About Federation of Canadian Artists:


Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) is a national organization Founded in Kingston, Ontario in 1941 and now headquartered in Vancouver. The Federation of Canadian Artists was instrumental in formation of the Massey Commission in 1949 and the subsequent formation of the Canadian Council for the Arts. In the west, the FCA established the Painting in the Parks program in British Columbia in the 1950's, a program funded by the Canada Council and copied around the world.  Notable past chairmen of the FCA in the BC region included Alan Edwards, B.C. Binning, Donald Jarvis, Gordon Smith and JAS McDonald.  The FCA currently has nine chapters throughout BC and Alberta and a permanent gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver.


The Victoria Chapter of the FCA with its 150 members from Sooke to Lands End and from Parksville to Saltspring and the Gulf Islands, offers regular programs and workshops to raise artistic standards by stimulating participants to reach greater heights of achievement. The Victoria Chapter includes notables such as Robert Bateman, David Goatley, Catherine Moffat, Clement Kwan, Marcia Semenoff, Margot Clayton, Marney Ward, Peter Paterson, Mary Ann Laing and Anne Hudec.


Each year in the spring and fall, the Chapter holds a show juried by FCA signature members (those who have attained high standing in the Federation). Approximately 100 paintings are submitted, with one third to one half selected for the show. Jurors look for the "wow" factor, good composition, mastery of the artist's medium and tecnique and originality of style. The result is a first class exhibition, bound to delight, inspire and showcase the region's top talent. All works of art are available for sale.
