Laura Rathe Fine Art presents Hunt Slonem: Fauna Opening Reception
For its fall season premiere, Laura Rathe Fine Art presents an introductory solo exhibition featuring works by world-renowned artist Hunt Slonem. Fauna will feature works from Slonem’s popular series of rabbits, butterflies, and birds.
Born in Kittery, Maine, in 1951, New York-based artist Slonem is an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker, well-known for his Neo-Expressionist works featuring butterflies, rabbits, and tropical birds. Considered one of the great colorists of his time, Slonem’s gestural and extraordinarily vibrant portraits of wildlife immortalize and celebrate each species while honoring the exuberance and diversity of life itself.
Slonem studied painting at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, Vanderbilt University, and Tulane University. His work has been the focus of over 300 solo exhibitions worldwide and is held in the collections of more than 100 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 8.
