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.

Sharon Eaton, tender of the “Wicked” entries, again reminds entrants that entry forms and fees are due August 1, 2015. Check your e-mail for pertinent forms. Describe the wickedness your plant manifests, so it can be noted on your artwork’s ID plaque.

You may hand-deliver your completed forms and fees: bring them to our July 28th meeting at Hudson Gardens. For any questions, contact her by e-mail at racereaton@aol.com, or call 571-225-1617.
