Semans Gallery

Semans Gallery

Semans Gallery is located off the Pavilion balcony on the Upper Level of the Durham Arts Council. By taking the large winding staircase in the Pavilion to the balcony, you enter Semans Gallery through a pair of large glass doors. This space is shaped like a T, and has soft neutral wall and carpet colorings, as well as rotating year round art exhibits. This space also has a large centerpiece window that faces the twinkling lights dangling from the Pavilion rafters creating a very magical, festive atmosphere for Semans Gallery. Extremely versatile, this space is beautiful for receptions, banquets, press conferences, parties, and reunions. Use this space for dinners, weddings and private affairs along with the Pavilion for dancing, cocktails and partying into the night.
