Welcome to the Federation of Canadian Artists Calgary Chapter (FCA Calgary). We are a collective of professional and semi-professional Calgary and area artists who meet regularly to share our love of art and art-making. We offer everyone the opportunity to learn and enhance their visual communication skills in workshops and demonstrations. We also regularly host juried exhibitions of members work to be enjoyed and purchased by the public at large.
Learn more about our parent organization, the Federation of Canadian Artists.
The FCA Calgary Chapter hosts several exhibitions each year where Active Members can present and sell their original artwork to the general public. All artwork presented at the show is selected by a jury of FCA members, ensuring a consistent and high quality of workmanship.

The FCA Calgary Chapter hosts a number of workshops throughout the year. Workshops are open to FCA Calgary members and the general public. Our workshop coordinators work hard to find outstanding instructors who can help the membership expand their technical skills. Past workshop instructors include Mike Svob, Sandy Maudlin, Sarah Yeoman, Jane Davies, and more.

The FCA Calgary Chapter offers two primary levels of membership: Supporting and Active. While all members may attend chapter meetings, workshops and other events, only Active Members may participate in our juried exhibitions. Members must belong to our parent organization as well as the Calgary Chapter. Memberships are valid from January to December, and your national membership includes a subscription to Art Avenue magazine, a biweekly e-newsletter and discounted rates on advertising. New members who join October to December will have their membership extended to the following year.
You can pay for membership online or at one of our monthly meetings.
Everyone is welcome to attend our chapter meetings to get to know our members and learn more about the FCA. We often have a painting demonstration or some other lecture of interest to new and established artists as part of our monthly meeting.
We meet on third Tuesday of every month from
September to May (Excluding December)
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
6110-34 St. SW, Calgary, AB
