The Jackson Library Gallery at Berwick Academy is a large and open gallery that has a soaring skylight, track lighting, gallery benches, and shelving. Pedestals and glass cases are also available for display.

The Jackson Library is located in the center of our campus and is handicapped-accessible. The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day school is in session. The gallery is a space that attracts visitors and encourages engagement with art.

The Jackson Library Gallery Committee reviews exhibit proposals on an annual basis and selects shows based on a goal of attaining a mix of mediums and content for the gallery while supporting the school curriculum.
