Rouge: Varley Gala

Through your generous support, the Rouge: Varley Gala raised over $100,000.

The proceeds raised from the second annual Rouge: Varley Gala benefit the Varley-McKay Art Foundation of Markham, allowing us to support the mandate of the Varley Art Gallery of Markham in offering award-winning exhibitions and various educational programs. While it serves as a fundraiser, this event also promotes the love of art and culture in our community.

On view at the Varley Art Gallery until September 3, 2018 is Refuge and Inscapes assisted with free admission courtesy of IBM. We hope you will visit the Varley Art Gallery to see how your contributions to the Varley-McKay Art Foundation of Markham makes a difference in your community.
