Laura Rathe Fine Art

(Houston, TX, November 6, 2020) – Laura Rathe Fine Art presents new works by world-renowned artist, Hunt Slonem. The opening reception will be held Saturday, December 12 from 11-8pm at their River Oaks District gallery (4444 Westheimer). Widely recognized as one of the biggest contemporary neo-expressionist artists, Slonem has catapulted into the collections of the world’s top museums, including the Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney, among others. Hunt’s colorful canvases, filled with bunnies, birds and butterflies celebrate the vibrancy and beauty of nature, largely inspired by his childhood upbringing and subsequent studies in Nicaragua. His trademark style has been described as whimsical and extravagant, evident in his playful figures, bold color and rich texture. This exhibition presents a glimpse into our world through the cheerful eyes of Hunt Slonem, bringing much needed lightness and joy to close out the year. All That is Bright & Beautiful will be on display through January 11, 2021.
