Gallery Night

Join us as we celebrate the arrival of fall with our biggest Gallery Night at BRIT event ever!

We'll be showcasing five exhibits, we'll be celebrating the gorgeous new Stansbery Collection for Botanical Art with a ribbon cutting ceremony in our Library, and we'll be playing host to 28 artisans working in a variety of mediums as a part of the second annual Gallery Night Artisan Market. Our exhibits are Botanical Art - 6 Ways featuring the work of six regional botanical artists  in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall, The Fifth Kingdom by Denis Benjamin in the Welcome Center Gallery, Outside/In by Carol Benson on the Prairie, and Among the Birds and Flora of Texas in the BRIT Library.

This year BRIT's First Saturday and Gallery Night fall on the same day so it will be a full and fun day.
