South Okanagan-Similkameen Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists

FCA-SOS Membership


The South Okanagan Similkameen Chapter was founded in 2000 with a membership of 23.    Members are from Princeton to Summerland.  Our membership today is 86 strong.


 Our chapter is a not-for-profit organization and is sustained by the enthusiasm and dedication of its volunteers.  We encourage all new members to become actively involved in the activities of the chapter.

 Artistic Growth

 One of the main goals of our chapter is to facilitate artistic growth to all of its members.  We offer support and education on a number of different levels, as well as an opportunity to display our paintings in our local area.


 We hold 9 monthly meetings a year.  The business part of the meeting is kept fairly brief and we are focusing on the Program segment of the meeting.  The programs include demonstrations, Art Critiques or discussion on a set topic.  One meeting a year is an en plein air painting day.

Chapter Shows

We try to have at least one Chapter Juried show a year. We also have about four or five non-juried shows a year.


 We strive to offer at least two workshops each year using FCA nationally respected artists to do a multi day course.

Mentor Porgram

Our Chapter has a mentor program that helps emerging artists reach their protential.
