Artists Retreats

Writers Guild Director Charles Prier

The Bowers House is a perfect venue for a writing workshop or overnight group retreat with its Georgia Review and Writing Guild associations and proximity to the University of Georgia and Clemson. Retreat Residents and members of the house are expected to share cooking and cleaning duties and launder their own linens on longer residencies. Artists share the end results or focus of their retreat with a public or private concert, reading film or gallery showing and are encouraged to interact with and welcome the local community. The homes is an active art gallery as well, which brings in additional needed funding. Our ‘Bowers Hour’ programming expands and amplifies the reach of arts beyond the facility.

We accept donations and proposals for joint ventures and co-production on the property, and honor financial sponsors with VIP catered weekend stays and public recognition.
