Quiet Reflection by Itzchak Tarkay

QUIET REFLECTION by Itzchak Tarkay


Over the past few years, the Print Club of Albany, a 200 member organization established in 1933, has been the recipient of over 11,000 pieces of fine contemporary artwork. This unique gift was made possible through the generosity of Albert Scaglione, CEO of Park West Gallery®. The diverse collection includes lithographs, silkscreen prints and etchings from some of the most notable artist's in contemporary art: Yaacov Agam, Marcel Mouly, Victor Vasarely and Fanch Ledan to name a few.

Print clubs in America became increasingly popular in the years of the Great Depression as a way for artists and art dealers to continue to sell art even while the majority of society could not afford expensive oil paintings. These clubs were some of the first places to make art accessible to collectors in an affordable way - on paper. It is in this spirit that Park West Gallery® has charitably contributed to the history and vibrancy of such organizations.

To date, Albert Scaglione has donated over $40 million worth of artwork to institutions like the Print Club of Albany and to several colleges and universities across the country.
