About the Artist, Margie Lopez Read
Art has been important to me for as long as
I can remember, and I have been doing paintings
since I was 10 years old. I am a product of
the 50’s and 60’s, and was influenced
by many artists contemporary to those days.
I believe that art is at its best when it teaches,
records a memory, tells a story, or provokes
thought. For this reason, almost all of my pieces
are accompanied with a story. My goal is to
use art as a means to raise funds for programs
that improve the condition of our world.
Art is life and not worth much unless it helps make things just a little bit better in one way or another.
In my Donation Art transactions, I trade original paintings and or can trade excellent quality prints made from those same paintings. Some of my works are 3-D, and the originals are traded for a donation. On occasion, I work with Jay Schreider who transforms pieces of wood into creative shapes for my paintings. Those are also available for trade with a check made out to a worthwhile organization.
Over the years this has included raising funds to help Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, and other humanitarian aid programs through the world. I also trade my works for donations to education scholarships and other local programs where I live and work: El Dorado County (California), Lane County (Oregon) and also in Moab (Utah).
