Art and Beyond in Bow
The Pacific Northwest is known for artisans and artists, and Bow is no different. Here you can find Smith and Vallee Woodworks. Known for gorgeous cabinetry, Smith and Vallee are experts in salvaged and reclaimed woods – used to create unique rustic-chic furniture designs. Other local art attractions include the newly-opened “i.e. gallery” showcasing the work of artists from all over the Pacific Northwest as well as local, less well-known, artists. Exhibits scale the artistic gamut from abstract to realism, so there is something for every variety of art-lover.
Wintertime in Bow offers its own special treats; the community is home to the Bow Hill Railroad, a narrow-gauge railway on which the owner, a local landowner, hosts his Annual Santa Train. Part fun, part fundraiser, area residents are invited to take a ride around his property on the railway; passengers need only donate to the local food bank or humane society in exchange for the ride.
Bow affords its residents the benefits of a quiet community situated in a prime location ready to tackle the fun and adventures of the Pacific Northwest. Whether on pavement, dirt or air, Bow delivers with exciting activities for everyone.
