Testimonials

Hi Mitch!! Love your show! Never miss it! I have fallen in love with KEF art!! I purchased my first original hand painted screen print on your show this last Saturday night!! Have 6 EA’s and 1 reg screen print.
Keep up the great work!!
I happened upon your show by accident about a year ago. You have educated me so much on art history. I enjoy the bios of the early artists.

I can’t thank you enough Jennifer, that’s incredible news! I can’t wait to see hubbys face when he opens the artwork! It will no doubt lift his spirits. It certainly has lifted mine! That’s just Incredible! Thank you again.

I will forward all quotes to you once received.

Thank you, especially to you and the entire team, for all of your help, support, care and assistance.

‘For the past year we have only purchased art from you and Ray. Really enjoy you guys.’

‘I will never forget when my KEF! arrived. To see it in person took the artwork to an entirely different level. The detail, color scheme and overall design is mesmerizing. I love how fluid the lines are and how they lead to drip lines. They remind me of an ending to a good book. Additionally, please give a shoutout to the operators. Every time I call they are polite, knowledgeable, and provide a top notch customer experience. You have a great team there and it shows. You can tell them, Thanks!” ‘

To Richard and the team. Folk watch your show to purchase Art.
However, many are inspired to watch to learn, to be informed.
As a result of your Show teachers of my 5 yr old granddaughter’s class are now educating the children on the masters of art.
Monet was last week.
Pablo Picasso is on their agenda this week.
Thank you Richard and the team – your influence is far reaching.

I very much enjoy our comms and appreciate the time you give me. The staff at AVC are some of the nicest people I have dealt with. Although I’m running out of wall space lol.

My wife and I try to watch all 4 shows over the weekend and we learn so much.

‘Hi Mitch, my name is Michelle and I’ve been watching AVC for about a year now and have bid on and won several pieces. I went to college to become an interior designer and the design school closed the next year. I went on my own to do design work and my owned a business for many years. Never have I learned so much from any professor as I have from you as a host. You and Ray have taught me quite a bit. I love the stories you tell and the photos you share of yourself. It’s very touching and puts a personal warm spin to the show!! Thank you so much for giving us something to watch and enjoy! My best to you!!’

Hi Richard, Rachel, Lucy, Jennifer and the art concierge team
I want to congratulate you all for a spectacular show, that I could not turn away from for all 4 1/2 hrs that you were on air last night. Richard was looking fine in his purple suit.
I have been so inspired that I too have started in a group, learning the art of lithography to bring my artwork to life.
Keep up the good work and many thanks

Hi Mitch,
Welcome to IG! It is great to connect with you.

On Monday you asked, “What draws you to KEF!?”

I will never forget when my KEF! arrived. To see it in person took the artwork to an entirely different level. The detail, color scheme and overall design is mesmerizing. I love how fluid the lines are and how they lead to drip lines. They remind me of an ending to a good book.

I enjoy watching the weekend line-up and leaning how art has evolved and impacted society.

Best,
Kate

‘I love the art on the show. Your stories about the art and the artists, really get me engaged. Thank you.’ 

Dave B.
Love the show and your knowledge of the art. Keep up the great work. Thank you
Gerald, 09.08.21

I am really drawn to Kef’s work because it is not political (some political art work is great in its own right) and makes me have a sense of calm.

We have 5 Kef’s in our art collection and love them all! They are fabulous additions to our home and make me smile!

Thank you and Ray for all of the information that you provide on your shows!

Sincerely,
Jenniver Murray

‘Mitch, thank you for your very pleasant ways on TV. Always saying “please” and so polite to your co-workers. I won’t bother to discuss my pain with you, but I just want you to know I always feel better when I watch your show.’ 

James B.

We are loving your artwork. We just purchased 3 screen prints from The Fine Art Auction!!! My husband is an artist/ painter as well.

Katie, 09.08.21, Your Content Goes Here

‘I love watching you guys, I didn’t give a crap about art till year ago. I was looking for something on tv, all my other shows were not on Monday night. I came across you by accident, started listening and said, “this dude is into his job and breaks down what a original, serigraph, lithograph, artist proof, signed, unsigned significance and etc”. Lol, I’ve been hooked ever since. We country folk, Lol, love the explanation of exactly what were bidding on and possible future value. Great job, and I mean the whole staff there too. I’ve learned more from you than the last 55 years of my life about art. Lol, I appreciate it!!!’

My order was delivered today.

The picture was extremely well packed and arrived in perfect condition.

I am surprised how quickly the package arrived considering the postal delays due to Covid.

I am very pleased with the print and also with the
frame.

Thanks very much from a happy customer.
