The Frederick County Art Association (FCAA) is a not-for-profit organization committed to encouraging artistic growth and exposure within its membership and to promoting community interest and participation in the visual arts. FCAA members enjoy guest speakers and opportunities for group exhibitions and social events. To join us, download an application.


The FCAA will present two TED Talk videos featuring engaging, and sometimes humorous, artists discussing their work. The event will take place on Monday, February 13 at the Delaplaine after a short members meeting. The videos will be closed-captioned and free refreshments will be provided. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. We meet at 7:00 p.m. at The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center in Frederick, Maryland.

The FCAA will hold its first pop-up store from March 2-4 at Le Parc Bistro in Frederick. Hours are 4-9 p.m.
