More about the AHBAS

The AHBAS, a regional chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA), is based in Pittsburgh, with members from Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and West Virginia.

Formed in 2001, the AHBAS was recognized as the second regional chapter of ASBA. The group was organized to provide an educational and social forum for members to improve their artistic skills and increase their botanical knowledge.

Through their annual flora project and local exhibitions, the chapter strives to educate the public on plant diversity, native plant ecology, and conservation and is always looking for new members whether a novice or professional. Members use many types of media such as watercolor, graphite, colored pencils, and printmaking.
