The Venue

The Bower is an outdoors experience. Feel the calm and well being inspired by the natural setting of the Appalachian Mountains adorned with curated sculptural works and native gardens. Whether taking a stroll alone, with a companion, or as part of an event, The Bower will soothe, inspire, and encourage the imagination to wander.

Future Plans

We are currently in a major developmental stage. The landscape structure is in place and being enhanced through conscious design of native gardens. Our first wave of sculpture commissions accompanied by new architectural features and landscape revisions will take place between 2019 and 2020. We have gone through an extensive  “Call to Art” and are engaged with ten sculptural artists, either through commission or  purchase.  These Phase 1 works will be installed by the end of summer of 2020.

New architectural features will benefit the artists and visitors. Minimalist by design, these facilities will provide gathering and shelter space plus artists’ workshop and support resources.

Visiting The Bower

The Bower benefits a diverse community of interests. Artists, art patrons, educators and students, gardeners and garden lovers, naturalists and bird watchers can all partake. The Bower is a wonderful field trip destination and unique setting for special events.

Group Opportunities for the future

Are you a non-profit? We want to work with our community to support those who give back. We will be offering The Bower as an event site in the future, so contact us about ways we can help support your group.

Are you an educator or youth group leader? Education for all is at the core of our mission. Bring your groups to our rural setting to learn about art and nature through experience.
