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.

Member Galleries

SHOW YOUR WORK and inspire others

The Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists has an exciting roster of events lined up for 2015 and beyond. We look forward to growing our organization and we continually seek ways to get our artwork in front of appreciative collectors and supporters. We are restructuring our blog Member Gallery to incorporate support from our larger organization, the American Society of Botanical Artists. We are all members of ASBA, which offers each of us the opportunity to display our work in the ASBA online artists' gallery.

We hope to get more participation from our members, as we can anticipate an eager national and even international audience. The ASBA member Gallery can also be used as a resource and inspiration for our botanical work. The RMSBA blog gallery hereafter will include a hyperlink to each member's ASBA gallery page. Artists' actual images will no longer appear on the RMSBA blog.

To prepare your work for display, have the following information at hand before loading images onto the ASBA site or forwarding them to the member gallery email as provided below.

Brief bio

You can create your gallery in two ways. First option: Forward the above information in an email to membergallery@asba-art.org, where the Webmaster will create your page within a few days. Second option: You can upload your information to the ASBA on-line form yourself. To get to the form, you need to log into the ASBA site. Go to the Dashboard – Member features page. Click on the link for Create Member Gallery. Follow the directions on the form and save.

Your gallery page should appear on the ASBA site in 2 or 3 days. When this happens, drop an email to rmsbartists@gmail.com, and we will place a link on the blog to get viewers to your ASBA member gallery page.

For members who already have an ASBA gallery page, you can update your images and keep current your images and bio information. You can use the on-line form or email your changes to membergallery@asba-art.org.

We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your art work. Happy posting!
