The Botanical Artists of Canada
BAC’s mission is to provide a sustainable and supportive community promoting, encouraging, and inspiring excellence in traditional and contemporary botanical art within Canada. Our vision for botanical art and illustration is to have it be acknowledged and respected as a significant art form recognized for scientifically capturing the essence and characteristics of plants and fungi and to encourage ecological awareness, conservation, and the protection of the diversity of species for future generations.
We value accuracy and a high standard of artistic and botanical excellence through the fusion of scientific analysis and precise detail with the creative visual process of art. Membership is open to artists, collectors of botanical art and those interested in botany, horticulture, ecology and conservation. BAC encourages its members to extend their knowledge and skills by learning through classes, workshops, and lectures. We also seek to collaborate with other like-minded organizations to bring botanical art to broader audiences.
