About Us

Since 1967, the Quinte Arts Council has dedicated itself to serving its members – artists, member groups, community friends, businesses, and students – while offering quality entertainment, arts experiences, and arts education for people of all ages in our community.

Our revenues come from government at the municipal and provincial level, sponsorships, foundations, memberships and donations. QAC is governed by a volunteer board of directors and relies heavily on volunteers to assist staff with administration as well as programs and special events.

The Quinte Arts Council is a registered charitable umbrella organization (#107869448RR0001) dedicated to promoting artists and arts organizations in all disciplines and to further appreciation of arts and culture in the Quinte region. The geographic region we serve is from the southern-most tip of Prince Edward County, north to Bancroft and east and west from Napanee to Brighton.

Our office, which includes the Quinte Arts Council Gallery and Gift Shop, is located at 36 Bridge Street East in downtown Belleville. Office and gallery hours are open year round (with the exception of statutory holidays) Tuesday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with openings on Saturdays via appointment. The QAC Gallery and Gift Shop presents the work of local artists including paintings, photography, pottery, sculpture, gift cards, CD’s, books, jewellery, wood turnings, carvings, glasswork and a host of items for home or gifts.
