Notes from the Quarantimes Exhibition
Name: Notes from the Quarantimes Exhibition
Date: October 16, 2021 - January 15, 2022
“Notes from the Quarantimes” is an exhibition of works by six Detroit-based artists Clinton Snider, Graem Whyte, Michael McGillis, Mitch Cope and Scott Hocking who left behind, if only temporarily, the tragedy of Covid in May 2020 to bail out, quite literally, their friend and fellow exhibiting artist Andrew Krieger in the midst of another tragedy. When twenty-two billion gallons of water breached the Edenville Dam, a home and piece of Krieger family heritage was badly damaged. This 100-year pandemic, and this 500-year flood, while different in scope and scale, cast a heavy weight into each artist’s creative reservoir. While rebuilding Krieger’s historic family home, the friends found creative inspiration in the changed landscape from the flood, and the changed world from the pandemic. Their inspiration, that work, is exhibited here. Oil paintings, mixed media and photographs, among others, tell the story of isolation and devastation, of loneliness and community. Notes from the Quarantimes: Six Artists. One Pandemic. And, a Dam Flood.
