Eleanor Conover: Glass Half Moon

The 2020-21 Alice C. Cole ’42 Exhibition
Sep 8, 2021–Nov 5, 2021
Jewett Art Gallery
Open to the Wellesley College campus community only

Glass Half Moon brings a suite of 13 new paintings by Eleanor Conover to the Jewett Art Gallery at Wellesley College.

Conover is the recipient of the 2020-21 Alice C. Cole ’42 Fellowship, which provides funds to support one year of unimpeded time and space to experiment, develop a body of work, and focus on future artistic goals. Glass Half Moon features artwork created during Conover’s fellowship year.

The Alice C. Cole ’42 Fellowship is awarded to an outstanding early-career artist, 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, class of 1942. Aware of the burdens that recent graduates of art school face, Ms. Cole makes it possible for an artist to have “a limited time free of economic necessity”—an immensely valuable gift.

This exhibition is open to the Wellesley College campus community only.
