I've registered for the full package for the VIRTUAL 27th Annual Meeting and Conference of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) in October 2021.
I did this last year after I realised it's by far the best way of participating and getting maximum value - even if I didn't get to any of the Meet and Mingles because they were in the middle of the night here in London! I'd much rather spend my cash on hearing from other botanical artists than on hotels and flights - and I'm not getting on any of those anyway in the near future even if I am double jabbed!!
I very much RECOMMEND you try the Conference out if you didn't register last year. It's the only way you will ever get to see so many top botanical art people in once place - in the comfort of your own home! Plus you can even wear your PJs for the teaching/talk sessions as nobody can see you!
No plane tickets, no hotel, no travel, just sit back, relax, and enjoy 4+ days of immersion in all things "botanical art" from the comfort of your own home. Connect with botanical art enthusiasts from across the country and around the world. Share your passion and be inspired by the art and artistic journeys of your fellow ASBA members as you engage in the variety of sessions being offered.

Start on the ONLINE IN OCTOBER OVERVIEW page on the ASBA website to read about everything to do with this event
In order to enjoy maximum participation you MUST be a member of ASBA.
However non-members can also participate in certain events.
PDF files are available to download which provide comprehensive details of what's on offer - and the conditions of registration.
HOW THE TIMING WORKS
Do read the Time Zone Chart (above) to see how feasible it is for you!
All the events are timed for Eastern Time (i.e. New York) - which for UK people is 5 hours earlier than in London.
So this is how it works for me:

Dare to be Square - the non-juried virtual exhibition of small works of botanical art by members of the American Society of Botanical Artists attending ASBA's virtual conference is now available for all to see online on YouTube (see below)
The Small Works Online Exhibition Premiere slideshow premiere of "Dare to be Square" occurred at the Welcome Reception on Wednesday, October 14th
The 23rd Annual International of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) opens today at Wave Hill - at 675 West 252nd Street, Bronx, NY. The exhibition comprises two-dimensional, original, botanical art and runs until 6th December 2020. (See end for notes about social distancing / booking etc).
ASBA have set up a Virtual Exhibition Online - on their website - click each picture to see a larger image.
The 46 artworks in the exhibition were selected from a field of 178 entries - and include
The exhibition is a collaboration between ASBA and Wave Hill and some of the artwork represents plant specimens grown at Wave Hill. The exhibition was organized by Carol Woodin, Director of Exhibitions at the American Society of Botanical Artists; Jennifer McGregor, Senior Director of Arts, Education and Programs at Wave Hill; and Eileen Jeng Lynch, Wave Hill’s Curator of Visual Arts.
An Exhibition Catalogue is available for purchase from both Wave Hill and ASBA:
Adding to my challenge, I chose to work on a thin hard paper – Schoellershammer G4. This is similar to Bristol board; coated, very smooth. It takes ink well and hates water. It is almost like working on vellum. This paper will not put up with a single mistake. You can't scrape it or wash off. A very dry brush with tiny strokes is the only solution.
