Joyce Westner, President, NESBA
For the first time, the Annual Meeting and Conference of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) will be held in scenic New England. The local chapter, the New England Society of Botanical Artists (NESBA), is planning to make the October conference memorable! To help botanical artists decide whether they would like to attend, or what they might do if they’re already planning to attend, NESBA has created a Boston ASBA 2011 blog. Subscribe to this new blog to find out about the terrific instructors, wonderful classes, field trips, forums and demonstrations that will define this memorable experience.
During the conference, the public is invited to view the Small Works exhibit at the Boston Marriott Newton, Oct 27-29, 2011. While small works are required to be no larger than 9″ x 12″, the magnitude of the art itself will be limited only by the artist’s imagination and skill.
The New England Society of Botanical Artists is a chapter of the ASBA and has 120 members. Members’ work is featured annually at the Boston Flower and Garden Show and other venues throughout New England. Most NESBA members live in six New England States and a few mid-West states as well.
