GNSI Northwest was founded in 1979. The group is centered in the Puget Sound area, with members from all over Washington State. Meetings are held 4 times yearly, and include technique demonstrations, workshops, portfolio sharing, and field trips.
The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators-Northwest (GNSI-NW) is a non-profit organization of artists in the Pacific Northwest that focus on illustrating the natural world. GNSI-NW provides members with learning and networking opportunities through quarterly meetings, workshops, and exhibitions.
The training and interests of GNSI-NW members are in both science and art. They study sciences including biology, botany, zoology, archeology, medicine, marine life, and ecology. Their tools and techniques for visual communication include drawing, painting, and digital media.
Applying scientific discipline to creativity, members strive to produce images rendered with scientific accuracy and artistic integrity, and to share those images with the public so that others may understand and appreciate both the science and the art.
