About Us

Who We Are

The Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) was founded in 1941 by a group of influential artists including Group of Seven luminary, Lawren Harris. The FCA is a not-for-profit organization that shares and promotes the passion and pleasure of the visual arts through exhibition, education and community. This prestigious organization provides many services that elevate artists and their art for all to appreciate. There are currently fourteen chapters across Canada with over 2800 members.


The Federation's Peace River Chapter, is a regional community of professional and semi-professional artists and art lovers. It's 38 supporting and active members reside in Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Chetwynd, Tumbler Ridge, Beaverlodge, Grande Prairie and surrounding communities.  

The Peace River Chapter of the FCA (PRFCA) organizes two local juried exhibitions annually, chapter meetings and workshops. 

We provide networking opportunities and support for our artists in the BC and Alberta Peace Country outside and in addition to the programming that takes place from the FCA head office in Vancouver, BC
