About
Jessica Vergeer Studios is a studio, gallery and dress shop run by Parry Sound artist and fashion designer Jessica Vergeer. Her downtown Parry Sound location at 18 James Street showcases both her own paintings as well as selected work by other local artists and designers. When she's not busy making her own work, Jessica runs scheduled step-by-step painting classes at her studio. Jessica's dress shop features not only on her own fashion designs - which include hand-made dresses, skirts and tops - but also a selection of clothing, jewelry and accessories from other Canadian designers and fair trade sources. If you're a little more "hands-on" in your approach to art, be sure to ask about the public and private group painting classes that Jessica leads year round.

This is somewhere you shouldn't miss. The art work is different but very pleasing - the prints are good value. For something designed and beautiful try on a dress or wrap. Good prices too.

Jessica was a lovely host, very talented artist and very encouraging to all participants. She provided us with an opportunity to express our selves through art after having paddled alone the shores of Georgian Bay earlier in the day

Recently enjoyed my 3rd painting class with Jessica. Not only is she an amazing artist, she has a warm and supportive personality with a great sense of humour. A 2 hour class flies by and you really are amazed at what you can accomplish with her guidance. Thanks again Jessica, see you in June!

I recently spent part of my morning connecting to my inner artist during a guided painting class with Jessica Vermeer at her studio. Jessica is passionate about what she does and that spills over into the class. She is very positive, encouraging and has a good eye to help guide her students toward their desired outcome. It was a great way to meet new people, some local or some just visiting their cottage. All levels of talent a welcomed and encouraged. It was so cool to see everyone’s interpretation and variations in their “masterpiece”! I will definitely try another class.

Our wonderful boss bought all of us a painting session with Jessica. We were all very excited to try our hand at creating our own little piece of Georgian Bay. Jessica was an excellent teacher, and everyone one of our group of 9 came away with a beautiful work of art! Such a fun night and would recommend as a great team building night with co-workers. thanks Jessica!!

On our girls getaway weekend with White Squall Paddling Centre we joined Jessica in her studio for a painting class. I got to meet Jessica the day before as I was browsing along the street and was pulled into her studio (the music was calling me in) she is truly a lovely person inside and out. Was happy to learn that Jessica and her mother would be joining us on our paddle the next day with White Squall. The painting class was a lot of fun and really felt her kind spirit as she positively commented on all our paintings making them suddenly look much better in our mind's eye. The power of praise! The following day we were able to go and spend time shopping in her studio, beautiful clothes, jewelry and of course fabulous art. I bought a top which I wear all the time, simple and elegant dress it up or dress it down and the material is fabulous especially for travelling. Thanks Jessica, I will be back. Joanne

About a year ago I saw some of Jessica Vergeer’s works online and I was finally able to visit her store. Indeed, the paintings are awesome and I can appreciate them even more because I have canoed & camped on Georgian Bay for years and have personally seen—or rather experienced—the one-of-a-kind scenery depicted in them. She is a very gifted artist!

I bought several postcards of original paintings by Jessica Verger as well as vintage-style posters of Parry Sound, Wreck Island, Killbear Provincial Park and the Lighthouses at Snug Harbour and Red Rock. Since I have visited most of these places by canoe and/or camped there, the pictures brought back plenty of wonderful memories!

Even though I was not able to spend a lot of time in Parry Sound, I truly enjoyed her little store and all the art on display. I am looking forward to coming to this lovely town again and visiting her studio!

We've been following Jessica for a while. She's working into new styles, lots of movement and lovely colours. Her dress designs are also a great addition to the gallery.
