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.

It’s Independence Day! (…tomorrow)

Happy Birthday, USA.
July Meeting
We are on for Hudson Gardens on South Santa Fe Drive from 1-3 on Sunday, July 26. Enter through the gift shop to go in at no charge. Several areas will be closed off and so not available for sketching, including the water features and Monet gardens, as they are setting up for a concert later that day. There is no meeting room, but the attendees can gather (in a shady spot) and catch up on the latest news, and then off to plein aire sketching!

Tagawa Gardens
On Saturday, August 22, we have an RMSBA event at Tagawa Gardens in Parker. It’s an opportunity to sell works of art, cards, matted pieces, etc. Patti Hearn will meet with a TG representative on July 16 to iron out specifics. TG takes 10% of sales and also the tax load. They apparently do not have equipment to hang framed art, but we hope for a counter for cards and notes, etc., and a few fabric bins for matted pieces. More information to follow!
