Kicking off this fall, Ponce City Market is hosting ATLANTA GALLERY COLLECTIVE, a pop-up gallery and cultural destination that will showcase the best of Atlanta’s contemporary art scene. The space will feature works from ten of the city’s top art galleries (below) and will take up residence on Ponce City Market’s second floor in the Central Food Hall. Opening weekend will be October 28th-29th, coinciding with Sunday Supper South—the annual James Beard Foundation benefit hosted by Chef Anne Quatrano at Ponce City Market.


The flagship exhibit will be a photography show of portraits of James Beard Award-winning and nominated chefs and mixologists from around the Southeast. Each was photographed by Erik Tanner, a Brooklyn-based, world-renowned photographer who has captured everything from the cover of TIME Magazine to Japanese VOGUE and subjects as far-ranging as Aziz Ansari to Radiohead. Talent featured in the exhibit at Ponce City Market include Hugh Acheson, Greg Best, Sean Brock, Ford Fry, Kevin Gillespie, Asha Gomez, Linton Hopkins, Meherwan Irani, Miles MacQuarrie, Hector Santiago, and Steven Satterfield.
