Closing reception for summer exhibition: Swamp Reclaims the Pool Presented Deering Estate

The closing reception for the summer Exhibition "Swamp Reclaims the Pool" by Alumni Artists-in-Residence Annie Blazejack and Geddes Levenson will be held on Wednesday, September 12 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Deering Estate.

An artist-led tour with Blazejack and Levenson will be offered at at 7:30 p.m. Reservations required on Eventbrite or RSVP by email to DeeringArts@gmail.com.

The closing reception is free and open to the public. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available. Through their collaboratively created paintings, the artists reveal their fascination with sci-fi narratives and invite the viewer to encounter unfamiliar back-yard landscapes. In the exhibit, works like "Naming the Mouth" and "New Way of the Wilderness" build a new mythology of South Florida waters as swimmers bodies merge with alligator heads on the water's surface. Other works like "Midnight Poolside" and "UFO POV" (Unidentified Flying Object, Point of View) share odd scenarios of nighttime swims and secret gatherings.
