Local artists on display at RiverWinds Gallery

K.P. Devlin, acrylic, “Robin’s Big Fig”

BEACON — RiverWinds Gallery, located at 172 Main St. in Beacon, is presenting “New Year/New Artists: Devlin and Dooley.”

The gallery is starting out the new year with the works of two new artists on display.

K.P. Devlin’s paintings are inspired by artist Hieronymus Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights” – specifically the Hell portion!

Jennifer Dooley skillfully uses wide-angle lenses to magnify the tattered grandeur of public spaces that had been built to impress.

The Artist Opening will be held Jan. 11, from 6-9 p.m. The show runs through Feb. 2.

From the early 1990s through roughly 2010, Devlin was very active as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist. He produced albums for other people. He gigged in New York City, toured nationally and around the globe, including shows in Australia. He received extensive radio play on college and indie radio, both in the U.S. and around the world, licensed his songs to films, television shows, commercials, promos and even a video game.

Devlin currently lives and works in New York City

Dooley’s view of the world is tied to analysis, spacial consideration and creativity; it is usually realistic, but she escapes into the surreal by distorting and using creative techniques.

“It’s fun to exaggerate and draw the viewer’s attention to a piece of something, she said. “My eye always gravitates towards graphic shapes, patterns, perspective and leading lines.”

Dooley is a quality assurance analyst and lives in Port Chester.
