Art Galleries of Bowen Island

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.
