Hunt Slonem’s Angels and Saints

Sept. 8-Oct. 7 | Ursuline College
www.ursuline.edu

With his eccentric home décor, brightly colored blazers and collection of pet birds, Hunt Slonem is a fixture on the New York art scene.
This month, the contemporary painter brings his 40-piece Angels and Saints to Ursuline College’s Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery. The monthlong exhibition will be kicked off by the IN THE PINK gala benefit.

Known for a technique that uses repetition as a way to make an object seem almost ghostlike, Slonem paints everything from birds to blossoms to Buddhas.

“Hunt does his oil paintings with a real sense of playfulness,” says Mary Wasmer, former board member of the Florence O’Donnell Wasmer Gallery.

Slonem, who lives in New York City with his 70 pet birds, has shown his works at more than 250 solo exhibitions since 1977. His paintings hang at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
