Devan Horton is a Northern Kentucky artist who creates paintings that call attention to the ways in which humans have corrupted nature. Since receiving her BFA in Painting from Northern Kentucky University, Devan has crafted and promoted her artistic career by exhibiting in local and national galleries, including Manifest Gallery, Buckham Gallery, and Caza Sykes Gallery. Most recently, she held a solo exhibition of her series, "Penchant," at Studio Kroner in Cincinnati, an exhibition and fundraising event called “Trash Talk,” which benefited three local sustainability organizations: Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, Green Umbrella, and the Cincinnati Recycle and Reuse Hub. In 2021, she completed a residency program through Friends of Black Rock, a conservation organization in the Black Rock Desert. In March of 2022, Devan was a featured panelist in The Clifton Cultural Arts Center's Sunset Salon: Art as Activism. Activism, collectiveness, and a love of the natural world have remained themes in Devan's work since college. Recently, she has launched a series of experiments with sustainable, non-toxic paints, pigments, and regenerative canvas materials.
