What’s the Future of Wildlife in Texas?
For the past several years BRIT has taken part in the Fort Worth Art Dealer’s Association Gallery Night, an event designed to highlight the unique cultural richness of the visual arts community in Fort Worth. Come visit BRIT's two distinct gallery spaces on Spring Gallery Night in March and Fall Gallery Night in September, then pick up a map of other participating galleries, museums, retail businesses, and area restaurants, and enjoy the many artists featured during this community event. Gallery Night is free and open to the public.
