Art Galleries at Sweet Briar College

In 1984, Sweet Briar College renovated the 1906 former Refectory (now known as the Anne Gary Pannell Center) to house the school’s art collection and art library, to provide an exhibition hall, and to provide offices and classrooms for the art history department. Pannell Gallery also functions as a venue for lectures, classes and other educational programs and public events.
