FCA Anniversary Show Opening

The venue

On Friday afternoon, September 16th, Federation of Canadian Artists Calgary Chapter President, Kathy Hildebrandt, and her "hanging crew" received 170 paintings and seamlessly had all of them installed in The Simmons building ready for the 6:30PM opening reception that evening.

A wonderful, spacious setting
Rosemary Bennett, Linda Wilder, Kirsten Jensen

Three founding members were on hand to celebrate and to present awards ...

Jeanette McClelland, June Mongomery and Irene Wahl

Yours truly with Canmore artist, Dana Roman, and my painting

With Dana and her mixed media on silk pieces (not bottom right)

And what's a celebration without cake?

An exquisite 32-page colour catalogue was published which included all the paintings in the exhibition.  I regret that I didn't get a photo of Kathy, but I tip my hat to her and everyone who contributed to hosting such a monumental, impressive, commemorative show.  What a shame it was only up for two days!
