2018 Concept

About the 2018 Concept Exhibition:

Going beyond the illusion of painting, Concept focuses on the message, notions and stories conveyed through an artists’ media. If a picture can say a thousand words, challenge yourself to really say something meaningful. 


The FCA has seen a serge of artworks in our recent exhibitions conveying deep meaning. You may have a story to tell, a message of conviction, or a driving passion that speaks to the core of humanity.

 Art making cannot exist in a bubble, you paint for a reason.
