Upcoming Events

  • Mariboe Gallery: Architect Bob Hillier

    J. Robert “Bob” Hillier, FAIA, founded Hillier Architecture in 1966. In 2007, Hillier merged with RMJM of Scotland, creating the third largest strictly-architectural firm in the world. The Hillier firm has received over 300 state, national and international design awards, many of them projects on which Hillier himself was the lead designer. In 2009, Mr. Hillier established Studio Hillier, a new type of architectural firm based on land use strategy and execution. This new firm focuses on community need, neighborhood enhancement, and opportunities for architectural excellence while providing reasonable returns to investors. Hillier has served on Peddie School’s Board of Trustees since 1981. Opening reception TBA.
  • Mariboe Gallery: Sculptor Patrick Strzelec

    Patrick Strzelec makes abstract sculpture with an incredibly diverse range of materials — aluminum, ceramic, epoxy, plaster, steel, and wood, to name a few. His mastery of these materials, as well as his unique ability to transform them into highly charismatic — albeit somewhat inscrutable — objects and forms has earned him numerous awards in sculpture, including the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship; the Ballingkillings Project in Ireland; the Rome Prize, Rome, Italy; a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts; and numerous New Jersey State Council for the Arts grants. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Mr. Strzelec is the former Rudolph Arnheim Lecturer in Sculpture at Harvard University. Opening reception October 8 at 6:30 p.m.

  • Mariboe Gallery: Scott Baxter '75

    Scott Baxter has been a professional photographer for over twenty-five years. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Mexico, and Japan. He has earned numerous awards for his commercial and editorial work. Philanthropy has been an integral part of Mr. Baxter’s photographic career; he has worked with many non-profit organizations, including the United Way, the Arizona Foundation for Blind Children, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and the Salvation Army. Mr. Baxter is currently working on two long-term documentary photographic projects: the “100 Years 100 Ranchers Project,” in partnership with Through Each Others’ Eyes; and photographing the indigenous peoples of Chiapas, Mexico, for The Peace and Justice Center. Opening reception January 21 at 6:30 pm.
  • Winter Student Art Exhibit

  • Mariboe Gallery: Gina Siepel

    Gina Siepel’s diverse works explore the relationship between process, performance, and the construction of identity, connecting disparate American ideologies, from Thoreauvian ethics to Queer theory to the “self-reliance” championed by the political Right. These investigations draw on the work of such iconic 19th- and early 20th-century American thinkers as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John James Audubon, Winslow Homer, and Emma Goldman. Siepel integrates her conceptual inquiry with a deep engagement in craftsmanship and a love of materials. Opening reception at 6:30 pm on March 25
