BRIT is pleased to welcome back well-known Texas artist Deborah Paris to the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall. Paris’ exciting new exhibit of paintings and drawings, The Nature of Things: Daphne Prairie, will give the Fort Worth public a rare opportunity to see depictions of the untouched and historic Daphne Prairie located in east Texas. The exhibition will hang September 10–October 21 at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. An opening reception with light hors d’oeuvres and libations will be held on Fall Gallery Night, Saturday, September 10, from 4-8 p.m. A gallery talk by the artist will take place September 10 at 6 p.m. RSVPs are not necessary.

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.
