AC Gallery presents The Tab Hunter Paintings, a solo exhibition by artist Vance Lorenzini. A red carpet life celebration and tribute of fine art paintings honoring movie star Tab Hunter, the works in the exhibition offer a glimpse into the ground-breaking career and extraordinary life of a Hollywood idol turned American icon.
The famed video director and artist Vance Lorenzini has focused on nearly 20 images of Hunter to create a series of life-size paintings to be unveiled for the first time. Tab Hunter’s memorial service was held in July 2018 during a private ceremony near his home in Montecito and the exhibition, to be hosted by Hunter’s life partner of three decades Allan Glaser, will mark the first public event to memorialize him.
