Mark Devlin’s “Studies” Opens February 25 in Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery

CONTACT:  Sharon Morrissey/Gunn Memorial Library gunnstaff@biblio.org

Born in Salem, Ma. in 1961, Mark first started painting seriously at the age of 10 with lessons given by watercolorist Helene (E.H.) Pierce in Amherst N.H. where he grew up. His mother was an oil painter and a continual artistic influence to this day. Mark won first prize in the Amherst Art Show in 1972 cementing a passion for painting.

In college at Columbia University in New York and Paris, his passion for art turned into architecture where he studied under and worked for, Robert A. M. Stern, Rafael Viñoly and James Stewart Polshek. Mark has worked in NYC, San Francisco, Paris and Bangkok, coming back to NYC to open his own residential architecture/interiors practice in 1995.

“As a child playing in the woods, I noticed that the light filtering through the tree canopy transformed the forest floor into its own miniaturized landscapes.  Playing with light on form and changing scale to create unique environments stimulates my thinking. The painting process further transforms the thoughts,” Mark tells us.

After moving to Washington Ct. in 2002, Mark began taking classes at the Washington Art Association, studying principally with Patty Keville Fogle the past 5 years.

Mark currently lives, practices and paints in Bethlehem CT where he finds extensive views and sharp, clear light his inspiration.

10th Annual Washington Green Cemetery Tour                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Friday, October 27, 2017, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Groups of visitors will meet at the Museum and be led by Tour Guides dressed in vintage attire along a path of 1,000 luminaries through the Cemetery to meet some of Washington's unforgettable residents from the past. Unique, memorable and familiar citizens from the last century will be brought to life by costumed actors who will tell stories of their life; some amusing, some sad, some tragic — even horrific!

Cemetery Tour attendees should come to the Gunn Historical Museum and form a line to get numbered tickets for the tours, handed out on a first-come first-serve basis, starting at 6:15 p.m. on Oct. 27, and continuing through the evening until the tickets run out. Tours of the Cemetery depart from the Gunn Museum in groups of eighteen people every eight minutes between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. and last approximately one hour. Unfortunately tickets can not be reserved and specific times can't be requested. While there is no fee to attend the Cemetery Tour, donations are greatly appreciated.

A Halloween themed movie will be shown in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Library where attendees can wait inside for their tour group to depart. Visitors are encouraged to bring a flashlight, dress warmly, and wear comfortable walking shoes. The Gunn Museum is located at 5 Wykeham Road, at the intersection of Wykeham Road and Route 47, in Washington, Connecticut. Parking at the Gunn is limited, please carpool and use nearby lots and side streets.

The rain date for the Cemetery Tour is Sunday, October 29, 2017 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
