Add these evolving gallery spaces in Atlanta to places you must visit: Jackson Fine Art, Jennifer Balcos Gallery and Johnson Lowe Gallery.
Jackson Fine Art Showcases Leading Photographers
Following 33 years in its iconic Shadowlawn Avenue setting, Jackson Fine Art moved a few doors down to a custom space by Siegel Construction with Fathom Architecture. Augmented square footage allows longtime director Anna Walker Skillman to better showcase leading photographers—Andrew Moore, Bruce Weber, Shanequa Gay and Masao Yamamoto among them.

Jennifer Balcos Gallery Represents Boundary-Pushing Talents
Earlier this year, Jennifer Balcos Gallery relocated to chic new digs on Roswell Road, mere minutes from Chastain Park. Designer-turned-art dealer Balcos represents a diverse group of boundary-pushing talents—from Charlotte fiber artist Kenny Nguyen to Bordeaux-based abstractionist Hayden Alexander Rearick. A solo show for Atlanta photographer Rob Brinson opens in August.

Johnson Lowe Gallery Proactively Courts Black Talent
On Miami Circle, the local institution founded by Bill Lowe in 1989 just rebranded to Johnson Lowe Gallery under his protégé, Donovan Johnson, with a celebratory spring relaunch. Assisted by Mati Gibbs, Johnson directs the gallery with a fresh outlook—proactively courting Black artists and collectors who comprise the city’s majority and its influential future power players.
