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.

…and at last the Sun shone upon the Land…

Graduation Congratulations go out to the proud parents, aunts and uncles (and Grands and Greats) supporting various forms of student life this high school and college commencement season. Your persistence has paid off, and another generation has moved a tassel from right to left. Next stop: the Twilight Zone (better than your basement).

Helen Byers wants us to come to New Mexico to play and draw! She has recently joined our organization, and offers some opportunities for formal instruction in northern New Mexico.

RARE II is now receiving visitors at the Raton Museum (108 South 2nd Street, Raton, NM) through the end of the month. Go catch the show and the wildflowers.

Tryptich Gallery, Norlin Library (N345) at CU Boulder. The Shakespeare’s Bouquet exhibit is hung in this lovely space adjacent to the Rare Books Room. A life-size Flat Will is the thorn between a sweet Rosa rugosa portrait (his right hand) and an aggressive Rosa alba-Rosa gallica group portrait (his left). Do find time to visit this joint CU-SBAI event, which in August will accompany the First Folio during its stay in Boulder.

Open Studio was lots of fun. We had a little carbon dust demonstration, a trio of pears in colored pencil, lovely birds, and pencil dust generally filled the air. A quartet for lunch – a lovely second Tuesday. Join us in June. 

ArtBag Reminder. Here’s the ad. Just get one. (or two, if you need different sizes)
