Article in Inside Business: The Art of Change

Louis Jones got his start in the art business long before he understood the significance of building a career.

Jones is one of the family owners who runs the Jones Art Gallery in Virginia Beach, which has been a pillar in the community since the 1950s.

Recently, the Jones family settled into a new space at the Town Center in Virginia Beach, where they sell only family works. The new space is 2,000 square feet.

The gallery was located in a different space at Town Center for seven years, at 4549 Virginia Beach Blvd. The new, larger space is at 184 Central Park Ave., right across the street from Ruth’s Chris Steak House and the fountain plaza.

“We’ve gotten bigger and better, and moved right into the center of Town Center,” Jones said. “We’ve gotten twice as big as before.

“Give us earthquakes, hurricanes, a recession and we’ll double up.”
