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.

Changing site, changing conditions

Member Susi Olson was in Rio de Janiero on business and took a few moments time out to paint. She reports:
"Wet on wet takes on a whole new meaning in the tropics. Quick watercolor in between science time! There is a small forest of "cannon ball trees" near the Center. What a wild looking tree and the flower is breathtaking."
