A Bit About Verity Blue Studio

We completed construction of Verity Blue Studio in 2018

Verity Blue Studio & Gallery is located outside the picturesque village of Coldwater, in Simcoe County Ontario. Our property is situated an hour north of the Greater Toronto Area. We feel privileged to reside in Lake Country; on the Trent Severn Waterway, between Georgian Bay and Muskoka Lakes. This beautiful new studio and gallery was built in 2018 as an addition to the main residence. The project was designed by Kathryn (kmk design) and built by her partner, Warren Bennet (Warren Bennet & Sons Contracting Inc.) with Scheffel Construction. This space serves as Kathryn’s studio, as well as her gallery. See our photo gallery in this link.

Attend Our Events or Host Your Own

Our services include individual and group instruction, workshops, retreats and exhibit space. See more details on what services we are offering here. We will also host an evening artist drop in, life drawing gatherings and plein air days. Child minding will be available on site for those who need. The studio will also be available to other artists and instructors who would like to host their own events on our premises. Costs for rental of facilities will be reasonable. Connect with us if you wish to host an event.

We have a limited selection of hand crafted items for sale in our studio, and in our newly launched Verity Blue Studio & Gallery Shop here. Kathryn has been busy creating fabulous face coverings this past year, which are available in our online shop, as well as in the studio.

This land is John Collins Purchase (1785) and Williams Treaty (1923) territory. We commit to learn everything we can about this area and the process of colonialization here.  Secondly, we vow to respect this place as well as those who came before us. Thirdly, we promise to work on lessening our footprint, and sharing our resources whenever we are able. We also understand that our land acknowledgement does not begin or end here.
