Present | Perfect | Continuous
January 21, 2017 – January 2018
Location: Varley Art Gallery
216 Main Street Unionville
celebrate our 20th anniversary, a year-long rotation of
our most popular works by F.H. Varley will be on view in
the Collections Gallery. Both the exhibition and
accompanying publication will highlight 20 years of
acquisitions, acknowledge the role of the Varley-McKay
Art Foundation in the development of the collection, and
many donors who have contributed to its growth.
Grammatically, the Present Perfect Continuous is used
with actions that began in the past but that are still
continuing in the present. Symbolically, it implies the
passing of time, something that is not fixed but always
evolving. In this view, selected interventions by
contemporary artists will bring new insights to the
study of F.H. Varley’s work from our collection.
