Eleanor Conover works with the material conditions of painting as both tangible and metaphorical spaces to investigate surface and environment. She joined the Dickinson College faculty as Assistant Professor of Art in the Fall of 2021.

Recent past exhibitions include Able Baker Contemporary (Portland, ME), Bad Water (Knoxville, TN), and Ortega y Gasset Projects (Brooklyn, NY). She was the 2020-21 recipient of the Wellesley College Alice C. Cole ’42 fellowship, awarded to an outstanding early career painter or sculptor. She completed her MFA at Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University (2018), and BA from Harvard College (2010); she received a post-MFA teaching fellowship at the School of Art, University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
