Art Gallery


The Library recognizes that the arts are a distinguishing characteristic of our community's identity. To support our community's creative talents, we offer spaces that showcase local artists in a setting that invites connection and reflection. 

Our Art Gallery is a canvas for established and emerging artists who work in an exciting range of styles and media.

Come experience this month's exhibit and discover a new artist, perspective and source of pleasure. Works are on display both on the Main Floor and Lower Level.

In addition to our monthly exhibitions, over the years the Library has acquired a collection of fine art. Selected pieces are on display in the Library.

Permanent Collection

bowen: island lifeBowen Island Life

March 1 - April 30

In partnership with the Bowen Island Arts Council, four local artists pay homage ot the daily rhythm and movement of Bowen Island life.

Every day, Bowen residents and visitors travel by BC Ferries to and from the mainland. This journey is represented in the works of Patricia Adams and Eleanor Rosenberg, whose paintings focus on the contemplative nature of the crossing and the picturesque views from the upper passenger decks.

The watercolours of Ann Beatty celebrate smaller modes of island transport, including the sailboats and kayaks moored at Snug Cove.

Jilly Watson moves the viewer away from the water, depicting with energetic colours the local businesses and people that make Bowen Island a unique place to live and create.
