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. The portraits, chosen by members of the Holderness community, showcase citizens who courageously address issues of social, economic and environmental fairness. Among the portraits featured will be Bill McKibben, Woody Guthrie, Rachel Carson, and Malcolm X.
In hosting the show Holderness School hopes to foster civil, informative, and spirited discussion about the important issues of our time. The show opens on September 12, and there will be an opening reception with the artist present on Thursday, September 25, at 6:30 pm. There will be artist talks on campus on September 25th and 26th.
