CHAPTER History

In February of 2019, after numerous conversations and emails with the FCA in Vancouver, a group of local artists started discussing the possibility of forming an FCA chapter in Edmonton.

The enthusiasm was huge; the number of active artists eligible to form a chapter was not. It was obvious that more active status artists needed to be recruited to the FCA from the Edmonton area.

With the combined efforts of Barbra Regamey McDonald, Joyce Boyer, Cindy Revell AFCA, Doris Charest AFCA and Miles Constable, a jurying session was held on November 28, 2019.
