Next up in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall at BRIT is Botanical Art: Flowers, fruit and fungi, the first exhibition of the newly formed Botanical Art Collective of North Central Texas. This exhibit, which will hang from June 14 – August 9, is a celebration of the world of botany and will feature depictions of flowers, fruits, seeds, vegetables, fungi, and grasses executed in a variety of mediums by a variety of talented, local artists. Join us and explore the joyful intersection of two distinct yet closely related disciplines - botanical art and science.

The opening reception for Botanical Art: Flowers, fruit, and fungi will be on Thursday June 14 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Meet the artists and enjoy informal gallery talks.

 

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.
