ARTS / CRAFTS

BOWEN ISLAND ARTS PACIFIC GALLERY
AL21, 587A Artisan Square
604-947-0498
 Arts Pacific Gallery is a “must-visit” stop in any excursion to Bowen Island. The arts collaborative was formed in 2003 by a small group of artists and craftspeople who, desiring on-going exposure for their works, selected the retail site at Artisan Square. Now, its newly refurbished space showcases the carefully crafted works of its thirteen members, who maintain and staff the store. Hand knits, fibre arts, jewellery, limited edition photography, art cards, pottery, ceramics and paintings in various media are all on display.
    Since its inception, Arts Pacific has been an integral part of the artistic community on Bowen Island, and through the dedicated efforts of its diverse membership, it is an established venue for the display and sale of the fine crafts and art works available.
