Art attack. Hunt Slonem is the artist. He shared his space so you can have an insider’s view at the creative juxtaposition of the fine artist and fashion designer and how well they highlight each other.
Today I visited Hunt Slonem’s studio. He is one of my favorite artists, so it was amazing to meet him. He has about 50 parrots, many beautifully upholstered settees, and an entire room full of plants. He showed me every room, and gave me a book about his paintings and his homes in Louisiana. It was a delight.
Today I had the pleasure of visiting Mana Contemporary in Jersey City for the opening of Conference of the Birds exhibit, curated by Cythia-Reeves Projects, and on view May 6-July 31. The massive space is full of treasures including open artists studios and a wonderful new acquisitions gallery. It was definitely worth the trip under the tunnel and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
