Brian P., of Newport, Rhode Island, came to the ANTIQUE ROADSHOW with records of his great-grandfather, Charles Edward Minor. The collection, was valued by appraiser Gary Piattoni at between $2,500 and $3,500, he was a decorated African American seaman a mere 20 years after the abolition of slavery.
After retiring from the Navy at 52, Minor had the wherewithal to buy a four-bedroom home in Newport and to invest in the stock market. Again, Minor was ahead of his time. Says Brian, "Some of the stocks didn't pan out, but he was buying stocks a hundred at a time during the Great Depression. Black man or white man, that's something." True, yet it is all the more remarkable for a black man in a society that would be segregated by law for another 30 years.

Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. Raised in Whittier, California, he studied drawing and painting at California State University, Fullerton. Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia. He inspired extensive international press coverage in 1988 when he founded Kostabi World, his Manhattan art studio, which employs numerous painting assistants and idea people. Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene.
Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey.

Paul is a visual artist and activist whose paintings draw inspiration from his own experiences as a young gay man. Since graduating college in 2002, his artwork has become a vehicle for exploring and understanding his own journey, as well as developing a dialogue with other members of the LGBTQ community. Influenced by his own struggles as he came to terms with his sexual identity, he seeks to challenge social constructs that exist around sexual orientation and gender roles.
His career has included exhibitions in galleries throughout the United States, as well as publication in numerous art journals and anthologies. His work is collected by individuals from around the globe. In his role as the Associate Art Director for Dreamspinner Press and their young adult imprint, Harmony Ink Press, he has created over two hundred and fifty novel cover illustrations. He teaches community art classes for Stonewall Columbus. He has volunteered with the Kaleidoscope Youth Center, encouraging LGBTQ teens to use art as a means of self-exploration and expression. He is a co-founder of the You Will Rise Project, an organization that empowers those who have experienced bullying to speak out creatively through the language, visual, and performing arts.
Paul shares his life with husband, Dennis Niekro. They were married in a group ceremony with twenty-four other LGBT couples in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in June 2013. Together, they are committed to using their artistic talents to raise equality awareness.
This episode first aired in August, 2015. It was such a powerful interview that we wanted to air it again. Counselor Mandy Eppley speaks with visual artist Gypsy Hundley about how her creative spirit is reflected in her artwork and is her passionate way of serving in the world. Gypsy shares her heart-breaking and inspirational story of having to watch a loved one be sent to prison. From this tragedy she created amazing works of art that helped her, and others, to heal.
Gypsy Hundley has been painting full time for over 10 years. Her work has been displayed in galleries throughout the nation and purchased from thousands of spirits world wide. Starting out as an outsider/folk artist, Gypsy spent years traveling the unknown roads touring art shows and seeking galleries while living out of her van. Her tenacity to evolve and pursue an art career gave her strength to move forward. Her continual changes in her style has gained respect, recognition and admiration. When she speaks of her art, it is as if she's telling a story of an ancient love she has danced through life with, hand in hand.
You can find her artwork at www.gypsyhundleygallery.com.
Our guest this week, Susan Grief, tells us, “ I use all forms of the expressive/creative arts and the healing arts to help women and children find emotional freedom from anxiety,depression,trauma,grief, loss and learning disorders so they can move forward in their lives and have better relationships with themselves and others”. Susan,is the mother of four children each of whom had a form of dyslexia. This led her to teach each of them,”to learn creatively through art play,music and acting”. She then went to Columbia’s Teaching College to study the Multi-sensory approach to learning for the Dyslexic and she realized she was already applying this technique innately to her own children. Susanhas also studied dance,art,drama and photography.In 1998, she went along with her temple’s mission to a refugee camp in Macedonia and photographed the work being done to help the refugees. “I was able to capture the emotions in the faces of the refugees and my photos were published in newspapers and magazines and displayed in museums and galleries”.
Susan’s company is appropriately named, Art Mends!

Hoss’s work has been shown at several museums and galleries nationwide, and he has been a resident artist at Penland School of Crafts (NC) and at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (WI).

Listen to this entertaining interview as host Michael Harris interviews selling artist Betty Rhodes. Happiness and color are apparent in her art, reflecting her personality and the vibrant atmosphere of the Texas Hill Country. With an unerring eye, she brings an imaginative approach to her interpretation of the world around her. Her wide subject range including landscapes, florals, animals and abstracts. Rhodes delights in surprising art lovers, who may not always know where her fancy will turn next. Rhodes is represented by a number of art galleries in Texas and beyond, and has been shown internationally. She attended Hunters School of Art in San Antonio and has studied with many of the country’s leading artists, including Joseph Mendez, Scott Christensen, Matt Smith, Don Ward, Ray Vinella, and Ann Templeton.
