Join us in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall at BRIT as we take a deeper dive into the work of six present day botanical artists. From the classical botanical art of Melanie Campbell-Carter and Samantha Peters; to the contemporary style of Jennifer Gillen and Denis Benjamin; and from the vibrant, dramatic floral paintings of the nationally celebrated and award winning Soon Warren, to the unique art of Roberta Smith using pressed and dried flowers, each artist explores the beauty of the plant kingdom in their unique style, creating an awareness of the importance that plants plays in our lives

Meet the artists at the opening reception on Friday, July 12th, 5.30 pm - 7.30 pm. This event is free and open to the public. Can't make it on the 12th? Then join us for Fall Gallery Night on September 7th.

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.
