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.

Labor Day yard chores at your house?

September 8

Wicked participants’ works are going on the road! As a result of the changed relocation requirements, we must ask that you use lightweight materials to glaze your frames rather than glass.

Cherokee Ranch and Castle will host the exhibit after the ACAD run ends on Halloween. Another venue wants our Wicked exhibit to travel to Durango! We did not anticipate such interest, but of course are thrilled for the opportunity. To keep our artwork safe and to assist in transportation we need you to use plexiglas or acrylic instead of glass when you frame your pieces. When you drop off your work, please have it wrapped securely with your name on the wrapping, which we will keep and use to re-package for transporting to the next venue.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Sharon Eaton, Patti Hearn or Vanessa Martin.  

Upcoming meetings: The meeting for September is cancelled, as we expect to be busy setting up Wicked early in October. The meeting for October 25 is scheduled for the Eloise May library - 1471 S. Parker Road, Denver 80231.

BBBQ: The Annual Backyard Bar-Be-Que on August 30 saw members gather and enjoy one another’s company and some good food.

Open Studio 9am – 1 pm, Tuesday, September 8, 2015 at Valkarie Gallery & Studio was well attended. We went to a nice lunch after the workshop.

Art in the Gardens: The August 22 show and sale at Tagawa was slow – very little traffic all over the Gardens --  but we who did attend enjoyed ourselves. Made some sales for our artists, talked ourselves up, handed out a few leaflets to prospective members, talked among ourselves.
