Senior Art History Major Co-curatorial Exhibition
co-curated by the senior Art History majors
Exhibition Dates: Friday, February 11 - Friday, March 11
Reception and Gallery talks: Friday, March 11th, 5-7pm

This current exhibition in the Greiner Art Gallery features selections from the Hanover College private art collection and has been co-curated by the senior Art History majors: Elizabeth Kershaw and Jessica Whitehead. Artworks on exhibit include eleven paintings by Harlan Hubbard and eight sculptures from five different cultures including a wood sculpture by Barbara Hepworth. This exhibition represents months of research and planning by the senior Art History majors and is both a pre-professional experience and a part of their graduating comprehensive exam.

Titled The Spirit Within, Elizabeth Kershaw describes how, "these sculptures bring up questions about spirituality, beauty, and society that make the viewer reflect on their own interpretation of what the human figure means in art."

In The Kentuckiana Sublime, Jessica Whitehead connects Harlan Hubbard's painting to his writing and the region. "Hallmarked by respect, Harlan captured the American idea of the sublime and made it his own; his art communicates the spirit and majesty of Kentuckiana."
