SOCO Gallery, founded by Chandra Johnson in 2015, is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. In eight years, SOCO Gallery has emerged as a dynamic contemporary art gallery in the southeast fully committed to a program of exhibitions and projects by acclaimed international and regional artists. The gallery strives to bring museum quality artists and artwork to their local community and is proud of their connection to the national and international art world.
