About the FCA Calgary Chapter

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 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.

Welcome! The FCA Calgary Chapter offers two primary levels of membership: Supporting and Active. Every Calgary Chapter membership entitles you to attend chapter meeting with interesting presenters, demos, and other events and gives you great discounts on workshops. Only Active Members may participate in our juried exhibitions. Membership is a wonderful way to meet other artists and to keep growing artistically!

In order to be a member of the Calgary Chapter, you must belong to our parent organization as well. The headquarters of the national Federation of Canadian Artists is on Granville Island in Vancouver and that is also the location of our national gallery which has many different shows per year. If you are an Active Member you can submit your artwork for consideration in one of the shows, can win awards, titles and prizes, and can list your website on the FCA website. In addition, your national Supporting or Active membership includes a subscription to Art Avenue magazine, a biweekly e-newsletter and discounted rates on workshops, classes and advertising. The membership year runs from January to December but new members who join October to December will have their membership extended to the following year. Currently, at the national level, Supporting Memberships cost $65 while Active Memberships cost $95.

Joining the Calgary Chapter or renewing your membership is much easier if you have already paid for your national membership and have an emailed receipt saved on your computer. If you have not yet paid for your national FCA membership, please click on the appropriate button below to pay your national membership online:

Right click on the icon for the file and click on “save” and save it to the desktop where you can easily find it when you browse for it during the Calgary online renewal process. Alternatively, you can click on the receipt to open it and go to File>Save as or File>Save. If you find that too confusing, just forward the email from Vancouver to me at [email protected]

We hope you will pay for your Calgary Chapter membership online as well. Doing so updates your personal information and membership instantly. However, you may also pay by phone with a credit card or by lettermail with a cheque. Use the form below to contact the membership coordinator if you do not want to renew online.
