JOSEPH LOFTON (b1923 - 2018) - What Now?

Opening: Saturday, December 5, 2020, 1pm – 5pm

On Exhibition: December 5, 2020 – January 16, 2021

JOSEPH LOFTON (1924-2018) brings an intercultural identity to his paintings. The artist moved to Mexico in the 1990s and became a part of a small community of artists that included ELIZABETH CATLETT and FRANCISCO MORA. His work provides a commentary rooted in the black experience while finding a spiritual bond between African and Mexican designs.

LOFTON honed his craft from 1948-1954 at the Art Students League and from 1971-72 at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. During that time he became a prolific artist, creating his works in a loft in lower Manhattan. His art has been shown at many exhibitions in New York City, Florida and Mexico.

Stella Jones Gallery is proud to be among the 250 Black owned small businesses across the U.S. that are being recognized by Beyonce’s 2020 directory.  We were selected as a 2018 Downtown NOLA Awards Honoree for bringing diversity to downtown New Orleans and are listed as a Cultural Landmark by “The Drum” newspaper and named by “Thrillist” as one of the four spots that have transformed the Arts District in NOLA’s hottest neighborhood. The gallery is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2021 and remains committed to educating collectors, museums and the community on the political, social and economic impact that African American Artists and their work have had.
