|The Edwards Art Gallery at Holderness School is an historic and beautiful building situated in the center of campus. The gallery, which was part of an extensive 1980's renovation of the original Holderness School gymnasium (circa 1917), is now part of the Carpenter Center for the Arts. Judith Solberg, in her book, "This Tender Vine," called the renovation "a clever repurposing of existing space...and a new era for the arts at Holderness School."|
The Carpenter Center for the Arts and the Edwards Art Gallery ensure that Holderness art and music students have access to a wonderful home for creativity, one that is dynamic and inspiring, complete with, lab, recording, and fine arts work spaces, as well as diverse exhibit areas, and intimate nooks to study and feel inspired. The Edwards Art Gallery is the inspirational and visual centerpiece of this space.
9AM - 5PM: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday
