Local artist Delia deVer joins BRIT for the final show of the 2015 season.  Originally from Northern California, deVer moved to Texas after studying visual art at the San Francisco Bay Area’s California College of the Arts. Her unique use of color and modern approach to painting and drawing blossomed and matured in Texas where her abstract studio work and expressive plein-air paintings reflect her present and lively experiences. In this exhibit, Communicating with Plants, deVer’s progressive art school training merges beautifully with the dharma art practices that equally inform her art and life.

Of this collection, deVer says, "Above all else, this collection of art is my way of speaking on behalf of wilderness plant life and all the life they support to people that see the beauty and understand how interconnected we all are, as well as to those that can be reached by the power of their silent song for the first time at any moment."

About Art at BRIT

BRIT has two distinctive art viewing spaces: the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the smaller, more intimate Welcome Center Gallery. The Samples Exhibit Hall showcases botanical art and artwork dealing with topics such as ecology, plants, sustainability, conservation, and the natural world – we celebrate work by Texas artists, both well-known and emerging. The Welcome Center 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.
