SoChi Gallery in Downtown Macon

SoChi Gallery in Downtown Macon

Macon, Georgia is a town with a lot of history, but many of the residents of Middle Georgia don’t get to experience it. The interstate veers people away, and years of negative talk about crime have also kept people back.

I’ve posted before about the work being done at the Fountain on Third and Cherry Street in Macon for the homeless. It is a wonderful avenue for people to become engaged in helping their neighbor, but also in seeing the beauty of Downtown Macon.

I just came back from a visit to downtown and met several people who were knowledgeable about the area. The Macon-Bibb County Convention and Visitors Center is a great place to go to get maps and information about things that may be happening  in or around downtown.

One of the places I spent some time was at the Sochi Gallery. They were having a First Friday showing, so I went to check it out. It’s a great little gallery that immediately take you off the street and into a serene space. If you have time go check it out, you’ll love it.
