About Dalton Gallery
Agnes Scott officially opened the Dalton Gallery in the Charles A. Dana Fine Arts Building on October 24, 1965. Named in honor of Harry L. Dalton and his wife, Mary Keesler Dalton, ’25, the gallery forms the central public area on the main floor of the building. The opening event featured an exhibition of fifty five paintings which Mr. and Mrs. Dalton had given to Agnes Scott to augment the college’s permanent art collection. Today, the Dalton Gallery operates as a teaching gallery alongside the Department of Art & Art History, as a way of recognizing the inherent expressive value of art, its enrichment of the human experience, and the dependence of global culture on visual literacy.
The Dalton Gallery is located in the Dana Fine Arts Building on the campus of Agnes Scott College, near the corner of East Dougherty and South McDonough streets.
Gallery hours for Fall 2020: The gallery is currently open for in person visits by appointment only Monday, Wednesday, Friday 12-5pm. Reserve your ticket here.
