Betty Ford Alpine Gardens will feature “Lost in the Woods,” a juried exhibition of contemporary botanical illustrations featuring the majesty and mystery of trees. The 27 original works of art, presented by the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists, encourage an appreciation for the wide diversity of trees and meet criteria for scientific accuracy, aesthetics, and technical mastery.

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.

Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists encourages and participates in educational outreach, juried and non-juried exhibits, lectures, workshops and regular chapter meetings. They are proud to be the very first chapter affiliation of the international organization, the American Society of Botanical Artists.

The Betty Ford Alpine Gardens are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The exhibition is up until April 18, 2020.
