BRIT is pleased to present Tree of Life: Valuing our culture by deepening the understanding of our roots., the spring exhibit by the well respected Texas Jewish Arts Association (TJAA). This wide-ranging exhibit features artworks in a variety of media. The goals of TJAA and BRIT are similar: BRIT's deep commitment to preserving the region's natural heritage and expanding its appreciation through conservation and education mirrors the passion that the TJAA embraces for remembering and deepening its connection to its source and its soul.

Join us in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall on Saturday, March 24 from 4pm - 9pm for Spring Gallery Night and the opening of this unique exhibit. Artists from the TJAA will be on hand to discuss their art with the public from 6pm - 8pm.

About Art at BRIT

Art at BRIT offers two distinctive art viewing spaces: the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the smaller, more intimate Upper Atrium Collections Gallery. The Samples Exhibit Hall showcases botanical art and artwork dealing with topics such as ecology, plants, sustainability, conservation, and the natural world – we highlight work by local and national artists, both well-known and emerging. The Upper Atrium Collections Gallery features a rotation of botanical and nature-based prints from our Library collection, including The Arader Natural History Collection of Art. We honor and celebrate the traditional roots of botanical art, while also expanding and redefining the field for the 21st century.
