Current Exhibit

Holbrook Made is Millbrook's annual student exhibition that honors work by our advanced visual artists. The work in this exhibition shows the breadth of our visual arts program and includes drawing, painting, collage, photography, ceramics, and sculpture. Millbrook’s curricula in the visual arts emphasize technique in teacher-assigned projects for much of the year. Students culminate the year’s work with a Holbrook Made project, which is an opportunity for the student to express and dig into unique curiosities from the year. Each piece is different from the next. In addition to creating artwork for the show, students write artist statements to share their intentions and processes. This year’s projects include ceramics pieces from our wood kiln firing, experimentation with photographic palladium printing and a larger-than-life drawing of a horse that will be installed along with a projection of Eadweard Muybridge’s early photographs of horses’ gaits.
Millbrook School’s Warner Gallery is a professional gallery space located within the Holbrook Arts Center.

Each year the Warner Gallery hosts four major exhibitions. The academic year begins with Confluence, an annual faculty show, and closes with Holbrook Made, an exhibit of work by advanced students in the visual arts. Two additional exhibits during the school year feature art by established and emerging artists from across the country. These exhibitions have spanned traditional and new art forms, including drawing and painting, sculpture, photography, video art and animation, performance documentation, and interactive pieces. Millbrook’s students are the first and most important audience for the Warner Gallery programming. Exhibitions enrich and inspire curriculum in the arts department and beyond. Outside visitors are welcome to attend gallery receptions and to visit during normal business hours.

Collaboration and the Warner Gallery
Warner Gallery exhibitions often explore connections between the arts and other academic departments. Over the years members of Millbrook’s faculty in the history, English, science, math, and world language departments have created projects and opportunities for investigation that make the art in the gallery come alive. Students in art history classes have also served as guest curators.
