From 2013-17, the New Gallery for Contemporary Art at NOVA featured national and international artists, as well as student and faculty work. Twelve shows were curated exhibitions that promoted both new practices/concepts in contemporary art and the studio areas taught on campus.

Recently curated shows in the greater DC area include Reference at the Workhouse Arts Center, which investigated the ways in which artist-educators are influenced by Art History.
Boundaries, an exhibition of video work, investigated the real and constructed nature of space through geographic, political, and even metaphysical "boundaries." The location of the exhibition site, The Brentwood Arts Exchange, falls along the border of DC and Maryland.
On the one-year anniversary of the Women's March, Devine co-curated What Feminism Looks Like, a Nasty Women exhibition and auction for Planned Parenthood with DC artist Shante Bullock. With support from Art Watch, Devine and Bullock juried submissions from local and national women artists. The exhibition was hosted at the District of Columbia Arts Center.

Erin Devine Gallery
In the early 2000s, the Erin Devine Gallery was located in a former firehouse in the NuLu district along Market Street in Louisville. The commercial gallery operated for five years before Devine left to pursue a doctorate. Exhibiting works by established and emerging, local and national artists in photography, installation, sculpture, and painting, the gallery was instrumental in founding both the First Friday Gallery Hop and the Louisville Photo Biennial, as well as establishing an international exchange between Louisville and Dublin, Ireland.
