Central Okanagan FCA

Call for Submission

OASIS 2020 Art Show


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.

Open to all Active and Signature members of the South Okanagan Similkameen Chapter, Central Okanagan Chapter, North Okanagan Chapter and Thompson Nicola Shuswap Chapter of the FCA.

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.

Artwork can be purchased directly from the on-line gallery. If your work sells from the on-line gallery, you should be prepared to deliver it within the Central Okanagan or Thompson/Nicola/ Shushwap area. If outside your region, the purchaser will pay the shipping fees.

NOTE: There is a slight chance that the Peachland Art Gallery will be reopened by June, in which case show participants with art for sale may be given the option to hang in the gallery.

Show Location: On-line gallery, FCA-COC website. (possibly Peachland Art Gallery, 5684 Beach Avenue, Peachland, BC.)

Entry Deadline: Friday, May 29th, 2020

Show Dates: June 27 to July 31

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

Awards to be juried on-line by a panel of 3 FCA jurors. Award Certificates and cheques will be mailed.
