Flower painting is a specialty that is increasingly in demand. This is perhaps also due to the fact that only artists who have a personal passion for flowers and their artistic representation specialize in this field. One organization in which flower artists come together is the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA). This association of flower artists is a guarantee for high quality contemporary botanical art. Now the flower painter Marieluise Barbara Bantel is also a member of the ASBA and can be found in the artists’ gallery of the organization.
The non-profit organization ASBA is open to members from all over the world. It has been cultivating the field of botanical art since 1994 and has set itself the task of promoting public awareness of contemporary botanical art and encouraging its development. The ASBA recognizes the high standards of the art created by its members and promotes the artists. It also creates awareness of botanical art as a living art form through exhibitions in major museums around the world. The aim is to enrich the lives of its members and the general public through botanical art. The ASBA is also committed to honoring the rich tradition and history of botanical art. On the other hand, the organization also uses the power of botanical art to raise ecological awareness.
For the flower artist Marieluise Bantel, these were all very good arguments to join the ASBA. Her flower painting can be found there in the members gallery.
