2023 Chapter Shows

The Central Okanagan Chapter has two shows happening this year so get painting! 

The Chapter Show (which will be a Qualifying Show of the FCA open only to members of the chapter) will run from June 1st to July 30th at the Grizzli Winery. The theme this year is Everything Under the Sun which is broad enough to include many types of work. Chapter members can enter by going to the Call for Entries link at the left.  Members must be logged in to submit.

The OASIS 2023 Regional Show (which will also be a Qualifying Show but will be open to members of the Central Okanagan, South Okanagan, North Okanagan and the Thompson Nicola Shuswap Chapters) will run from July 1st to July 31st at the Peachland Art Gallery.

The OASIS 2022 show was a great success with a total of 9 paintings sold from the Peachland Art Gallery and through the Online Gallery.

FCA-COC Monthly Meetings

Our next meeting will be on May 1st, 2023 at 6:30 PM.   It will be a hybrid meeting with both Zoom and an in-person option at:

German Canadian Harmony Club
1696 Cary Rd, Kelowna, BC V1X 2B9

See Map

Note the new time - 6:30 PM

After the business meeting we will be offering an in person demo by Daniel Dearborn. Daniel paints scenes that resonate with people on an emotional level. He draws on memory in some cases or visits, then paints scenes that evoke a mood, a feeling which causes people to connect with his paintings.

This demo will be a representation of how Daniel in-visions his paintings and prepares his canvas and finishes his complete work for his galleries. He will demonstrate all the steps that he takes as well as produce a painting during the demo.

For those unable to make the meetings, the presentations are available on the chapter's Youtube channel.
