The Smell of the Oil Paint, the Roar of the Crowd

Park West Gallery, cruise art auctions at sea, art auctioneer
Written by John S., Art Director for Park West Gallery Cruise Auctions at Sea

Out of all the things that are said to me as an Art Director for Park West Galleries aboard cruise ships, one sticks out in my mind more than any other. Without fail, almost every week, it crops up in conversation between Park West Gallery collectors and myself. In some form it comes out as, “Wow, what a great job this is!” It is a simple enough statement and is easy enough to respond to on a very superficial level, but there is much more to it. People of all ages, art backgrounds, and nationalities say it, with a hint of jealousy or admiration in their eyes at times, as though they would trade a limb for a chance at such a profession.

In response, I smile and agree, usually throwing in something about being one of the luckiest people in the world. But after months of this same repartee with a hundred different faces, it really does make you think. At face value, this career path does look like a dream come true, ripe with travel and exciting new relationships every week, while being surrounded by world-class artwork every day. That is the surface level that all cruise ship guests immediately see, but in truth, there is much more to this life, both positive and negative...

Alfred Gockel: Intention and Discovery

Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection, Alfred Gockel
“Blowin’ the Blues” by Alfred Gockel
Park West Gallery Collection
Written by Park West Gallery Director Morris Shapiro

Like a gifted musician, Alfred Gockel approaches his canvas.

Just as in Jazz, when he begins there is an underlying skeletal structure for the composition, but it must be fleshed out through instinct, sensitivity, experience and the ability to always be attuned to the “moment.” Musicians create the form of music through pitch, harmony, melody, rhythm, repetition, tone and dexterity with their instrument, honed by countless hours of practice and performance. The visual artist’s formal tools are equivalent: line, color, composition, spatial and proportional relationships, texture and surface and a mastery of draftsmanship gained only through the practiced repetition of capturing in two dimensions what eye perceives in three.

For centuries, philosophers, historians, critics, artists and musicians themselves have pondered the relationship between the aural (musical) and the visual arts. Alfred Gockel just lives it...

Google Launches the Art Project

Take a trip around the world’s greatest museums and discover the masters.

Whether you’re visiting a museum, attending a Park West Gallery cruise art auction event, or (if you’re lucky enough) in the comfort of your own home, there’s no experience like spending time looking at your favorite works of art in person. But you can’t always travel around the world, and even when you can, sometimes the works you go to see are unavailable for public viewing.

The Park West Gallery bloggers have spent the morning playing around with the Google Art Project, a new website that allows the public to access some of the world’s greatest masterpieces, from anywhere in the world...
