WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the lovely march break camp you put on last week.  You enriched our children’s lives by introducing them to textures, new materials and art processes.  Every day my children came home inspired, excited for art and design and surprisingly zen- lol.  Well done!  I can’t wait to see the finished product. 

    Sonya
  • The arts are so important to all ages, Baxter Arts Centre provides programs and events in all aspects of the arts; visual, musical, spoken, and performed and encompasses all ages from children upwards.  It is a vital part of our community.

  • The Baxter Centre renovation has been remarkable, the volunteers have not only saved a historic building but have managed to create a space that can help foster the arts in Prince Edward County. These types of volunteer initiatives are what makes the County such a wonderful place to live and work.

    Adam Busscher
    Owner, Picton Home Hardware
  • Thank you for all the fantastic work you have done to save this building! It has been years of pure volunteer effort that has made the Baxter Building a community asset for Bloomfield once again. Thank you, thank you!

    Diana
  • We see the potential for an enhanced quality of life not only in our community but the County as a whole. This we can accomplish by significantly broadening the scope and extending the reach of arts programming and education in Prince Edward County.

    Arlene & Caroline
  • The vision of transforming the Don Baxter Memorial Building into a place for the arts is an excellent example of creative and committed citizens working to enhance community and quality of place.

    Judy
  • I can remember when I spent a lot of time doodling, thinking about drawing and creating things I imagined. I thought about being able to draw so that I could get stuff out of my brain and onto paper, to make it come alive. And maybe, one day make a living from my art. That was when I was yet a teen. Today, I realize I could have done just that with a little help.

    Larry
  • Art is not just a frill or a luxury. It is the way that we as humans define ourselves, and it is through art that cultures are remembered and celebrated.
