Upcoming Events

David Conn

Paintings and Prints, 2000-2016

More Info >

The Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall at BRIT is pleased to play host to local artist, master printmaker and founder of Shaw Street Studio, David Conn. This group of paintings and prints is a retrospective exhibition that starts with Blackstonian from the forest near the Mosel River in Germany and ends with winter scenes from his boyhood in Sussex, New Jersey. Following a realist tradition, Conn carves an image into a linoleum block using one tool. Then, by enlarging the image to a painting scale the lines between representation and abstraction are interwoven, creating a sense of being in and of the forest.  

BRIT will be open from 4pm – 9pm on Gallery Night, Saturday September 9, with a public reception from 6pm – 8pm and a gallery talk by the artist at 6:15pm. For more information about the artist, please visit http://shawstreetstudio.com/.

BRIT Members are invited to join us for Champagne and Conversation with the Artist on September 9 from 5–6 p.m. in the Oak Board Room. Seating is limited - RSVP is Required, please email membership@BRIT.org.  Not a Member? Not a Problem. Join Today.

Emerging Artists: All Saints' Episcopal School

More Info >

All Saints’ Episcopal School of Fort Worth is delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the artistic works of our Upper School, Middle School and Lower School art students, photography students, alumni, and art educators at BRIT in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall from November 3 – December 15, 2017. The art pieces express botanical subject matter in a variety of styles, including Photorealism, Impressionism, and Abstraction. Works will reflect a wide range of media, including pencil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic and encaustic.

The All Saints’ Episcopal School of Fort Worth’s Visual Arts Program aims to motivate students to explore essential questions, which will result in developing and expanding visual perception, aesthetic awareness, historic perspective, artistic skills and techniques and critical thinking practices. Through a sequential, developmental curriculum alignment, emphasizing critical thinking, students have the opportunity to learn and analyze works of art while gaining the skills of fine artisanship. The overall objective is for students to emerge with refined technical skills, a well-informed appreciation of the expression of others, and confidence to cultivate art reflecting their artistic visions.
