FCA-COC Monthly Meetings

Our next meeting will be on June 7th, 2021 at 7:00 PM. 

A link will be sent to members prior to the meeting.  If you are a non-member and would like to attend the meeting, please contact Kit Bell at kitbell@shaw.ca for a link. 

After a brief business meeting we will be having a presentation on Preparing to Enter a Show.

For this month we have invited three of our experienced signature members to share information about entering shows, getting artwork ready for presentation and shipping to shows.

Kit Bell will be walking you through the online entry process: the Call for Entries; what information needs to be provided; and the jurying process.

Diana Palmer will be reviewing the rules on presenting your artwork correctly: finishing edges; framing if desired; and correctly wiring your work.

Ann Willsie will be going over the shipping process if your work is going out of town: packaging your work safely; and arranging shipping.

For those members who are thinking about entering shows, this presentation will cover all the information you need to know.  For more experienced members, you may find tips that will help you decide what to enter and which show to enter it in. 

For those unable to make the meeting, the presentation will be recorded and made available on the chapter's Youtube channel.
