Stella Jones Gallery
Stella Jones Gallery welcomes you to New Orleans!
Stella Jones Gallery
For twenty five years, Stella Jones Gallery has played a pivotal role in highlighting the historical relevance of Black Art. Stella Jones, a black female owner, considers the gallery a “unicorn in the art gallery market,” showcasing local artists of color alongside masters in a downtown venue.
The gallery has remained committed from the beginning, to educating collectors, museums and the community on the political, social and economic impact of Black Artists and their art work. The gallery has become an important vehicle by which the black perspective is continuously presented.
Stella Jones News
The Petrucci Family Foundation Collection was started about a decade ago for the expressed purpose of lending work by African American artists to museums and galleries in support of an effort to expand the American Art canon. Their recent acquisition by Mapo Kinnord was originally commissioned by Stella Jones Gallery in 2016 for our 20 year anniversary exhibition, “INspired: 20 Years of African American Art.”
Richard Dempsey and Ron Bechet’s work will travel to The Art in Embassies exhibition for the Residence of Ambassador David and Mrs. Davis in Doha, Qatar. They are expected to be on display through 2025.
We have loaned Loïs Mailou Jones’ Mob Victim (Meditation) for the Southern/Modern traveling exhibition. It will be traveling through 2025, and we are thrilled that so many people will have an opportunity to view this important work along with many others. The schedule is as follows.
