The Magic of the Masters
Memorial Day Weekend
Gallery owners Josh and Kim Miller pose with St. Joes Head Coach Phil Martelli and his wife Judy during the exhibition of original lithographs, etchings, and linocuts by Rembrandt van Rijn, Pablo Picasso, and Marc Chagall.
Coaches Vs. Cancer Auction
Master artists weren’t the only ones garnering attention at Ocean Galleries over Memorial Day Weekend. Renowned college basketball coaches tried to steal the spotlight away from Chagall, Rembrandt, and Picasso for a worthy cause.
Along with the Masters, Ocean Galleries hosted a charity auction that benefited the non-profit organization Coaches vs. Cancer. Phil Martelli, head coach of the St. Joseph’s University Hawks men’s basketball team, served as auctioneer. Joining Martelli were Fran Dunphy, head coach of the University of Pennsylvania Quakers and Jack Kraft, former coach of the Villanova Wildcats.
The exquisite item up for bid was an original color lithograph by Marc Chagall titled “The House in My Village,” which was generously donated by Ocean Galleries. The winning bidder was Cape May County resident Andy Moceri.
Coach Martelli, who guided the 2003-2004 Hawks to an undefeated record – the school’s first-ever number one seed in the NCAA tournament and advancement to the Elite Eight, has been involved with Coaches vs. Cancer for several years. The program unites the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) in the fight against cancer. Since its inception in 1993, Coaches vs. Cancer has raised more than $22 million to benefit ACS’s efforts in cancer research, advocacy, education and patient services.
