Father and son from Henrico share their love of – and talent for – art with celebrity audience
If you walk into the Virginia Governor's Office between now and March 31, you’ll see an exhibit of 15 paintings from a collection titled “Ingenious Artistic Minds,” or “I AM.” Among them are autographed portraits of professional tennis player Serena Williams, Martin Luther King III and legendary blues musician B.B. King.

The paintings represent a small sample of the lives they have touched, but you wouldn’t know that unless you know the Jones duo. > Read more.
