Spend time in Belleville’s thriving Art Scene – Downtown Belleville is a hotbed of local artists and galleries. Pottery, paintings, sculptures, glasswork, handcrafted jewellery, murals and so much more. Local artwork can be seen not only in the galleries but also in a number of the downtown restaurants and storefronts, such as; Sans Souci, Gourmet Diem Cafe, Dinkel’s Restaurant, Funk & Gruven and many others!
The Belleville Art Association (BAA) is the first gallery experience for a number of its members and visitors will find a wide array of art, with artists of international representation next to first-timers.
The Quinte Arts Council (QAC) is both a gallery and an Arts Council. Visitors walk into this space and comment on all the creative energy here, both from the art on the walls and the work being done behind-the-scenes.

As a co-operative, the shows in Gallery 121 are as varied as the artists themselves. Their vision is to educate the public on all the different forms of art – fibre, jewellery, sculpture, installation. The gallery space is large enough to present bigger pieces.
As a public gallery, the Parrott Gallery has a mandate to serve the members of the community. “By offering an arts experience to the community, we also bring community to the artists,” says curator Susan Holland.
