Federation Of Canadian Artists
Other Names: Fca
The Federation is a national arts service organization committed to uniting artists, art critics and persons interested in art; to promote common aims to assert the creative importance of art in the national and community life of Canada. We presently have over 2,800 members and 12 chapters. We organize about 44 exhibitions per year. 24 are hosted in our year-round gallery on Granville island, 4 online-only calls for submissions, and about 20 exhibitions hosted by our chapters throughout B.C. and Alberta. The Federation was founded in 1941 founded in Kingston, Ontario by professional artists including Group of Seven luminaries Lawren Harris, Arthur Lismer, and A.Y. Jackson. The first National Executive Council was led by Andre Bieler. Other notable founding members included Emily Carr and the Honorable Mark Kearley. Our origins are as an “Artists Run Center” but we have grown to become more than this. We have retained our Artist Run Center roots in that we have not adopted curation practices for our gallery. We have retained peer-review jurying for all our shows. Our Signature members with decades of “hands-on” experience and understanding jury the works that appear in our shows. Donations will go to support our education and networking programs that help artists develop their artistic and business skills or can be put toward the expenses associated with the operation of our gallery so artists have an opportunity to sell their work.
