About the artist

Devan CarpenterDevan Ryan Carpenter is an emerging artist who resides in Frankfort, Ky. Her brightly colored work largely features landscapes and portraiture done in a modern romanticism.

Her work is influenced by the French Impressionists, the Austrian expressionist, Gustav Klimt and the contemporary master, Ed Sandoval.

This celebration of storytelling will include a visual exploration of why we choose to tell stories as well as why we choose the subject matter we do. Live music & light refreshment will be provided. Come join the fun!

The Art Gallery located inside the Scott County Public Library is a unique space that provides opportunities to enhance the community’s appreciation of the arts. Curated exhibits featured in the Gallery are family-friendly, easily accessible, open to the public during regular library hours and are free of charge.
