In June of 2018 , twelve local artists set out to paint Bathurst City Benches.  Sponsors from local business and people who wanted to dedicate a bench in memory of their loved ones helped fund the artists and Bay Breeze Art Gallery.  This is the second year that we have undertaken this project with much success.  The benches were much enjoyed by the public and has helped to add creative and beautiful functional works of art in the downtown area.
