Federation Gallery

2018 Award Winners


We believe there is no substitute for evaluating artwork in person, therefore the FCA ensures quality by completing the awards jury in our physical gallery space on Granville Island.


You can learn more about our artists and jurors by searching their names in our database here for AFCAs and here for SFCAs. Thank you to the jurors who extend their professional expertise and offer their time fostering arts and culture development in Canada.


If you are an AFCA or SFCA who would like to share your knowledge and professional guidance by jurying, please email fcagallery@artists.ca
