Beginning on September 12, 2014, the Holderness School Edwards Art Gallery autumn show will feature selections from Robert Shetterly’s award-winning portrait series, "Americans Who Tell The Truth."

Twenty-six teams participated (a 93% participation rate for the school). The $30,000 that was raised exceeded our goal of $25,000.
