Margie Lopez Read paintings, and or prints of paintings are traded for a check made out to a worthwhile organization that the buyer and Margie agree upon.
Donation Art Project. Donating all the proceeds of her art to a non-profit.
The ‘trades’ of her paintings have raised funds for many programs including ‘Doctors Without Borders’, ‘UNICEF’, scholarship funds, food for children programs, athletics for the disabled, animal protection programs and other humanitarian aid programs through the world. And it seems to be growing…
"Art is life and not worth much unless it helps make the world just a little bit better in one way or another."
Art has been important to Margie her whole life, influenced in large part by her grandmother Margie Cooper, who was an accomplished painter. Because of her (also her namesake), her parents allowed her significant freedom to partake in all things creative. Margie Lopez Read indulged in a variety of media, techniques and styles – traditional, contemporary, surreal, pop -- all that was around and developing in the 60’s and 70’s. She also did a fair amount of illustration, cartoons and silk screen art with social and political commentary for high school and university newspapers and for movements such as United Farm Workers.
Over the years, she has participated in various art events, both juried and open. Margie has won some ribbons here and there, and has sometimes displayed her work in art galleries. She states, "All of that is fun, but I want my art to do more. You see, I believe that art is at its best when it teaches, records a memory, tells a story, or provokes thought. It is better still if it can be used to raise funds for worthwhile non-profit programs that improve the condition of our world."

About Mann :
Thomas Mann, an icon of the American Craft Jewelry movement, a full-time practicing professional artist for over 40 years, describes himself as an artist working in the medium of jewelry and sculpture. He works with a variety of metals, thinking of them as painters think of their palettes — Each metal having its own color and luster. Inspired by parts from machines, electronic instruments, costume jewelry, and old postcards & photos, Mann’s recurring but always changing parts give his work its storytelling quality and theatricality. He calls this design vocabulary, which combines industrial aesthetics and materials with evocative themes and romantic imagery, "Techno-Romantic".
Thomas Mann lives and works in New Orleans where he oversees a jewelry design and production studio, a sculpture studio, a gallery and most recently a teaching space.
About the Business:
Thomas Mann Design, Inc. employs 10 people to make and market the work designed by Thomas Mann & sold through various wholesale and retail opportunities. Having represented hundreds of metal artists, Tom's retail gallery, Thomas Mann Gallery I/O (Insight-full Objects), celebrated its 25th year in 2013 .

In light of the recent Spaceship 2 disaster, hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss the past and future of space toursim. The discovery of the oldest map of the cosmos is a reminder that we have been pursuing the great Out There for a very long time. Some are now asking whether space tourism can survive. Have we reached the end, or have we even made it to the beginning yet?
PLUS: Who is really going to steal your job? (Maybe not a robot.)
And on a completely unrelated topic (or is it?) can you ever really know an extraterrestrial?
Bonus topic, time permitting: Do we need more big data hype?
What came first – the photographer or the physician? In the case of neurologist Dr. Noah Gilson, it was photography. At the age of 14 he was given his first SLR camera with black and white film that he processed in the basement darkroom of his home. He won some local photo competitions and honed his skills in a high school photography course. He considered pursuing photography professionally but decided to become a doctor. When his darkroom was stolen out of his college apartment, he focused all attention on pre-med studies and photography was on indefinite hold. But after a 25 year hiatus during which he became a doctor, husband and father, photography returned to Dr. Gilson’s life. The darkroom was soon a thing of the past as he quickly became enchanted with the superiority of digital photography in every aspect of image production. Gradually he filled the walls of his home and office with photos. He uses his photos to calm patients nervous about being in a doctor’s office or in the hospital. His Healing Images are intended to teach people to slow down and take a break from their frantic lives. They invite us to examine at our surroundings and to marvel at the miracle of the mundane. The underlying theme in Dr. Gilson’s photos is the concept of mindfulness which encourages us to treasure every experience and all of its sensations. Many neurologic patients are very ill and the news Dr. Gilson gives families is sometimes grim. Calming pictures placed on the wall of the family consultation room provides him the courage and composure to say what needs to be said as sensitively as possible. Dr. Gilson’s photos are in local galleries and permanent displays at Monmouth Medical, Jersey Shore, and Riverview Medical Centers. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.
On February 25, Swann Galleries conducted their 15th annual auction of Printed & Manuscript African Americana. Highlights ranged from material on slavery and abolition to artifacts of the modern Civil Rights movement, and an important archive on African-American Art.
The auction’s top lot was an immense archive of research material amassed by art historian James Amos Porter that consisted of thousands of items including photographs, letters, exhibit catalogues, art books, flyers, and bibliographical data on important African-American artists. Porter was an artist, and head of the Art Department at Howard University for more than 40 years. He is well known for his groundbreaking text, Modern Negro Art, 1943, which placed these artists’ contributions into the broader context of American and modern art. The archive sold to a major university for $50,400.
Another highlight of the sale was a rare surviving poster carried by a striking sanitation worker in Memphis, TN. Martin Luther King Jr. marched with the strikers in April 1968 shortly before he was assassinated. Bidding for the printed placard that says I AM A MAN, opened at $9,000, and rapidly rose to a final price of $40,800.
