inception of Stella Jones
Gallery in July, 1996, was the realization
of a dream. Long time friend and art historian, Dr. Samella
Lewis was an inspiration and serves as consultant and curator.
The gallery provides a venue for artists of the African
diaspora to exhibit superior works of art.
The gallery fulfills its educational goals through lectures,
panel discussions, intimate gallery talks and exhibitions
with artists in attendance.
Jones Gallery takes very seriously the responsibility,
of providing collectors, both private and corporate, with
art that is high in aesthetic quality and strong in investment
potential. The gallery is equally motivated to raise the
aspirations of African American youths by providing them
with a better understanding of their heritage through the
Jones Gallery endeavors to be an important site
of both cultural and economic development in the local,
national, and international arts community.
