This Summer summer at the Varley! Come to Markham and paint outdoors.

Are you an artist living in Markham or York Region?
Would you like to have a chance to exhibit your work at the historic McKay Art Centre on Main Street Unionville?

Just as F.H. Varley did, local artists, are invited to set up their easels on Main St. Unionville and in Toogood Pond Park to paint or draw in the open air. Everyone is welcome to join us painting outdoors.

The Varley Art Gallery of Markham is excited to announce its first annual En Plein Air Competition! In celebration of F.H. Varley and his connection with Unionville, local artists will set up their easels on Main Street Unionville and in Toogood Pond Park to paint or draw in the open air the weekend of August 10 – 11, 2019. The works produced will be juried by a committee and the winners’ works will be shown in the En Plein Air exhibition at the historic McKay Art Centre on Main Street Unionville. The exhibition will take place in September, to coincide with Doors Open Markham.
