The Heather James Fine Art gallery is an extraordinary gem tucked into a beautiful, unassuming corner of Jackson holding some of the world’s greatest artistic treasurers.
“At Heather James Fine Art you will get a rare look into art history’s past and present through a cross section of periods, movements and genres,” said Andrea Rico-Dahlin, the senior director at Heather James in Jackson. “From impressionism to contemporary, American and Latin American and everything in between, Heather James is committed to bringing in top work from artists across the globe.”
Celebrating 25 years with 10 national and international galleries, the Jackson gallery is currently featuring art by Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Elaine de Kooning and Willem de Kooning, among many others. Rico-Dahlin acknowledged that while Jackson is an epicenter of Western art, the community as a whole is diverse and attracts people from around the world.
“We feel fortunate to be able to offer a kind of diversity that is unique to this place,” she said.
“Over the course of those 25 years, the core principles and goals have been to bring incredible, museum-quality art to a variety of clients — from collectors and schoolchildren and people who want to learn more about specific works.
“Art shouldn’t be intimidating. Art was made for people to enjoy and a means to communicate thoughts and ideas, and that’s what we do. We are working to show what art is about and share it with everyone. That’s the fun part: getting to share. This is a space for everyone.”
The Jackson gallery is set up so visitors may “choose their own adventure.” Staff are on hand to discuss hanging works, and a QR code accompanies many of the pieces for more online learning. There is also a large, touch screen where visitors and prospective clients can browse works of art and watch educational videos.
While Heather James Fine Art prides itself on providing rare gems and unmatched art history collections, the gallery has spent decades working with collectors to accomplish a variety of goals.
“We have incredible clients,” said Rico-Dahlin. “We work with many different people to achieve different goals, including private collectors who are building a specialty collection, collectors who are trying to find pieces to help build a gap in their collection and then collectors who see art as mean to diversify their investments.”
Heather James Fine Art is located at 172 Center St., just north of Town Square in Jackson.
The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Sunday and Monday. ￼
