We are a friendly, supportive and resourceful group, and we are always pleased to welcome new members.
In order for a member to exhibit their original art works in any of the association art shows, they must be in good standing and have attended a minimum of eight meetings in the preceding year (including four business meetings). Members are not required to display their art in a show, however all members are expected to participate in the event.
Members are also expected to volunteer in various roles to assist in the administration of the association.
The membership fee is $50 (annually), with an additional one-time charge of $10 for your name badge upon joining.
Please feel free to contact John Hansen at 604-941-2304 if you have questions about membership, or come to one of our meetings to see what we are up to.
The Art Focus Artists' Association meets ten months of the year, from September through to June. Much of our membership comes from the tri-city area, but there are no geographic boundaries. Our membership has a wide range of experience and interests that are shared, encouraged, and supported.
We meet three times a month at The Outlet in the Leigh Square Community Arts Village at 2253 Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam, BC at 7 PM. Access to the Outlet (old Port Coquitlam Post Office) is also available from McAllister Street right behind Port Coquitlam City Hall.
1st Wednesday is artists' Workshop where we work together on projects or on our individual pieces.
2nd Wednesday is the business meeting where we plan shows and community participation, have coffee, and socialize.
4th Wednesday is demo night where professional artists demonstrate their skills for our group members as well as the public, free of charge.
The public is invited to the demos and there is a no charge to attend. We have an overhead mirror which makes it easy to see the artist work.

Art Focus is a group of Tri-City area artists working in a variety of media, including pastel, watercolour, acrylic, oil, and mixed media. This group was formed in November, 1993.
The group meets three times a month to share ideas, to support and learn from each other, and from other artists in the community.
Here is what we do:
Every year we hold two major Art Events ‐ our May Day Art Show & Sale in the Spring and our Annual Exhibition & Sale in the Fall.
We participate in many Community Events‐ including Art in the Park, Mothers' Day in Lions Park, Children's May Day Banner Project, and Castle Park Canada Day Celebrations.
We actively encourage our members to display their work to the public on a regular basis. We offer them the opportunity to display within a Group Show context or as a Two-Person Show in Port Coquitlam City Hall and Martha's Bakery and Restaurant.
We have demos by established artists who demonstrate their techniques in various media to our members. The public is also welcome to attend.
Some of our members teach in their studios.
