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.

Welcome to Fall

WICKED Exhibit at ACAD Gallery

Remember to use plexiglas or acrylic instead of glass when framing your illustrations for this exhibit. Michael’s informs us that acrylic is indeed expensive, but so much lighter and less fragile than glass, and you need to get it now if you haven’t done so already. Turn in your work at ACAD gallery on October 7.

Bin work will be available for purchase from the night of the reception through the end of the show.  Gallery will be open to the public for the opening reception October 10, October 17, October 24, and for the closing reception October 31.

“Bin work” consists of unframed (usually matted, but that’s optional) pieces of artwork, and may be prints or originals.

Eligibility is limited to any artists participating in the exhibit, who must notify Sharon Eaton or Patti Hearn before October 5 if planning to bring Bin Work. 

Each artist can submit up to ten unframed 2-D works. All artwork must be botanically-themed, but may include other elements such as wildlife and insects. Protect work in clear plastic covers.

On a typed inventory sheet, list title, media, and price of each artwork along with your contact information. Submit it with your bin work on October 7 when you drop off your Wicked illustration(s). Place a small label and price on the front upper corner of the cover for each piece of artwork. Label the back of the work with title, whether original or print, price, artist’s name, phone number and email. Inventory sheet and label details must match.

A commission of 30% for sold work goes to the Aurora Cultural Arts District (ACAD). RMSBA will handle the sales and issue payments on sold work within 30 days after the end of the show. Applicable fees will be deducted. 

You will be asked to volunteer at least once to staff the Gallery housing the Bin Work, on October 17 or October 24, 11am – 3pm. We will set up 2 hour shifts; minimum of two people per shift. If you have a professional quality black canvas floor bin, please bring.  We have several but can always use more.

Pick up for unsold Bin Work has yet to be determined; we anticipate Monday, November 2. More details will be provided later.
