Leiper’s Fork, TN Gets New Fine Art Gallery

The quaint village of Leiper’s Fork, TN, now has a new fine art gallery. The Upstairs Gallery is located at 4208 Old Hillsboro Road, Suite 6 in Leiper’s Fork, TN. The Gallery’s hours are 10 to 5 P.M. Wednesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 P.M. on Sunday.

Bob Jones, Owner/Director of Upstairs Gallery, Leiper's Fork, TN

After a lifetime of experience in all phases of art, artist Bob Jones has opened Upstairs Gallery and invited some of his friends to join with him in the Gallery. He served as Graphic Design Director for Thomas Nelson Publishing of Nashville, TN, for more than 20 years. Jones also designed album covers for Sun Records of Nashville for many years. In the beginning, he studied art at Harris School of Advertising Art.

Jones’ pen and ink originals depicting the famous and the not-so-famous exhibit a meticulous attention to detail. “The pen and ink medium allows me to create textures and detail in a wide range and lighting that can be striking in contrast or quite subtle,” he says.

“Black and white is my focus,” says Jones. “It is elegant, clean, and honest. Many people think of pen and ink as a rigid and hard-edged medium, but I find that to be untrue. With patience, an artist can create an image whose range of effects is unsurpassed.”

Bob Jones, Spring Hill, TN Pen and Ink Artist
Tommy Thompson, Florence, AL Oil Artist of Landscapes
Michelle Rideout, Brentwood, TN Artist in Oil, Watercolor, and Pastel of Landscapes
