Jackson Fine Art owner an influential tastemaker for art collectors

The experience of entering Jackson Fine Art on Buckhead’s sleepy East Shadownlawn Avenue is for that reason, an utterly novel one. The manicured landscaping and vintage house, with its white-painted brick, twin peaked rooflines and Tudor-style black trim, is fairy tale charming.

Hanging on the walls, photographer Erik Madigan Heck’s romantic, color saturated image of a woman in a scarlet ball gown racing through a formal garden or his ecstatic shot of a brunette in a grove of forsythia offer windows into lush fantasy.

Sarah Meister, MoMA Photography Curator, Departs to Lead Aperture Foundation

Sarah Meister, a longtime photography curator at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, has been tapped to lead the Aperture Foundation, the storied photography nonprofit. The appointment comes after a year-long search to replace executive director Chris Boot, who after ten years at the helm is relocating to his native England.
