Next up in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall at BRIT is Botanical Art: Flowers, fruit and fungi, the first exhibition of the newly formed Botanical Art Collective of North Central Texas. This exhibit, which will hang from June 14 – August 9, is a celebration of the world of botany and will feature depictions of flowers, fruits, seeds, vegetables, fungi, and grasses executed in a variety of mediums by a variety of talented, local artists. Join us and explore the joyful intersection of two distinct yet closely related disciplines - botanical art and science.

The opening reception for Botanical Art: Flowers, fruit, and fungi will be on Thursday June 14 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Meet the artists and enjoy informal gallery talks.

 

About Exhibits

Botanical art plays an important role at BRIT and we are fortunate to have two exhibit spaces, the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the intimate Welcome Center Gallery, in which to display a variety of art from both well-known and emerging local artists. BRIT joins with the rest of the Fort Worth visual arts community twice a year and participates in spring and fall Gallery Nights.
