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?

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.
