Rick Devin, Mixed Media Artist, Sculptor

Rick Devin has been creating artwork and works of art for over thirty years. His work is constantly taking new directions as he believes that repetition is the root of stagnation. His paintings are executed in acrylic. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States. His other work is done in a variety of mixed media. His soft sculptures are done in very limited quantities. No two are exactly alike.
Many of the small sculptures are one of a kind as he uses pieces and parts of costume jewelry and other findings which are unique to each one. These sculptures range in height from four to eight inches. The photo to above is of the artist with his creation "No Time on My Hands" The clock is wood covered with canvas and stands about six feet high.
Rick found the Wickford Art Association when he first moved to Rhode Island and was looking for a community of artists to belong to in the beginning of the 80's. Rick ran the Wickford Art Festival for many years and later co-ran it with Francie Christopherson until as he said; he left it in her capable hands.
Rick maintains a small gallery in Hope Valley Rhode Island which is open by appointment. Please be patient when making an inquiry as he is only a one person operation. Should you wish to contact him he can be reached at: 401-539-8627
