Edwards Art Gallery

"The arts are the foremost expression of our civilization. They comprise a complex language, one not just non-linear, but intuitive, and through which one learns to code and decode a vast amount of visual information, as well as to think in new and different ways." 

— Glenn Lowry, Director, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and Holderness School Class of '72
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 1990s 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.”

Recent exhibitions and exhibitors include Robert Shetterly’s “Americans Who Tell the Truth,” painter Emilie Lee ‘99, and painter Jonathan Sherman ‘95. Each year, the Edwards Art Gallery also collaborates with Boston’s Pucker Gallery on its autumn exhibit, displaying the works of internationally recognized ceramicists including Ken Matsuzaki and Yoshinori Hagiwara.
