Are you an artist working in 2D media?
Join the Art Rental Programme!
Art Rental promotes the appreciation of visual arts in our community by making the work of local artists available for display in homes, offices, and film and television production sets. Our programme provides individuals and businesses an affordable and flexible way to enjoy a wide range of original 2-dimensional works including paintings, photographs and mixed media works.
How to join the programme
Selection of artwork for the Art Rental Programme is by adjudication and takes place every year in the fall. Please note that due to COVID-19, the submission process for 2021 will be online. To participate, artists must register their submissions online (including the title, medium, measurements, and photographs of each of their 1 – 3 artworks) and pay a $15 jury fee in advance.
Please see the Art Rental Programme 2021 Call for Artists for a detailed description of the new submission requirements.
The Art Rental Programme generates revenue and builds awareness for individual artists by renting works to our large and diverse clientele. The selling price of the artwork is set by the artist and the rental fee is based on the selling price. Rental royalties and net sales revenue are paid to artists semi-annually (less a 30% administration fee). All artwork in the programme is displayed on our website in the Art Rental Gallery and at CityScape Community ArtSpace.
For all current opportunities for artists see Calls for Artists.
The Art Rental Programme provides clients a unique opportunity to “try out” artwork in their homes and offices that they may later purchase. Renting takes away a lot of the pressure involved in buying original art. Clients can have fun ‘trying out’ work in their spaces, getting comfortable, and welcoming the art into their everyday living space.
To participate in the Art Rental Programme as an artist or a client, membership is required. Join here.
