This exclusive afternoon event welcomes the community’s art collectors, gallerists, and art enthusiasts to gain insight on the concept, creation, and selection of works for the “Speak Now” Exhibition. This walk and talk tour is led by Special Projects Curator, Ralph Provisero and Deering Estate Exhibit Specialist, Kim Yantis who will share curatorial process as well as the artists reactions and interactions with our Historic site and structures.

Curatorial Statement:
Speak Now, is an exhibition of artistic interjections placed throughout the historic grounds of the Deering Estate. The open land, storied structures and intimate niches of the estate present infinite possibilities for both spatial and literary exploration. Artists will use written word, visual art and the inherent poetics of the estate’s natural and architectural treasures to create these interjections in space.

The title alludes to the urgent need to communicate with and be understood by one another. This aspect of society has never been more evident. Speak Now is a referent to the relationship between literature and the visual and performing arts as support structures for a more replete expression of thoughts.

Special Projects Curator Ralph Provisero and Artists

The highlight of this year’s Deering Estate Festival of the Arts is a curated invitational show that features Artists from the Deering Estate at Cuter Artist in Residence Program, Fountainhead Residency and Studios, and Invited Exhibitors. CuratorRalph Provisero invites the viewer to discover artistic interjections placed throughout the historic grounds of the Deering Estate. This year we welcomed the prominent The Fountainhead Residency and Studio program and selected artists to join forces with featured Artists in Residence from the Deering Estate at Cutler. Unique elements of this exhibition include spontaneous poetry creation and readings by the fire circle, an Artist Bookstore in the Historic Library, and traveling performance piece that “tours” the site. Dialogues develop between the space and artists with some works confronting the viewer, some on the outskirts of a view, on the outskirts, and some hidden in plain sight.Guests are welcome to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnic baskets. Parking is free.
