MELLOW MOUNTAIN COALITION AT MEDICINE FACTORY OPEN HOUSE
Medicine Factory / 85 Virginia Avenue W May 18th
Hamlett Dobbins, Tad Lauritzen Wright
In the spring of 2008 Hamlett Dobbins and Tad Lauritzen Wright bought two nice, big Holbein sketchbooks to share. In the spirit of friendship they traded these books back and forth for many years. One of them would start a drawing, laying down a riff, and the other would respond following the other’s lead. From time to time they would meet in Hamlett’s studio to paint and visit. In 2010 Mellow Mountain Coalition was included in a group show of collaborative work, We Like Each Other, at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska and in 2013 they were in Co-lab at Kevin Mitchell’s Nu Gallery on Broad and in All My Rowdy Friends at Mark Nowell’s Rozelle Warehouse. That same year Mellow Mountain Coalition were shown at the Leu Art Gallery at Belmont University in Nashville. Recently they have shown in the Caboose at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo, at Piedmont College in Georgia, and at Whitspec at Whitespace Gallery in Atlanta. This exhibition at Medicine Factory will feature their newest work.
