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 Art at BRIT

Art at BRIT offers two distinctive art viewing spaces: the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the smaller, more intimate Upper Atrium Collections Gallery. The Samples Exhibit Hall showcases botanical art and artwork dealing with topics such as ecology, plants, sustainability, conservation, and the natural world – we highlight work by local and national artists, both well-known and emerging. The Upper Atrium Collections 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.

During this time, we have online exhibitions for you to learn from and enjoy. Please click on the links below.
