Quad City Arts “Art at the Airport”

Bimonthly Exhibit

The following artists incorporate their views of the world into their own art forms.

In addition to the airport gallery, the artist’s works can be seen and purchased online.

Paintings by Kristin Quinn and Ceramics by Megan Quinn

Megan Quinn is a professor at Augustana College in Rock Island, while Kristin Quinn is a professor at St. Ambrose University in Davenport. Megan is a ceramic artist, and Kristin is a painter. The two sisters grew up in a family of five children with parents who were educators. Their dad was a physicist who specialized in optics and provided access to visually stimulating apparatuses: prisms, lenses, holograms, etc. Along with lessons on the natural world, they were encouraged to ask questions. Growing up learning to really look at things and question how things work or what causes things to be the way they are, informs the way they look at art and how they approach their work. Although very different artistically, both enjoy experimentation and are inspired by nature and science. These sister artists approach their different art forms with a similar sensibility.

The exhibit will be available April 30-June 30, 2021.
