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 special treat for RMSBA members will occur at this upcoming meeting, to be held at the Denver Botanic Gardens Helen Fowler Library. Librarian April Miller will present treasures from the Library and Art Collections holdings, ranging from 15th century herbals to scientific artwork created by and for explorers to contemporary masters like Anne Ophelia Dowden. These amazing pieces of botanical art and illustration history will provide information, a link to the past, and most of all, inspiration to the botanical artist. Mark your calendars! You won't want to miss this.
