“Gents: Galina & I wish to express a heartfelt & warm thank you for the wonderful evening of art showing you put on for her. The selection of art was spot on, the food & wine  was just right, the atmosphere was enjoyable and the turnout more than we could wish for. You did a splendid job of placing, showing & lighting her art. All in all, we could not have been happier with the whole affair.”


Ron & Galina (Las Vegas, NV)


“I would like to thank Scott and the staff at Art Encounter for the exceptional job you did on my framing and art appraisals. Your attention to detail and technical resources allowed for appraisals that were fair, timely and according to the market value. Your help in finding a new home for some of my collection was also done quickly and I am more than happy with the outcome. Your framing is spectacular and the frames chosen really did the job in making a masterpiece a real masterpiece! I look forward to working with you in the future and it was nice, after looking for several years, to find a gallery that took the time to do the job right and had the customers best interest in mind.”

Best Regards,

Eric C. (Reidsville, NC)

“The only man I trust with my art finds and appraisals, Brett K. Maly”

Art Encounter is the model for every other service-oriented business, if they are looking for the formula for success. From my very first visit, the professionalism of the entire staff has impressed me. I felt very confident that my artwork was in great hands. I was welcomed and cared for by the staff, and the service was prompt. Brett and his team displayed the utmost knowledge in the field of art, providing a very comprehensive appraisal of my work. But more than that, he went the extra mile to provide the best marketing advise for my work, which allowed for successful sales and purchases of future valuable original artworks that I treasure today. I trust his judgment greatly, and look forward to many years of working with such a wonderful source of knowledge and expertise.”

“A while back Brett gave me his opinion on a painting of Ada Lovelace that was selling for $20,000.  Brett gave me a value of $16,000.  On September 21, 2015 it sold for $16,250.  I just wanted you to know Brett that your appraisal skills are still spot on.”

Robert M.   (Redlands, CA)


“Brett has written a very useful, accessible book on what to look for while picking art. I had dabbled, but didn’t really know what I was doing. This book taught me a lot and solidified a few things that I thought, but wasn’t sure. Happy to learn not only general rules of value for broad categories of art, but also specific things like what an artist’s proof was, how to store your art, etc. The book is also concise and easy to read in a few short sessions. It’s written in the same friendly style that Brett uses on Pawn Stars. And the little caricatures are cute too!”



“Scott, It makes my heart smile to know that the Miro has a beautiful home in New York which is where my pa was born in 1924.  Thank you. It was a joy working with you.”

“Scott, we can’t thank you enough for your expert testimony and personal appearance in court on our behalf. We won!”

“Karen and I earnestly hope that no one else gets pulled into a scam like this, and if they do, they come to Art encounter seeking an expert opinion. We are very grateful for your expertise and professional assistance.”

“Fans of Rafael Nadal will be amazed and must experience this masterpiece visually in person to further take in the unique style form of creating the King of Clay in a 3D setting…”

Steve T. / Calabasas, CA


“As a huge fan of tennis, having a painting of Rafael Nadal is already special, but having Nadal’s signature on the painting and understanding Nadal’s connection to this particular piece adds to how remarkable this artwork really is…”

John N. / Vienna, VA


“It turns out that today is Christmas in our house. Just received VAMOS and it’s absolutely stunning. Thanks again. It was a pleasure doing business with you.”

Scott – I just wanted to thank you for taking my call about four weeks ago. I called because I was trying to get an accurate valuation of my print by Bev Doolittle, The Forrest Has Eyes. You were of immense help. Considering I have not been a customer of yours or made any purchases from your gallery, it was very kind of you to take the time to hear my anguished plea for help. I’m glad you offered a listening ear.

D. Nascimento / CA


Hi Brett – Thank you for your expertise and providing such a comprehensive report. My colleagues were impressed and we have added you to our list for art expertise.

We will keep in touch!’
