Douglas Shaw Elder and Skip Hill

“Melrose Sessions” is the culmination of a collaboration between Elder and Hill, conceived in 2018, when the two artists were convening regularly in Elder’s studio on Melrose Street in dedicated sessions to discuss art, life, and the world we live in. The driving force behind the meet-ups was to create art, to listen to music, and to support each other as artists. Both artists work with elements of nature, including birds and landscapes, independently. The two began to merge Elder’s sculptural woodcarvings and Hill’s colorful drawings, fusing their individual styles to create complementary pieces, resulting in the works in this exhibit.

Abbie Gardner is a fiery dobro player with an infectious smile. Whether performing solo or with Americana darlings Red Molly, her acclaimed tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, are propelled by her impeccable slide guitar chops. Her live show is truly unique - as both an award winning songwriter and interpreter of folk styles, a captivating vocalist, and a world class lap style dobro player, she has an unmistakable sound all her own. Her latest CD, Wishes on a Neon Sign, was released in January 2018, and features twelve original songs, including a co-write with Chris Stapleton. She has opened for Lori McKenna, Hot Rize and Martina McBride.
