This museum is small but very intimate, offering many art programmes to the community including art camps, drawing classes etc. Today I visited the exhibit of artist, Paul Fournier, a living, breathing Canadian artist we Ontarians should all be very proud of. I love the brilliant burst of colors on canvas and the three-dimensionality of the acrylic. I aspire to... More

Amazing works of art are shown here representing local artisans and caliber Canadian artists alike. Smallish yet with a concentrated artful atmosphere. A good time spent.

Nestled in the beautiful town of Unionville the gallery is the perfect compliment to the community. They offer classes and workshops and inspiration with the works they show. What more could you ask for?

Fredrick Varley gallery at the north end of Main St. Unionville adds to an already impressive walk around unionville. The art is curated well and several examples of Group of Seven art as well as other Canadian and international artists works are changed frequently. Often it is free of charge to visit.

During a day spent on Main Street Unionville spend some time at the Gallery. Currently admission is free courtesy IBM. Shows change so check the Gallery website but there is a permanent display featuring art from the gallery's own collection. Take time for lunch or dinner at many of the great restaurants Unionville is famous for.

Nice building. SMALL gallery. Limited selection of art. Some art classes, camps, and workshops are offered. Admission is free. Nice place to meet up with friends. Looks like a good place for a wedding or small gathering/event.

Great place to visit if you are out in Unionville, usually has lots of events happening and it was nice to visit during the Open Doors Markham with a behind the scene tour.

The guide was kind to let us in for the last 15 minutes and we enjoyed every minute...it was on the small size but worthwhile anyways. I notice they had classes being offered...great space for Unionville and an extra for the main street.

I've been here a bunch of times. It's cute. It's very nice if you go on a warm sunny day and spend some time walking around the main street and the park as well. A good outing.
