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.

Wow, have we been busy!

October meeting on Sunday, October 25, 1 – 3 pm, at the Eloise May library - 1471 S. Parker Road, Denver 80231. Lots on info on the agenda, including a recap of the ABSA meetings from those who attended. Please find it in your day to come to this one.

Renewal reminders will soon be coming your way. Start saving your quarters now. This is your early warning kicking in…

Wicked exhibit viewing, October 24, 11 am – 3 pm, ACAD Gallery, 1400 Dallas Street, Aurora, CO. Come support your fellow artists and stir up some action. Several of us occupied the gallery on Oct 17, and much music came in the doorway.

ASBA in Miami was attended by several of our members, who will recap the details at the meeting on October 25 (see above in this Blog). Join us for that.

Vanessa Martin took several copies of the RARE II catalog and sold out in an hour – lots of interest!

Dorothy DePaulo and Heidi Snyder reported on their Wild in the City book project – for which sales also were brisk.

Briony Morrow-Cribbs’ etching workshop provided food for thought and finished artworks, too!

The Wicked Opening on Saturday, October 10, at the ACAD Gallery was attended by happy, cheerful people, many of whom we’d never seen before! A Resident Artist (well, his studio and office are in that building, too) was overheard to say “This is the best exhibit we’ve ever had in here. This is really going raise our profile.” OK. Ours, too. (Fist bump.)
