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.

Late July: Flower Explosion on Kenosha Pass

July Meeting

We meet at Hudson Gardens on South Santa Fe Drive from 1-3 on Sunday, July 26. Enter through the gift shop; no charge. Several areas will be closed off and unavailable for sketching, including the water features and Monet gardens, as they are setting up for a concert later that day. 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!

If you are a Wicked entrant, you can bring your forms and fees and turn them in, and beat the drop-dead date of August 1, 2015.

Art in the Garden August 22nd, 9 am – 5 pm – Tagawa Garden Center

This year’s Tagawa Gardens event has a full day of activities in the theme Art in the Garden.  First, of course, the RMSBA artists' show and sale, then workshops taught by Sharon Garrett and Patti Hearn: Shading and Watercoloring for Kids, and Doodle Art for Tweens & Teens. Also featured are other workshops conducted by local artists. We will enjoy music and performance by the Rocky Mountain Highland Dancers. This year’s event offers a perfect venue to talk to the public about our organization and to showcase our artists. 

This is your opportunity to sell and share your art work: we can’t hang framed pieces, but can make prints, note cards and other botanically-themed articles available to the general public.  If you want to sell your artwork, assist with a workshop, or just be a part of the event, please sign up by sending an email to Patti Hearn at pattihearn@hotmail.com.  Sign up by August 17 at the latest, and the sooner the better so we can get organized and make this a successful and fun event. More details will be provided to participants.
