Carrie Cook and Abi Semtner Doing It Like Dolly Does...How Does Dolly Do It

January 25, 2013 – March 2, 2013 Cecily E. Horton Gallery

Carrie Cook and Abi Semtner both find consolation in the country music they grew up with.  Doing It Like Dolly Does… How Does Dolly Do It meditates on the role that loss and memory play in this music and has played in their personal developments. With both humor and seriousness of heart, Cook and Semtner consider Dolly Parton to be a guide in this effort.  Working separately, they both use a soundtrack of Parton’s songs to investigate their own histories of loss.
