Jackson Fine Art is a world-renowned gallery with a 33-year history of supporting artists and collectors. The gallery cultivates and guides both emerging and established collectors to the best fine art photography of the 20th and 21st century, across both traditional and innovative photo-based mediums. Working closely with collectors, curators, consultants, and designers, JFA provides expertise in a warm, welcoming space in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, GA. The gallery is led by Co-Owner & Creative Director, Anna Walker Skillman, and Co-Owner Andy Heyman, Founder, ASH IP& ASH Atlanta. The duo is celebrating twenty years of partnership in 2023.
In the spring of 2023, Jackson Fine Art expanded into a custom-built, 4000 square-foot gallery located directly across the street at 3122 East Shadowlawn Avenue. The new gallery retains the comfortable, home-like ambiance of the much-loved former gallery but now with expanded exhibition, office, inventory, library and meeting spaces to keep pace with the growing clientele and opportunity to exhibit large-scale works. The new space responds to the evolution of contemporary art. In addition to 9-12 exhibitions annually, Jackson Fine Art participates in international art fairs including: Paris Photo; The Photography Show (AIPAD) in New York; Art Miami; and Intersect Aspen. The gallery is a member of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) and Ms. Skillman is a former member of the board of directors.
The gallery has a storied history which began in 1990 when Jane Jackson opened Jackson Fine Art, specializing in 20th-century and contemporary photography. The gallery quickly became an important voice in the South as well as the international market. In March 2003, Ms. Jackson became the director of the prestigious Sir Elton John Photography Collection and sold the gallery to her director of six years, Anna Walker Skillman. Ms. Skillman, a loyal and active participant in the arts community for the last 25 years, graduated in Art History from the University of Georgia. She began her career working at the Haines Gallery, a leading contemporary art gallery in San Francisco, and directing Todd Murphy’s studio in Atlanta before joining Jackson Fine Art in 1998.
