Thomas Mann opened Gallery I/O in New Orleans in 1988 after developing the gallery concept over his many years of work and travel in the design industry. In addition to housing the largest collection of jewelry by Thomas Mann, Gallery I/O offers a variety of contemporary jewelry, home accessories and unique gifts by dozens of artists.

Gallery I/O, which stands for “Insight-Full Objects”, offers work that combines elements of the American Craft movement, European design aesthetic and traditional fine arts to yield a unique visual idiom — Some are decorative, some are functional, but all are engaging and invite new understanding of how craft, art and design are experienced.

Gallery I/O also hosts several themed one of a kind group shows a year, inviting artists and designers to explore new ideas about the use and expressive possibilities of form and materials. With annual opening celebrations in conjunction with New Orleans’ chicest street party, Art for Arts’ Sake in the Fall and The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in the Spring, Gallery I/O exhibitions are not to be missed.

Below is a list of some of the artists who have participated in the annual exhibitions at Gallery I/O as well as artists whose work is in our currently held inventory.
