January Exhibition

This January, the Hanover College Greiner Art Gallery will feature a unique collaboration between Shawn Skabelund from Northern Arizona and Tiffany Carbonneau from Bellarmine University, Louisville, Kentucky. Both artists specialize in creating site-sensitive art about complex and significant topics.

The installation that they have designed for the Greiner Art Gallery, titled The River Floweth On, compares historic and contemporary migrations on the Ohio River. Through an installation of video, tons of corn, and wood, Skabelund and Carbonneau will turn the gallery into a barge on the Ohio River to initiate dialogues about the Underground railroad and the effects of NAFTA on farmers in Mexico.

This exhibition has been made possible by the financial support of The Rivers Institute at Hanover College.

Infestation, Bunnell Street Gallery, Homer, Alaska, 2001

This installation focused on dendoctronus rufipennis, a spruce bark beetle, which has decimated millions of acres of Alaska's Sitka Spruce forest. Like fire, spruce bark beetles are part of the natural selection process, a process that allows for rebirth and renewal by opening up the forest canopy so that a new generation can thrive. In Infestation, I recreated the dark, moist, aromatic home of this quarter inch insect, with a main chamber and nine perpendicular galleries. At the end of each gallery was a circular light table containing a magnified image of a spruce bark beetle; above each table nine freshly cut and peeled spruce logs hung. Surrounding the light tables were four tons of freshly cut spruce wood chips. In the center of the chamber, stood a steel/glass, display case containing 2000 insects; the continuous eating sounds of these insects drifted through the gallery.

February Exhibition

The Hanover College Art print collection is rarely available to the public, so when selections of the collection are on exhibit each February, it is a special treat. This exhibition selections from the Hanover College private art collection and has been co-curated by Visiting Professor Flint Collins and the students in his Museum Studies course. Artworks include prints by Picasso, Miro, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Chagall. Furthermore, this exhibition represents research and planning by the students and is a pre-professional experience for these students who are considering careers in museums.

Exhibition Dates: February 13 - March 9
There will be a reception and gallery talks by Visiting Professor Flint Collins and the students in his Museum Studies course on Friday, February 17th at 5pm.
