1. Devon Week officially began on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 as guests gathered on the Devon grounds for First Night. The annual event not only opens the show, but also gives guests a sneak preview of the artwork on display and for sale in the Art Gallery at Devon. All proceeds from First Night at Devon are used to improve and preserve the horse show grounds. Sales from the Gallery throughout the show are used to support the important work of Bryn Mawr Hospital, which goes toward $2M pledge made by the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. Art Gallery chair Lorie Friel paused for a photo with artist Shawn Faust with his blue and red-ribboned entry (above center) and assistant chair Katherine Barthelmeh. Shawn Faust won the Devon Poster competition.
