Art Rental & Sales

Art Rentals & Sales

Art Rental & Sales is a not-for-profit business operated by the Vancouver Art Gallery. Since 1952, the program has promoted emerging and mid-career Canadian artists through the rental and sale of their artwork. All the artwork in the rental program is consigned by artists who receive the majority of the fees collected, while the remaining proceeds support programming at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Choose from over 800 contemporary artworks consigned to us by local artists. Rental fees start from $10/month, and purchase options are available. Delivery and install can be arranged for you through our industry partners. Entry to the showroom is always free; see Reception for access.

FEATURED ARTISTS:
Nicola Tibbetts | January 8 to March 23

In the winter of 2015, Nicola Tibbetts became one of many short-term inhabitants of Iqaluit, Nunavut. The paintings she made there showcase the beauty of the North, and document a short period in Iqaluit’s twenty-year history as a Canadian capital. Tibbetts will discuss the theme of beauty, a complex subject with deep and often complicated roots in North American landscape painting, as it relates to the Canadian North.

Barbara Strigel and Shirley Wiebe | March 26 to June 8

Barbara Strigel and Shirley Wiebe address Vancouver’s changing urban landscape in their showcase Double Vision. Working in the tradition of street photography, Strigel explores the idea that the built and perceived spaces of the city exist both simultaneously and separately. Meanwhile, Wiebe’s focus is on how people and communities live, work and create meaning in the context of a city. Together, the works in Double Vision present two ways of seeing Vancouver.
This talk is presented as part of Capture Photography Festival.
