Northern Moods: Paintings of Nova Scotia

Event Date/Time

Apr 4, 2013 to May 25, 2013
11:00 am

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

The Gallery at Firehouse Square is presenting a vibrant art exhibit exploring the lush and colorful landscapes and seascapes of Nova Scotia as seen through the eyes of Peter Devine, a New York artist with Connecticut roots.  Entitled “Northern Moods: Paintings of Nova Scotia,” the exhibit intends to draw the viewer into a place covered with pristine, unspoiled vistas barely affected by human contact.  The images are selected to function like icons of nature that provide a relief, a remembrance, and an aspiration for the viewer.  Devine, who paints in both oil and watercolor, has spent his life traveling the shoreline and countryside of Nova Scotia documenting his experiences along the way.  His exhibition at THE GALLERY marks his southeastern Connecticut debut showcasing his massive original artworks measuring from six-feet to two-feet in length.

 

“Northern Moods: Paintings of Nova Scotia” at THE GALLERY AT FIREHOUSE SQUARE opens Thursday, April 4th and runs through Saturday, May 25th. Guests will have an opportunity to meet and greet Peter Devine during an opening reception on Thursday, April 4th from 5:30-8:00 p.m.  All of Peter Devine’s original artwork will be available for purchase along with a series of select prints. 

 

Peter Devine divides his time between his studio in Nova Scotia and home in New York City. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Connecticut, concentrating his study with Anthony Terenzio. From Terenzio he was introduced to the intoxicating color of Bonnard and the limitless possibilities offered by the abstract expressionists.

 

After graduating, he taught studio art and art history at Mitchell College in New London, Connecticut. He then decided to return to his studies, and was awarded a graduate fellowship at Arizona State University where he received a Master of Fine Arts in painting.  He went back to teaching, and was appointed head of the art department at The Woodstock Country School in Vermont, before moving on to teach design and figure drawing at the University of Connecticut.

 

Devine now dedicates himself entirely to painting. In addition to winning a number of artist grants, he has exhibited from New York to California, most recently at Noel Fine Art in Bronxville, New York. His work is in private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Though his style has grown from pure abstraction to representational landscapes, it is the underlying power of abstraction and the expressive power of content that guide his work.

 

“Northern Moods: Paintings of Nova Scotia” at THE GALLERY AT FIREHOUSE SQUARE opens Thursday, April 4th and runs through Saturday, May 25th. Guests will have an opportunity to meet and greet Peter Devine during an opening reception on Thursday, April 4th from 5:30-8:00 p.m. For more information, please visit www.firehousesquare.com or www.pdevinestudio.com
