Art Rental & 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 the artists who receive the majority of the fees collected. Remaining proceeds help fund programming at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Visit the Art Rental & Sales Showroom on the main floor annex of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Entry is free to the general public. See Reception for access.
