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.

Now that the Curtain has closed once more…

Winterlude: Botanical Promises opens tomorrow, November 4, at Gallery Bleu, Bas Bleu Theater, 401 Pine Street, Fort Collins, CO. The Artists’ Opening Reception is from 5 – 7 pm. We can expect great things from the Exhibit Chairs, Sharon Eaton and Patti Hearn, and the Curator, Mary McCauley, who will have labored mightily to design and hang the exhibit. Prints, cards, and other artistic outputs from the exhibitors are available. Please be there to congratulate the artists and the designers! 

If you can’t make it this week, come to the December 2 Artist Reception. Both the opening and the holiday receptions will coincide with Fort Collins Art Walks.

New book from University of Chicago Press. Botanical and scientific posters once adorned the walls of America’s classrooms. Here’s a new compendium.

Artist-in-Residence programs in the National Parks. In mid to late November, the US National Parks post announcements for their AIR opportunities. Usually applications are due in mid to late December. The US Park Service oversees more than 400 locations, and many of these offer such opportunities. Check with the particular site that interests you (Mesa Verde NP, Homestead NM, etc.) for the latest information.

RMSBA Board meeting November 7, 11 am - 2 pm, at Hooked on Colfax, 3213 E. Colfax Ave, Denver.
