Rent & purchase original artwork by a juried selection of local emerging and mid-career artists.


 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.

Mira Song, Crack Series: Painting #8, Narrow alley in hometown, oil and acrylic on canvas, 19" x 15", 2017

Mira Song’s practice explores specific natural and architectural spaces, reframing them through the embodiment of a different set of senses, memories, and imagination. Anchored in her own memories and perceptions, her paintings and sculptural installations are manifestations of this transient nature of space and its elements- from which she hopes a viewer can extract their own experience, unrestricted by the barriers between the real and the surreal.

Song holds a Master of Applied Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She divides her time between Vancouver and Seoul, Korea.
