"Natural Beauty" 
Silver Educational Center Gallery
November 25, 2015 - January 9, 2016
Brigid Hume O'Brien was a loving mother, a doting grandmother, a passionate environmentalist, and a talented artist. She studied at several art centers from Rowayton to coastal Maine and with many different teachers including Diane Faxon, Barbara Nechis, Frank Webb, and Stanley Maltzman. Brigid loved to visit National Parks and other places of exquisite natural beauty, and to render their flowers and landscapes in her beloved watercolor paints.

All are invited to experience some Brigid's beautiful interpretations of botanical environments at the Bartlett Arboretum, a place that was very dear to her heart.
The Gallery is open Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., or by appointment.
