Mission Statement

The Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists is an open and diverse group of artists, collectors and admirers who share a love for the practice and perpetuation of botanical art and illustration with a fond focus on plants in the Rocky Mountain Region.
We encourage and participate in educational outreach, juried and non-juried exhibits, lectures, workshops and regular chapter meetings. The RMSBA is proud to be the very first chapter affiliation of the international organization, the American Society of Botanical Artists.

RARE II Begins Planning

Introducing RARE II

Seven RMSBA members who wanted to continue the Rare, Imperiled Plants of Colorado program met in April to discuss continuing this program. It was agreed to continue illustrating Colorado's rare plants, but to focus on the list of globally imperiled plants in the state. That list numbers 121, and 29 of the plants were illustrated in Rare. The idea is to have the remaining 92 plants illustrated by fall of 2014, when the ASBA annual meeting will be in Denver. Could there be RARE II exhibits, books, educational programs, grants to cover framing costs? We need volunteers to make any of that happen.

There will be information about the RARE II program and time for your input at the summer RMSBA meeting.  Come with your ideas and ready to volunteer.

The Call for Entries will be posted on the blog, as well as the imperiled plants list for sign-up.
