CALLING ALL ARTISTS & ARTISANSThe Bowen Island Arts Council invites local artists and artisans to participate in the 2019 Studio Tours on Bowen Island during National Culture Days. In 2018, we launched Studio Tours, with 24 artists and galleries participating. Following the weekend, which coincided with national Culture Days and was held on the final two days of September, we checked in with artists and they overwhelming agreed that the initiative was a success. Last year, the stops included visual artists, sculptors, ceramicists, print makers, book makers, illustrators, textile artists and jewellers. Who will be on the Studio Tour in 2019?

Volunteer With Us
As we settle in to our new home at the Cove Commons, we are seeking new volunteers to jump into our creative environment and join the fun. We are looking to add to our roster of Gallery Hosts, beginning this fall.
The role of Gallery Host at the Gallery @ the Cove Commons includes: greeting visitors and helping to promote our exhibits; administering art sales; attending special events and celebrations.
We are now recruiting new volunteers who are able to commit to a three or six hours shift, on a regular day at least once a month.

Join us at the Hearth!
The arts council will remain true to its roots, while reaching out to the larger Bowen community by acknowledging: “We are all artists here.” Though the legal name will remain Bowen Island Arts Council, as the charity enters its 40th decade it will operate with a renewed sense of purpose and direction under a new name: “The Hearth – Arts on Bowen.” As it’s brand essence states: “The possibilities are endless.”
