LEONARD MAIDEN’s paintings offer a bit of whimsy that is anchored in the culture of living in the rural South. His figures are placed in an environment in which he is familiar; the artist grew up in the small city of Greenville, MS. The artist paints what he knows, the family farm growing cotton and watermelon. MAIDEN has a six year history with SJG, after being introduced by CHARLY PALMER.   This artist’s work can be found in many private collections across the country.

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.
