In order to be eligible to apply for Active Membership, you have to be a Supporting Member first. Applicants for Active Status have to undergo a jury process where they submit either their professional artists' website or a body of work for jurying. If successful, new Active Members can start participating in FCA shows. Active Members are eligible:

  ·         to submit for juried shows and exhibitions with the FCA,

 ·         for prizes, titles and awards,

 ·         of having their website link displayed at Artist Site

3) & 4) Signature Status: (Link to Signature Status Information)

 Once you have established yourself as a committed artist with consistent superior ability with the FCA, you can apply for your Signature status which includes the Associate Membership (AFCA) and then finally Senior Membership (SFCA). Jurying for both levels of Signature Membership is done by our Board of Governors who meet once per year. The next BOG meeting will take place in March 2016. The Signature Status Application Package 2016 will be available for download later this year.
