Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists

Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists had their spring meeting today. Unfortunately not so many of the members were able to attend, this might have been because of the beautiful sunny Sunday and attracting ski trails…
RMSBA is the first regional chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) founded in 1997. The Society is open to all. If you have not yet done so, I encourage each and everyone in the Botanical Art and Illustration Program to join. By paying the RMSBA dues you also became automatically a full member of ASBA. Please, read about the other benefits by clicking here, you can also find the membership application from the same page.

The meetings always include lots of important and useful information besides networking and discussion. Today Madonna Guenthner gave an extremely useful demonstration about different techniques, how to transform the less attractive frames to beautiful and unique ones, which nicely will complement our unique art.
The RMSBA’s
SPRING exhibit is at the Wildlife Experience (April 7 – July 8). All members are eligible to display their work. The submission deadline is March 8. If you like to participate, but your piece might not be ready before March 8th , please call Glenne at 303-364-3927, or return the registration form - you might be able to finish it before the drop off day: March 25th. Reception for the exhibit is on Sunday, April 22 (5-7p.m.)
