We are a group of artists from diverse backgrounds and all levels of ability, all located in the Fredericton, New Brunswick area and interested in promoting FSA's constitutional goals:
". . . to foster the practice of painting and graphic arts in Fredericton and to cooperate with other organized bodies in support of similar interests."
The Fredericton Society of Artists travelled to St. Andrews, NB on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 for a day of plein air painting--literally, painting outdoors in the open air. FSA chartered a bus and there was no charge to FSA members for transportation. Member Bruce Newman prepared a plein air checklist for those who were not familiar with outdoor painting and he did a demo on the wharf for anyone interested in seeing how he begins a painting outdoors. Everyone painted on their own and we enjoyed a meal, drinks and fellowship afterward. A great day!

Besides, we have fun!
We meet on the fourth Tuesday on each month from September through May at 7:00 PM at Old Government House in Fredericton, NB. Our meetings consist of a short business meeting which is followed by a critique of members' works.
In addition to our monthly meetings, we hold two major exhibitions each year, one in the spring and the other in the fall. We also exhibit as other occasions arise.
You are welcome to get a feel for our group by attending a meeting or two and we hope that you will consider joining us.
Save the Date!
Join us for our 69th annual Fall Exhibition. The Opening Reception will be held at the Provincial Archives Building on the UNB Campus on Thursday, Dec. 7th from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
All are welcome to attend and enjoy light refreshments while viewing more than 100 paintings by our members. Viewing will continue through the weekend.
This is an opportunity to support local artists and perhaps pick up a perfect surprise gift for home or office!
