South x Southeast Photo Gallery showcases emerging and established photographers work, and houses the corporate headquarters of SxSE. My intent with South x Southeast from the beginning was to give emerging and established artists who are from, or shooting, the Southeast more exposure. South x Southeast Photo Gallery will help me in doing that more effectively.
South x Southeast Photo Gallery is housed in the corner space down this row of 1905 brick buildings in Molena, Georgia. The Downtown. I grew up here, moved away in 1974, and returned in 1997. Molena was a farming and cotton town originally. The railroad just across the way from the gallery was where my father as a child, and my beloved grandparents, watched FDR come by – on the back of the caboose, waving to the crowds, and sometimes stopping – on his way to the Little White House in Warm Springs.
The middle of the SxSE gallery space is where I bought a single-dip strawberry cone from Mr. Claude Daniels when this was his drug store in the ’60’s. In addition to being a beautiful space for a gallery, it holds a lot of good memories for me.
An hour south of Atlanta it was where my great-great grandfather moved his family during the Civil War from Atlanta. Circa 1860. He carved McCrary Road out of deep woods and red clay. We are the Piedmont – where the Appalachian Ridge spits out a few more low mountains. It is a beautiful area, and we hope you will come to see the exhibitions we host.
Molena consists of a Bed and Breakfast, a post office, a bank, a few churches, and about 400 people, most of whom know each other, and a good deal of whom are related. An hour south of Atlanta, an hour east of Columbus, and an hour west of Macon, we are conveniently located for quick getaways. Also, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is one hour away, up a two-lane road that ends at the 5th runway. Located nearby is the Little White House, the residence of President Franklin D. Roosevelt while he was being treated for polio in the town of Warm Springs, Georgia. Callaway Gardens, a 14,000 acre resort situated in the Appalachians foothills of Pine Mountain provides hiking, boating, cabin rentals, golf, and skiing – as well as photo ops at every turn – and is a short 30-minute drive. There are lovely Air BNB and VRBO options on farms and in other small towns close by. We look forward to welcoming you.
