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.

A few things...

Carol Till opens her exhibit at Spark Gallery this Friday, February 1, 2013. About half the show is botanicals and it shows how she has adapted botanical art in her printmaking.
Shee'll be at the gallery from 12-5 PM every Thursday during the exhibit, so drop by then if you'd like.


Art contests and competitions come from many places, some you might not expect. Benefits include prize money, prizes of materials and new showcases for your work. 

Here are a couple of interest:

Here's a call from a lovely museum in Maryland, in conjunction with the Smithsonian.


Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

In Association with the Smithsonian Institution
P.O. Box 99, 13480 Dowell Road, Dowell (Solomons), MD 20629 t. 410.326.4640
Artworks on the themes of earth, air, fire and water are be solicited. Botanical art could make some nice contributions to such a show.
Go to www.annmariegarden.org or email info@annmariegarden.org  for further information.
You can also go to http://www.asingularcreation.com/call-for-artists.php for a really extensive listing of competition and art exhibition calls from around the country.
Who knows, 2013 might be the year you travel to wonderful places with your art!

Did you know the GNSI is holding their annual conference in Denver in 2014? Yep, it's true. In July, some really talented and generous artists will gather together to learn, share, and, I'm told, party well! If you'd like to help with planning, have ideas who you'd like to hear speak, or want to know about this neat event, contact Marjorie Leggitt. You need not be a member to particpate.

AND of course, the ASBA conference is in Denver in October, 2014, and we need volunteers, ideas for speakers, and a variety of other help to make it a wonderful event. It's the 20th Anniversary conference for the ASBA. Historical note: we sponsored the conference meeting in 2001, and had the first comprehensive workshop/lecture/field trip and demos ever presented. How cool is that? Contact Susan Fisher if you would like to help with that. Non-members are invited to particpate, and to join RMSBA for further neat events that support you and your art.
