Foothills Art Club holds a fall and a spring Art Show and Sale, with all members being eligible to take part. We have monthly scheduled ‘open-studios’ or ‘paintouts’ at the Beaupre Hall, west of Cochrane, as well as outside ‘plein-air’ painting sessions during the summer. We have guest presentations and demonstrations by members throughout the year, in addition to weekend workshops led by professional instructors. At least once a month we have a ‘theme night’ when member(s) will share a special technique or resource and also a ‘critique corner’ night for members to bring their work for suggestions or feedback.

Call to Artists: Cochrane Dollar Project
The Cochrane Dollar project is growing closer to launch on May 19, 2017 and the design of the bills is now underway.
Because of Canada’s 150th birthday this year, we’ve decided that it would be great to print one special collectable bill to commemorate this occasion. For this collectable bill, we would be thrilled to have a work of local art to feature on the back. We’re inviting local artists to submit a work that they would like to be considered for this.
The conditions are:
– A work by a local artist.
– The painting would preferably be of something recognisable as part of current or historical Cochrane, however, we are open to other scenes from the area as well.|
– The artist will not receive financial compensation for the use of their work on the Cochrane Dollar commemorative bill.
– The artist will retain ownership of the work. We will only require a good photograph or scan of the painting.
The dimensions of the Cochrane Dollar will be the same as Canadian bills. It is possible to use a portion of the art work in order to have it fit within the dimensions available.
Please send a photo of the work you would like to be considered, by Thursday March 16th, to firstname.lastname@example.org
