Right at the bottom of Main St.in Unionville There's always something going on directly outside which makes me forget this is really an art gallery. You can't miss it as you stroll main St or on your way to the pond.

The Varley Art Gallery is free admission. It's a small, quaint art space and I enjoyed my hour's visit. The staff were friendly and the exhibitions were interesting.

Whenever we are walking around Unionville mainstream we always drop in for a quick visit to see what's new on the walls. It's small and cute and will only take about 20 minutes to see everything.

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?
