Botanical Research Institute of Texas: David Conn Paintings and Prints - Fort Worth

Sep 8 2017 - 4:00pm to Oct 26 2017 - 4:00pm
Botanical Research Institute of Texas
1700 University Dr
Fort Worth , TX

 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 Sept. 9, 4 p.m. – 9 p.m. on Gallery Night with a public reception from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. and a gallery talk by the artist at 6:15 p.m.

Whole Foods Market
Preston Road and Forest Lane
Dallas , TX

Learn the fundamentals of navigating your way in the wilderness in this fun and comprehensive two-night class taught by experienced Sierra Club leaders. Some discussion about GPS, but our main focus is learning how to use a map and compass so you can explore safely and you're not trusting your navigation (and life) to something that takes batteries. Class meets in the upstairs meeting room at Whole Foods Market, SE corner, Preston Road and Forest Lane in Dallas. This two-night class starts at 6:30 PM and finishes about 8:45 PM. Cost is $35 for members and $40 for non-members. Cost covers both nights and handout materials. Sign up online by Tue or pay at the door. A half-day hike the following Saturday or Sunday with the class instructors will be offered to class participants who want to practice their new skills.
