Ampersand, the local Macon artist guild and art gallery, is transitioning into a new location due to expansion.

The new guild hall and art gallery will be located at 382 Cherry Street in Downtown Macon.

The guild will be moving into the old Children’s Museum, which closed in 2014.

On Aug. 30, Ampersand locked its doors for the last time at its original location on 5th street to focus on this transition.

As of now, the Guild said to look to their Facebook page for any news regarding the move.

The guild’s website currently says that it is closed for relocation and to “keep watch for updates.”

Since August, Ampersand has been crowdfunding for their new move through

They note that donations will go towards making the new guild hall as much of home as their previous location.

As of last weekend the guild has raised $585 out of a goal of $6000.

In a promotional video shared through social media, Ampersand said that the new location on the corner of Cherry Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will offer more space for their creative members to display, make and sell their works.
