Hannibal, MO- The Hannibal-LaGrange University Art Department will be holding an art exhibit featuring Quincy Artist Joe Conover, February 8th through the 28th.

         An opening reception for Conover’s exhibit will be held on Friday, February 8 from 6:00-7:00 pm in the lobby of the Roland Fine Arts Center on the HLGU campus.
