This exhibition is for all Thompson Nicola Shuswap Chapter of the FCA (TNSC) members in a non-juried show/sale. It is intended to be fun, educational, and interactive!

The only catch his that ALL works MUST be “UNTITLED”.

Artists often have difficultly coming up with creative or distinctive titles for their work. In this show, visitors will be provided “sticky notes” to write what they think a piece should be called and then stick it next to the piece they came up with a title for. Visitors may do as few or as many titles suggestions as they want for any or all of the works shown. The titles will allow visitors and artists to what speaks about a piece to others.

The KAC will have 30% and the TNSC will have 10% commission on sales.

Subject matter is open to member artists choice.

Both pieces for sale and not for sale will be eligible to participate.

It is expected that this show will have between 25 and 40 works hanging depending on size. Please consider size when submitting, the preferred maximum dimensions are 24” wide by 36” high. Larger pieces may be condsidered, subject to space, but there is no guarantee of acceptance for larger pieces.

Any FCA approved medium.

o   Work that has previously been shown in an FCA show.

o   Work that was created in a workshop, except where the instructor provided the reference and multiple students painted the same painting.
