  IN THE NEWS...
   
We were honored to loan "Mob Victim" by Lois Mailou Jones, for the Paris exhibition "The Color Line" at the  Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac Museum. The exhibition was comprised of over 200 objects and traced the origins of the "color line," a term referring to racial segregation in America after the abolition of slavery in 1865. "Mob Victim" was hung in one of the most chilling sections of the exhibition, which dealt with the practice of lynchings, and highlighted the anguish of a shackled man minutes before his death.

We are happy to see Elizabeth Catlett Residence Hall, named after distinguished alumna Elizabeth Catlett, who lived off-campus because the school did not permit blacks to live in the dorms. Despite the commute, Catlett was among three UI students to earn the first Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees in the United States in 1940. She also was the first African-American woman to receive an MFA. While at UI, her roommate was novelist and poet, Margaret Walker and she studied with American artist, Grant Wood. CLICK TO READ

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.
