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.
