Art Works celebrates Grand Opening

Local dignitaries gathered on Saturday to celebrate the grand opening of Art Works, the city's newest Art Centre.  

Joining owner Chris Bennett for the official ribbon cutting is Belleville Chamber of Commerce CEO JIll Raycroft, MPP Todd Smith, Councillor Garnet Thompson on behalf of the City of Belleville and MP Neil Ellis.

Chris Bennett, a familiar name in the local art scene is the creator behind many of the amazing murals seen around the city.  Chris has been a self employed muralist, dancer, performing and multi-faceted artist and performing artist in the Belleville area for more than 25 years.

Chris’ dream has always been to provide arts opportunities for youth and adults, helping them grow and discover their passions through inspiration, education and the freedom to express themselves.

Art Works is his dream come true.  He states “Art Works reflects how well I am personally doing as an artist;  to be able to give back and provide a space for all aspiring and established artists to grow from and to be the influence to our community that I did not have growing up in the Quinte area by creating a studio like no other.”

Check out Art Works on Facebook.  Art “truly” Works.  Art Works is located at 257 North Front St. in Belleville.

Congratulations to Chris Bennett for making his dream come true.... helping kids find their passion through art, dance & music.

We wish you every success as you enter your Phase 2 of doing what you love.
