Thank You!

Thank you for your generosity in 2016!
It is a great honor and a pleasure to recognize the many individuals, foundations, and institutions that support ASBA. Your generous contributions totaled over $70,000 in 2016. These donations support the work we do: publishing The Botanical Artist quarterly journal, curating and touring exhibitions, the design and publication of accompanying catalogs, planning and carrying out the annual conference, maintaining the ASBA website, providing grants in support of education and artistic development projects, and providing member services, bookkeeping and administrative support. Your generosity is vital to keeping our programs alive and growing.

We thank our Officers and Board of Directors who take on the responsibility of governing the organization and our superb staff whose leadership and dedication make it all happen. We appreciate our many committee chairs, committee members and volunteers who work diligently on our members’ behalf to keep them in-the-know publishing our e-newsletter, writing articles for the Journal, and posting updates to our social media outlets, as well as those who organize and manage our fundraising events.

We are indebted to The New York Botanical Garden who donates office space for our use. ASBA is grateful to Gregory Long, CEO and President; Barbara Corcoran, VP for Continuing and Public Education, and the entire staff at the Watson Building, including a super mail-room team. We thank Karen Daubmann, Associate Vice President for Exhibitions and Public Engagement, and her staff for furthering our partnership in NYBG’s continuing Triennial Exhibitions.

We are also grateful to artists whose donated artwork, books and other items power our on-line auction, art bazaar and portfolio sales. We appreciate the thought, effort, talent, wit and humor that our members offer at every turn. So keep up the great work, spread the joy, and please consider a legacy gift which will ensure ASBA continues its mission to provide a thriving interactive community, dedicated to perpetuating the tradition and contemporary practice of botanical art now and into the future.
