Lennox Woods - The Ancient Forest is a multi-year project by artist Deborah Paris to explore and record the pristine beauty and magnificence of Lennox Woods Preserve in northeast Texas, one of the most pristine old growth forests in the state. Underwritten and sponsored by Galerie Kornye West of Ft. Worth, TX, the project will encompass forty works of art to be exhibited in multiple venues in 2014 and beyond. A film documenting the project has been commissioned and will be shown at the exhibitions, and a blog will chronicle the course of the project, recording what happens in the Woods, in the studio, and elsewhere in connection with this unique, multi-disciplinary project.

The Botanical Research Institute of Texas is thrilled to be a part of Lennox Woods and welcomes the public to join them in exploring this stunning exhibit. Lennox Woods and BRIT will be participating in the Spring Fort Worth Art Dealers Association Gallery Night on March 29, 2014.

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.
