Bowen Island is an island of artists. We have shows, arts events, paint nights, theatre productions for both adults and children, music events, and more. In the visual arts, we have enough galleries to fill your day or weekend visit. Some are small, in private homes, and others have regular hours for the public. Look below for a list of galleries and arts vendors on Bowen Island (see websites for hours).
If you're interested in taking art classes, head to Bowen Community Recreation's website to see their offerings, as well as the listing in the Bowen Island Arts Council's weekly newsletter, viewable at biac.ca (see link below menu bar); you can also find theatre, music, and performance arts listings there, and also on our broad Events page.
