“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

Join us for ASBA’s 28th Annual Meeting & Conference in Tarrytown, Westchester County, NY, October 20-22, 2022.


The Tri-State Botanical Artists of New York Botanical Garden (TSBA of NYBG) invites you to join us in Tarrytown for ASBA’s 28th Annual Meeting and Conference.

Time to begin again, renew, reconnect. Nowhere is the autumn season more glorious than in New York’s Hudson Valley. This is the backdrop for our “begin again” in-person conference.

Enjoy the New York Botanical Garden in all its autumnal splendor -- and the acclaimed Kiku chrysanthemum show.

Explore, learn, and refine techniques taught by world-class instructors.

Be inspired by expert lecturers and panelists.

Observe fellow artists draw and paint New York heirloom apples in “The Big Apple Challenge” – bid for those works in a silent auction.

Enjoy the ever-popular Small Works Exhibition and Portfolio Sharing. Shop the Art Bazaar.

Try new materials and tools offered by an array of art supply vendors.

Revel in historic properties and countryside tours along the Hudson River.

Enjoy gatherings over breakfast, lunch, dinners, receptions, and informal interest groups.

It’s all yours.


The TSBA circle is thrilled to be hosting the first post-pandemic in-person conference in the beautiful state of New York! Come immerse yourself in Botanical Instruction for all levels and reconnect with friends from near and far in all that the Metropolitan area has to offer. This year’s conference will have opportunities to visit the world-renowned New York Botanical Garden in all its fall splendor as well as the gardens of Untermeyer with its spectacular views of the Hudson River and Wave Hill where the ASBA Annual exhibition will be held this year. Considering the time of year, what a great place to be to enjoy the Halloween favorites of Sleepy Hollow and the Great Pumpkin Blaze. The area lays claim to many historic sights such as Lyndhurst Mansion, Washington Irving's Sunnyside as well as Kykuit, the John D, Rockefeller Estate and Philipsburg Manor.

Mark your calendar and plan to join us in October 2022!

For our members unable to travel, we are creating an Online in October track – a scaled-back option, not as full as the last two years when “online” was THE conference – but still an opportunity to connect and be part of the conference experience. More details on that as plans develop. 

Bonus for In-person attendees: registration will include access to all recorded content for three weeks following the conference.    

Health and Safety at the Conference

You can plan on attending the conference with confidence that health and safety policies have been put in place and procedures will be rigorously followed to create the safest conference experience possible.

 

When contracting with the conference hotel – the Marriott Westchester – hotel policies and procedures were carefully considered. In December, the ASBA Executive Committee of the Board of Directors adopted the following policy as we began to recruit instructors:

ASBA will follow all local guidelines as well as CDC recommendations in place at the time of the October, 2022 conference. All conference attendees will be required to be vaccinated (in accordance with CDC guidelines) and to produce proof of vaccination.

CLASS The Lure of Black and White (with a hint of tint) with Monica Ray
CLASS The Lure of Black and White (with a hint of tint) with Monica Ray
On a Black and White scale, there is on the one end Pitch Black, the dullest and darkest of the blacks and on the other end Snow White, the purest and brightest of the whites. All other tints and tones in between these two extremes – from whites through greys to blacks that are found in nature – possess a hint of color. In this workshop, students will explore the many different shades, such as yellowish white, greenish grey, and brownish black to name a few. With graphite as the medium (traditional and water-soluble pencils, blocks, and the powdered form, as well as tinted graphite pencils), a light or neutral colored botanical subject of choice will be portrayed on suitable tinted paper as the substrate.

Techniques Showcase Online Friday
Techniques Showcase Online Friday
Shevaun Doherty, Julia Trickey, and Margaret Best demonstrate techniques in three distinct segments in a Live Zoom Webinar with Q and A.

Shevaun Doherty - "Mighty Mosses"- Let’s look closely at the mosses! These tiny plants cover 3% of our planet but are responsible for 30% of Carbon sequestration. Discover the techniques needed to paint bryophytes and learn interesting facts about the different types of mosses, their botany, and why we should all appreciate the humble moss!

Julia Trickey - "Celebrating Imperfection: Painting Fading Flowers" - What is distinct about fading rather than fresh flowers and how can their enduring elegance be captured in watercolor? Julia shares her thoughts on what features to emphasis and demonstrates her favored techniques and processes for creating accurate portraits of fading flowers.

Margaret Best - "Edges and Overlaps - depth and contrast with colour" - Linking the intimate relationship of colour and value is one of the biggest challenges for both beginner and more advanced artists. This is especially important where elements of a plant overlap. Margaret will focus on how to intensely observe and interpret values to capture essential contrasts at overlapping edges that contribute to depth and realism.

CLASS The Humble Pencil with Margareta Perti
Pencils are an essential tool in botanical illustration and drawing in general. However, we often underestimate the possibilities of the humble pencil. A simple pencil in your hand can translate the visual impression from your eye/brain onto the paper. In this workshop, you will learn about the properties and potential of your pencils.
We will start by comparing a variety of hard and soft pencils through shading a labelled grid. We will then experiment with line drawing, cross-hatching and shading. Finally, we will explore our subject, a leek, first with a blind line drawing and then finishing with a detailed study on Bristol board.

Techniques Showcase Online Saturday
Heeyoung Kim, Crystal Shin, and Mary Dillon demonstrate techniques in three distinct segments in a Live Zoom Webinar with Q and A.

Heeyoung Kim - "Exploring Masking Fluid for Hairy and Fuzzy Effects in Watercolor" - Hairy stems. Fuzzy pods. Feathery seeds… Are these something you have avoided to tackle in watercolor? If so, learning how to use masking fluid might change your experiences with these tricky botanical subjects. Its application and the painting process afterwards are not simple or easy by any means, but the results will add extraordinary features to your botanical watercolor, once it is well executed. Are you ready to try it with step-by-step instructions by Heeyoung Kim? Learn how to apply marking fluid. Learn how to finish up the details after masking fluid is removed.

Crystal Shin - "Achieving Color Saturation and Luminosity in Colored Pencil"- Do you want to bring the deep, rich saturation so often only found in watercolor to your colored pencil work? Celebrating the lively and vibrant red colors of tomatoes and apples, Crystal will explain how to perceive subtle underlying colors, and demonstrate her careful layering techniques, resulting in smooth, luminous textures and glowing colors.

Mary Dillon - ‘Warm Rich and Deep - Painting Autumn Fruit in Watercolour.’ - Exploring how to achieve warm, rich and deep autumn colour by layering transparent watercolour. Taking the exquisite glowing colour of Pomegranate as our inspiration, I will focus on how to layer first wet and then dry watercolour techniques to achieve the diverse range of colours we see in autumn fruit.

CLASS "Pencil this!" Botanical Drawing in Graphite with Irina Neacsu
CLASS "Pencil this!" Botanical Drawing in Graphite with Irna Neacsu
With a strong background in architecture and interior design, graphite is still my favourite medium while my drawing (and drawing teaching) focuses on architectural approaches such as strong compositions, aerial perspectives, realistic capturing of light and shadow, volume geometrical construction. I believe that this knowledge can easily be transferred to watercolour, as well as to pen&ink. Even more, it enables easy sketching and journaling, when it comes to handling fast lines. The workshop is recommended to intermediates, but also to advanced students who would want to sharpen their skills. I will be focusing on how to tell a story through composition and how to handle volume, textures and perspective without the help of colour.

Using Fall botanicals as subjects, learn how to create deep ranges of tonal values; white or light veins and hairs on dark petals and leaves; large areas of smooth, even tones; and detailed textures. Experiment with adding subtle color to your graphite drawings. These techniques work on paper, vellum and film, and with colored pencils too! We will share some specialized supplies in class, and hand out individual goody bags of other supplies to try during the workshop and take home (powdered graphite, water-soluble graphite and more!).
