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.

Supporting Membership is for anyone interested in the arts, and membership allows you to participate in our monthly chapter meetings and scheduled events. Membership also allows you to participate in FCA workshops and lectures at a discounted fee.  Purchase a FCA Calgary Supporting Membership for $25/year.

Active Membership allows artists with consistent and high quality artworks to participate in our juried exhibitions; be eligible for titles, awards and prizes; submit shrink-wrapped art for display at the FCA gallery in Vancouver; and have your website listed on the FCA ‘Member Artists’ site. To become an Active Member, you must already be a Supporting Member, and you must submit a portfolio of ten (10) original artworks for approval by a Signature Member of the FCA. Purchase a FCA Calgary Active Membership  for $50/year. Learn more about applying for Active Membership with the FCA (national). Add your name to our Artists Gallery.

The Federation of Canadian Artists also awards Associate Signature (AFCA) status to Active Members who have demonstrated a consistent level of excellence in their art practice – as demonstrated by their participation in seven (7) or more of our juried exhibitions. Signature members are eligible to perform jury duty for the FCA. Associate Signature members may use the designation AFCA. Senior Signature (SFCA) status is our highest level of achievement for members with outstanding quality, and allows members to use the designation SFCA and become members of the FCA Board of Governors.
