The number of bunny sightings on Newbury Street is multiplying over the course of the next few weeks with the arrival of the “Hunt Slonem Solo Exhibition” at DTR Modern Gallery. This show, which begins today, features “a wide array of Hunt Slonem’s globally recognized butterflies, bunnies and birds,” says gallery director Suzanne King, and is sure to delight art connoisseurs and budding collectors alike.

DTR Modern Gallery, which also has locations in New York, Palm Beach and Washington D.C., and is known for its privately-held collection of works by modern and contemporary masters like Basquiat, Haring, Miró, Picasso and Warhol, is thrilled to show many of Slonem’s neo-expressionist works in their totality, many of which are inspired by nature and the artist’s 60 pet birds. While Slonem’s work can be found in the permanent collections of 250 museums around the world, DTR Modern Gallery Boston presents the heady, lavishly colored oil paintings, bold patterns and gestured brushwork that are the artist’s signature in a more intimate forum.
Slonem himself is appearing at an invite-only reception tonight, and the exhibition will be on view through May 5.
