Welcome to the Art & Art History Department and Greiner Art Gallery Website

The Department of Art and Art History at Hanover College offers a major and a minor in each area: Studio Art and Art History. The small student-to-faculty ratios ensure individual attention to discover their strength while the creative and nurturing environment encourages students can inspire one another.

The Greiner Art Gallery at Hanover College provides the community with visual art exhibtions in a professional setting. Each year, the exhibition season features a diverse line-up of artists and artistic styles. The gallery also offers opportunities to get to know the artists through a series of Special Events including demonstrations, lectures, and seminars.

The next exhibition in the Greiner Art Gallery is Land Report.

Land Report is a group exhibition featuring five artists who deal with landscape in fundamental ways and as a foundational reference point.
