Join the Wellesley College Studio Art Program for a talk by the 2020-21 Alice C. Cole '42 Fellow, Eleanor Conover.
Tuesday, March 16
5:30 pm EDT
Currently based in Tennessee, where she teaches painting and drawing at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Eleanor Conover has a BA from Harvard College and an MFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Her work engages with the physical and material conditions of painting and drawing as metaphors for environmental time and space, implying locations and states of excavation and accumulation.
The Alice C. Cole '42 Fellowship is awarded to an outstanding early-career painter or sculptor, providing funds to support one year of unimpeded time and space to experiment, develop a body of work, and focus on future artistic goals. Administered by the Wellesley College Studio Art Program, Cole Fellowships are based on nominations from prominent members of the national arts community. The fellowship is made possible by the generous bequest of Wellesley Alumna Alice C. Cole '42. Aware of the burdens that face recent graduates of art school, Ms. Cole makes it possible for an artist to have 'a limited time free of economic necessity'-- an immensely valuable gift.
This event is free and open to the public, but advance registration using the listed link is required.
