This exhibition highlights new work recently curated from Hunt Slonem’s studio in New York City by Jori Cheville (gallery director) and Kim Weinberger (WFA owner and chief curator). The gallery walls will be painted vivid colors to mirror the design and high-energy found in many of Hunt Slonem's paintings, books, and interior design. The exhibition will feature a series of his iconic bunny paintings, in addition to a series of vivid florals and abstracted bayou landscapes.
HUNTSLONEM | Master Painter
Masterful painterly abandon and a passionate intent to reveal his truth characterizes the work of Hunt Slonem. His subjects are the vehicle for his dialogue with the viewer. Expressionism, Abstraction, Modernism, Impressionism, are just a few of the derivative elements that assist the artist in his exciting visual language.“This painter has guts…he’s fearless” was an accolade heard at a recent viewing of Hunt Slonem’s work in New York. His work is in every major collection across the United States, Europe and South America.
BLUESTEM | Delicious Food
Hors D’ouerves will be provided by Bluestem. Bluestem has received local and national accolades including being named as a 2015 James Beard Foundation semi-finalist for “Outstanding Restaurant” for an invigorating marriage of cuisine and hospitality.
