Rouge: Varley Gala
Thu, 12 Oct 2017, 6:00 PM – Fri, 13 Oct 2017, 12:00 AM EDT
The elegant sophistication of Crystal Fountain Event Venue sets the stage for our interactive evening, featuring a cocktail reception, 3 course meal, lively entertainment, Live and Silent auctions, raffles and more! The theme of the 2017 gala is influenced by a number important events occurring that year: The 20th Anniversary of the Varley Art Gallery, Canada 150 and the 100th anniversary of Tom Thomson’s death.
Rouge. One of our national colours, in one of our official national languages celebrated in a milestone year for Canada. An event held in autumn, the time of year when the leaves change to various shades of red and orange. Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven were dedicated to capturing the majestic Canadian landscape and the brilliant colours of autumn for all to enjoy. Frederick Horsman Varley was one of the founding members of the Group of Seven and lived on Main Street in Unionville from 1957-1969. The Varley Art Gallery is located at the corner of Main Street Unionville and Carlton Road, overlooking Toogood Pond and Toogood Pond feeds into the Rouge River.
