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.

Texas Living Waters: Living Waters Film Screening: Fort Worth

Oct 26 2017 - 6:00pm to 11:00pm
Amon Carter Museum of American Art
3501 Camp Bowie Blvd
Fort Worth , TX

For so many Texans, our relationship with this state’s springs, creeks, rivers and bays goes deeper than a weekend pastime; the connection to our natural water features is life-affirming and even spiritual. More than just water supply sources, these wonders are deep wells of inspiration and adventure. But as population growth explodes and our water’s future is tugged and pulled in all directions, our decision-makers forget that our rivers and bays are the soul of Texas.

Living Waters looks through the eyes of a life-long advocate for our rivers, springs, and bays to tell the story of a state standing at the crossroads of its future. By listening to our water features and the wildlife that depend on them, we can change our path to protect our water, our wildlife, our kids, our economy and all the adventures to come.

The Living Waters short film was produced by Fin & Fur for the Texas Living Waters Project, a collaboration of the National Wildlife Federation, Sierra Club and Galveston Bay Foundation.
