Stella Jones Gallery's
20th anniversary exhibition "INspired: Celebrating 20 Years of African American Art" Included in Art Culture Type's Latest Art News.


The 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.

Stella 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 visual arts

Stella Jones Gallery endeavors to be an important site of both cultural and economic development in the local, national, and international arts community.
