Welcome to the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California

The Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California (BAGSC) is a chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists, dedicated to encouraging the development of botanical art and the promotion of public awareness of this artistic tradition. We strive to illustrate the diversity of plant life, as well as bring attention to those species and ecosystems which are imperiled.
