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.
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:
- Be a member of our parent FCA organization,
- Be a Supporting Member of FCA Calgary, and
- Submit a portfolio of ten (10) original artworks for approval by a Signature Member of the FCA. Learn more about applying for Active Membership with the FCA (national).
You can upgrade your Supporting membership to Active at any time in the year.
