Exclusively for FCA members, this new online exhibition and competition opportunity challenges artists to create an engaging image on a 4″ x 6″ support.
Artists stand the chance to win cash prizes in addition to having their artwork featured on the official FCA postcards, available for sale from the Federation Gallery on Granville Island.
The idea for the contest came about as Helen Duckworth, the FCA Gallery Coordinator grappled for ideas for a third online exhibition and competition for the FCA:
“Online exhibitions are becoming an important service for our membership” she says. “Many of our members who don’t live in Vancouver feel that the cost of delivering artwork is preventing them from participating,” she empathises “…so it’s important for the FCA to utilise new technologies to improve upon our services to these members”.
Duckworth came across an old FCA postcard design in storage by Edward J.Loenen, a past member. “I found these beautiful postcards hidden in a box, I put them out and they really hit a chord with visitors and tourists” she says.
The subject matter isn’t restricted to views of the FCA gallery either, in fact the call is open to all subject matter.
