The Federation represents about 3,000 artists from across Canada and our gallery features the artwork of 60 Canadian artists at a time. With a new exhibition every two weeks, there's always something new to find whether you come to view the art or would like to take something home.

The Federation Gallery is located on Granville Island, in the heart of Vancouver's art and culture community. Our gallery features 24 juried exhibitions of works by emerging and establish artists including three annual international exhibitions; Painting on the Edge, the Annual International Representation Exhibition, and the Annual International Mail-in Art Exhibition.

The FCA also hosts special collaborative exhibitions with other Canadian art societies and an extensive education program that is open to all artists.

Membership in the FCA is open to all who appreciate art.
