists too. 

Dave N.

The Art Gallery staff on the Norwegian Gem was outstanding. I have been to several art auctions in the past and was always satisfied with the service I got but this time they went above what was necessary to do their job. They were really informative and made you feel like you were making a purchase from an old friend. This was the first time my husband had been to an art auction and he was quite skeptical in the beginning. They not only won him over but he made several purchases on his own. I would really like to thank them for making our cruise one to remember. 

Sincerely, Peggy H. - Waterloo, IN

The picture was delivered today in good order. I want to thank you sincerely for all your consideration and help. Again, a thank you seems so little in expressing how much I appreciate what you have done; it is a wonderful feeling knowing a company will stand behind their products. I certainly would not be afraid to do business with Park West again.

While I am very excited about receiving "Venice Canal" from the Kinkade contest, I am even more excited about being able to maintain our relationship with Park West Gallery. My wife and I have been enthusiastic customers since 2005 and have won nearly as many pieces from the numerous auctions we have attended as those that we have purchased. However, the last few years have been financially tough and we have not been able to purchase any items. Winning this contest brings back a little of the feeling of waiting for the pieces we purchased at auction while at sea.  

Best Regards, Michael
