 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.

Kari Kristensen’s work embraces disparate lines of Canadian and international art history, responding to both through new forms. Printmaking, in spite of sustained practice across geography and cultures, has a quiet platform in contemporary Western art. She seeks to re-imagine the Canadian Landscape tradition and its persistence in her and our consciousness, most notably in her current series Imagined Landscape which includes both intricately cut linoleum prints as well as monoserigraphs. Harnessing lino printing’s even ink application, combined with the choice of a clean monochrome aesthetic, Kristensen fully embraces the limitations of the medium itself, only to defy them.
