Finding Creative Ways to Support the Arts: Artist Devin Howell Curry

Devin Howell Curry earned a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology from Florida Atlantic University (FAU). She received her MFA in Painting at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. She participated in the intensive program at Mount Gretna School of Art in 2016 and was also selected as a Four Pillars Artist in 2019. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including New York City, Richmond, VA, Lancaster, PA, Tulsa, OK, Cambridge, and Boston, MA. In 2019 Devin was featured in New American Paintings, #141 MFA Annual. She currently works as an associate faculty member at Post University in Waterbury, CT. She lives in Fredericksburg, Virginia, with her husband and son.

"My still life paintings incorporate both recorded observation and invention. The arrangements consist of objects that carry personal meaning: ceramic pieces made by my great grandmother, trinkets that belonged to my grandmother, and books of women artists I feel a connection with. I often add a self-portrait in the work, placing myself within the same space of the women I reference. I am interested in lineage (both biological and artistic), the connection between women, and the objects we keep to remember the women who came before us. While I do think of the work as possessing a narrative, I also see it as an attempt to chronicle what is lost, a mapping process, a charting of both spatial proximity and what can never truly be known."
