If there was an artist with a secret knack for interior design populating the sets on Alice In Wonderland, it would be Hunt Slonem. He is an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker who is known for his Neo-Expressionist paintings of rabbits, tropical birds, and butterflies. In fact, he has kept a personal aviary where about one hundred birds of various species live.

From June through August, the Barn space at East Hamptons Gardens will be transformed into a gilded-age wonderland showcasing the fantastical exotica world of world-renowned artist Hunt Slonem.

The Barn will showcase his style of “collectorating,” filling entire spaces with bright colors and unusual wall treatments, with countless numbers of 19th century paintings hanging salon-style, and his collections arranged with antique furniture and other goods throughout.
