Margot Gayle Fundraiser: Tour of Hunt Slonem’s Studio
May 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Us! Annual VSNY Margot Gayle Fundraiser
When: Wednesday, May 24th 2023 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Where: Hunt Slonem’s Manhattan Studio (location confirmed with ticket purchase)
Contemporary artist Hunt Slonem is one of the most collected painters working today. His neo-Expressionist depictions of nature – including his iconic bunnies and parrots — are eagerly acquired by adoring celebrity clients, museums, and galleries around the world. Beyond painting, Slonem’s passion in life is for historic mansions. He has restored eight National Landmark homes, curating a distinctive decor in which his own art sits alongside antiques and rare nineteenth-century furnishings. Join the Victorian Society of New York for a rare and exclusive tour of Hunt’s extraordinary Manhattan studio, where he works amongst a profusion of Victorian antiques, rare tropical birds and art. We will see a preview of Board member Brian Coleman’s upcoming book on Slonem’s homes and guests will receive a voucher for a signed copy when it is released this fall. A festive toast will follow the tour and book presentation.
