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.

Now that the Taxes are Over...

Open Press Workshop

We’ve put together a workshop over 3 days -- 2 Saturdays and a Thursday -- at Open Press to learn drypoint printmaking techniques from Mark Lunning himself! The class is limited to 10 people, so please check your calendars and sign up early. 

Workshop cost is $100, a bargain since it includes basic materials. Here are dates and times:

          May 2, 2015 from 1-3:00pm
          May 9, 2015 from 1-5:00pm
          May 14, 2015 from 1-5:00pm

Location:  40 W. Bayaud Ave., Denver, Co.  (303) 778-1116

Mark Lunning, master printer and owner of Open Press, regularly teaches at the Art Students League. We are fortunate he is teaching this workshop exclusively for RMSBA. Do an Internet search and see some possibilities for this technique. Start thinking of what images you will want to make, as we expect to complete two plates.

Contact Vanessa Martin at martin.vanessa655@gmail.com to reserve space. Direct all questions to Vanessa.

Deadline Looms!

The deadline to email your intention to enter the Wicked Plants Exhibit is May 1, 2015. Email Sharon Eaton racereaton@aol.com  to let her know you intend to enter Wicked Plants.
