Max Knechtel | @billspotting

December 21, 2020 – February 152021

Receiver Coffee Co.
128 Richmond Street
Charlottetown, PE

this town is small and Receiver Coffee are pleased to present @billspotting, a retrospective of collected images of local public figure Bill McFadden throughout 2019 until his passing in 2020.

While it started with project creator and curator Max Knechtel’s daily encounters, Bill’s frequent escapades were inevitably captured by the wider community and a steady stream of paparazzi-style contributions were shared via Instagram.

The exhibition on view at Receiver exhibits various Billspotting images and other iconic Bill works, serving as a lighthearted glimpse of a brief period in the large life of one of Charlottetown’s most enigmatic and eclectic figures. The exhibition includes a series of photographs by Max Knechtel, a photograph by Bradly Joseph, and an acrylic painting by Kathryn Saunders.

The original project and additional credits can be viewed on Instagram: @billspotting
Thank you to all the contributors!

This project is made possible thanks to the generous support of PEI Arts Grants, Innovation PEI.
