The Gallery District

Interspersed along Front, Bridge and Pinnacle streets, you’ll find ‘the Gallery District’ – a collection of beautiful and accessible galleries within easy walking distance in the Downtown District.

Embracing Creative Energy

Promoting the talent of local artists, one can feel the soul of a community through its Gallery District.

Words used to describe ours: vibrant, eclectic, exciting, inviting and accessible.

For decades, the galleries have offered varied perspectives which all tell wonderful and complex stories of our region, artists and community.

Downtown art walks, outdoor festivals and cultural practices are just a few examples of the many inspiring experiences the art community has to offer.

Galleries are spaces that educate the public about everything from fibre and jewelry, to sculpture and paintings.

Explore our art scene by visiting the Belleville Art Association (BAA), Quinte Arts Council (QAC), Gallery 121 and the John M. Parrott Art Gallery located on the third floor of the Belleville Public Library.

The four galleries are adjacent to each other. Each is unique, has its own history and its own vibe.

You immediately sense the creative energy in each space, both from the art on the walls and the work being done behind-the-scenes.
