FCA-COC Meeting

To protect your health and safety and to be in accordance with government regulations, our April 6th Meeting with Ann Willsie will be postponed until further notice. With the rapid escalation of the situation we are remaining positive but anticipate the May and June meetings could be impacted to some degree as well. 

OASIS 2020 Art Show Call for Entries

NOTE: ALL REVENUE raised from ENTRY FEES will go to AWARDS!

About the Show: A Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) Open Regional Chapter Show organized by the Central Okanagan Chapter (FCA-COC). This is a juried, qualifying Chapter show with a full suite of awards.

Attention: Due to COVID 19 and the consequent closure of Peachland Art Gallery (PAG), this year’s art show will be an on-line show. All the same show rules will apply as with a regular physical FCA exhibition with the exceptions that entries do not have to be for sale and there is no size restriction.

All accepted, qualifying entries will earn a signature status point. Some non-qualifying (chapter’s choice) paintings may be accepted to fill the online gallery if numbers are down. 

A minimum of $1,200.00 in prizes will be awarded, possibly more, depending on the number of entries.

All accepted, qualifying entries are eligible for awards.

Entry Deadline: Friday, May 29th, 2020

Show Dates: June 21 to July 26 

Participants: Open to all Active and Signature members of the SOC, COC, NOC and TNSC chapters of the FCA.

Fresh Off the Easel

While the current pandemic has limited our activities outside our homes, it is providing artists with extra time to work on our art! The FCA-COC wants to see what you have been doing, so we have created the Fresh Off the Easel biweekly event.

Every two weeks, there will be a Call for Entries. After the entry deadline, the work submitted will be displayed in an online Gallery on the Website.  A random image from the Gallery will grace the home page.  Each time the home page is displayed, a different image will be shown.  Meanwhile, another Call for Entries will be open for you to enter your next creation! 

To make it even more interesting, a draw for a $25 gift card will be made from the names of the artists who entered that event.  There will be one prize for each two-week event!
