Scenes from Western Canada is one of the most anticipated and participated-in exhibitions the Federation of Canadian Artists hosts. Don’t miss your opportunity to submit to it by the August 31st deadline.
In previous years this exhibition has become a visual ode to the landscape of Canada. Breathless valleys, sunny beaches, shady forests, dewy rainforests, intense desert, luscious waterfalls, dominating mountains, extensive vistas, it is without a doubt that we are spoilt for choice from the natural landscape in Western Canada.
This year, we’re encouraging artists to embrace nature’s bounty and beyond as they explore scenes from Western Canada in these, and more personal ways. For example, a scene from Western Canada could also explore the backdrop of home, something that happened downtown, uptown, out in the countryside, in the hubbub of the city, the quiet of your garden, the chaos of your workplace.
We invite Active and Signature FCA members to share their scenes in this exhibition.
For artists aged 39 and under who have not yet featured in an FCA exhibition, there is an open call opportunity for the chance to win the $1,000 Painter’s Keys Prize, as donated by the Robert Genn estate on behalf of the late Robert Genn. Robert Genn was a talented professional artist, dedicated educator and influential mentor as a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
Learn about the full eligibility requirements and submit for the prize here, and be sure to share this opportunity in your network.
