Local artist awarded Signature member status

Local artist Frantisek Strouhal was awarded Signature Member Status by the Federation of Canadian Artists’ Board of Governors.

Frantisek Strouhal, a local artist well known for his powerful expressions about the human body and spirit, was awarded Signature Member Status by the Federation of Canadian Artists’ Board of Governors (BOG).

This status stands for a high level of excellence achieved by the individual artists.

Strouhal’s subjects transcend their qualities and evoke an immediate visceral response in the viewer. They speak to us about the mysterious and complex human experience. They provoke inquiry and reflection upon such notions as transformation in the metaphysical realm of existence.

Strouhal mentioned that it is very gratifying to be recognized for the work he loves to do and to have been selected as a Signature member by the FCA whose goal is to contribute to the lasting success of its artists and to advance the knowledge and appreciation of art and culture to all Canadians.

He is earnestly looking forward to fulfill his responsibilities as a new member of the FCA Board of Governors.

The Federation of Canadian artists is holding a show called “SUCCESS” featuring the new Signature members. The show is taking place at 1241 Cartwright Street on Granville Island, Vancouver, from March 15 to 26 with the opening reception happening March 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. All are welcome.
