Peace River Chapter of the FCA presents their fall juried art show to be held Nov 29 to Dec 19, 2020 at the Beaverlodge Art Gallery. With the challenging times we have all experienced, the creation of art is uplifting for both the artist and the eye of the beholder. We have been separated but standing together in lifting one another's spirit'.

Our Autumn/Winter show, “A World of Contrast,” opened with a warm audience at the Centre for Creative Arts in Grande Prairie, Alberta, on Nov. 1st 2019. As artists we had the opportunity to inject beauty, intrigue, moods and messages as a sharp contrast to the concerns of our time, and that we did. Our first place winner was Suzanne Sandboe, second place was Elizabeth Hutchinson and third place was Tannis Trydal. Honorable mentions were Caily Oldershaw, Mary Parslow AFCA, Sandy Troudt AFCA.
Our juried show 'Fleeting Moments' scheduled for May at the Fort St John Art gallery was held online due to Covid-19 and is currently being shown at the Ft. St. John Art Gallery now until October 2nd, 2020.
We were pleased to host Alberta landscape artist Susan Woolgar who led us in a workshop “Abstracting the Landscape.” A full compliment of PRFCA members enjoyed the learning experience, the camaraderie, and the beautiful art studio on August 24th and 25th at Linda Haugen’s property near the Peace River, near Charlie Lake, BC (similar to a garden from Tuscany with rock walls, rock wall buildings, and garden containers filled with flowers everywhere- lots of beautiful things to paint.)
Two of our printmakers; Donna Bozarth and Mary Parslow had their work accepted into an international print show- “Adogi” that showed in Spain, England and France. We have two successful on- line art teachers, Angela Fehr, watercolour and Tannis Trydal drawing, who have a large following in their on-line lessons.
Our Facebook page, organized by Tannis Trydal showcases one of our artists each month so that we can get to know each other and discover interesting things about our members in this vast Peace River area of BC.
