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.

Graphic presentations

It's not yet warm enough to anticipate a ripe tomato, but if this image doesn't have you jonesing for a BLT, you're probably not a tomato-lover! Created in mixed media, this graphic (print-like) image uses an uneven frame to create tension and interest, a party of polka dots for background interest and action, and uses mixed media to create sharp edges and shiny surfaces. I'm thinking it's time to toast up the whole-wheat and find the rest of the sandwich makin's, because it has to be tomato-time.

Tomato, mixed media, Frank Merrem
