Glitch is beyond excited to have Hamlett Dobbins: Untitled (For A.J.F./G.) at the gallery this month! It's going to be great!
The exhibition will open with a reception on Friday, March 20 from 6-11 pm.
The show will run through Friday, March 27th. The gallery will be open by appointment only. Appointments can be made by contacting Adam Farmer.
Glitch is located at 2180 Cowden in Midtown Memphis.
For years Dobbins has titled his abstract paintings “Untitled” followed by a series of initials that reference the person about whom the paintings are based. (So, for example, if a painting is based on the experience of having a tea party with his daughter, Milla Rosemary Meiman, then a painting might be named “Untitled (for M.R.M.)”) Since paintings included in the exhibition were made with Glitch’s pattern-filled-space in mind, the show is named for Adam Joe Farmer and Glitch. The suite of roughly a dozen paintings included in the show were made in the time since Dobbins returned to Memphis from his residency at the American Academy in Rome.
A native of Tennessee, Hamlett Dobbins spent most of his life in Memphis. He has received grants from the Pollock Krasner Foundation, the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Individual Artists Grant, and an ArtsMemphis Accelerator Grant. He has shown his work throughout the region as well as abroad. For the last fifteen years Dobbins has been active in the art community in Memphis working as a curator, a writer, and a teacher. From 2001 to 2013 he was the director of the Clough-Hanson Gallery at Rhodes College where he also taught. From 2004 to 2013 he ran a non-commercial alternative space called Material where he provided exhibition opportunities for nearly a hundred artists. In 2013 he was awarded the Rome Prize and spent eleven months as a fellow at the American Academy in Rome.
