Hunt Slonem was born in 1951 in Kittery, Maine, where his father, a submarine captain, was stationed. They moved often, and after high school, he attended Vanderbilt University. He spent six months of his sophomore year at the University of the Americas in San Andrés Cholula in Puebla, Mexico, before transferring to Tulane University in New Orleans, where he earned a degree in painting and art history. Afterward, he took courses at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine.
In 1976 a grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation enabled him to paint full-time, which led to his first solo exhibition at New York’s Harold Reed Gallery. It was followed by a major exhibition at the Fischbach Gallery, and his career was well launched. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at prestigious galleries and museums in the United States and abroad. In this country alone, more than thirty museums have hosted exhibitions of his work.
