The botanical art tradition combines science and art. Botanical artists seek to understand the structure of plants and to communicate this knowledge to their audience in an aesthetically pleasing manner. While botanical art encompasses a range of styles, the focus of the ASBA is on work that conforms to the above definition, whether it takes the form of scientific illustration or realistic drawing and painting of botanical subjects.
Incorporated in February 1995, the ASBA is open to all artists and others interested in furthering the development of botanical art. Annual participation is open to individuals and institutions worldwide. To join, please see our Membership page.
