Allenton Gallery

Allenton Gallery

The Allenton Gallery is a lovely room off the Pavilion on the Main Level of the Durham Arts Council. Behind the glass doors set in the historic building facade, the room is shaped like a "T" with two small wings. With its soft neutral wall and carpet colorings and new art exhibits every few weeks, this unique space is beautiful for receptions, banquets, press conferences, parties, and reunions. Also, the Catering Center is just steps away. Use this space in conjunction with the Pavilion for dancing, music and cocktails to create a very special affair.
