Member Meeting March 26: Well, we had a lovely meeting at Lakewood Library. Space a little cramped, but we adjust so well. Interesting what we got to see: Carol Till brought some monoprint variations by substrate; Heidi Snyder brought two CP landscapes from nature: a footprint portrait (2”x3” presented at 11”x14”) of lichens, bryophytes, and pine needles, and a tree-trunk squirrel-cache of Ponderosa at familiar scale; Teresa Burkert brought some evocative CP winter vegetable portraits. Whoever I missed, contact me here and I’ll provide the proper citation.
ASBA Exhibits. Just want to say, we out-here-in-the-provinces-botanical-artists pay a pile to ASBA every year, and we ought to take advantage of their offerings and opportunities. Those folks aren’t doin’ this for their health; they’re trying to help us all out. Let yourself be helped. Consider: Out of the Woods; the International Day of Botanical Art; and assorted other opportunities you may find cited here. Please, please check out opportunities at the Mother Ship (ASBA).

Cannabis exhibit. Well, more moles keep sticking their heads up, and Vanessa (our President) is laboring mightily with the mallet to drive them back down. Think whack-a-mole. You might send Management a Message of Intent to Enter about your proposed participation in the Cannabis: a Visual Perspective exhibit. Entry date has been postponed to June 15, 2017, so you still have plenty of time. Did you know that Ida Pemberton herself produced three Cannabis plates? They have ‘em at CU!
Check back here from time to time for information about this, that, and the other thing before the end of next month.
