Art Rental how to
We have put measures in place to keep staff and renters safe:
- we ask visitors to use hand sanitizer upon arrival and wear a mask
- 1 visitor (or family bubble) at a time in Art Rental Salon
- art is ‘quarantined’ upon return before unwrapped or re-rented
- see our Plan Your Visit page for our complete COVID-19 policies and procedures
If you would like to rent or purchase art, you are welcome to visit in person, or browse the online collection.
About Art Rental
Art rental is an affordable and flexible way to enjoy original 2-dimensional art. Our Art Rental Programme represents approximately 150 artists with over 400 original works in a wide variety of styles and subjects. Artworks include paintings, photography and mixed media with pieces ranging in size from 12″ x 12″ to 48″ x 48″. View the Art Rental Collection through our online gallery or in person during gallery hours.
To rent artwork*, you need to have a current membership with North Van Arts ($25-35 annually for basic, $150 for corporate) and complete a Art Rental Client Contract. This is done in person during gallery hours. Artwork can also be purchased outright – no membership required. Applicable taxes apply to rental fee and purchase price.

Rent Art for your home
If you are intending to purchase original art, you can rent work while deciding which piece to invest in. If you just moved into a new space, you can rent art to fill bare walls and create a lived-in feeling. When you plan to sell your home, home staging with original artwork can increase the aesthetic appeal of your residence. Art Rental is also an inexpensive way to impress your guests or create a distinctive mood for a special event or dinner party, or your home office!
Rent Art for your place of business
Enhance the atmosphere of your work environment. Use artwork at a restaurant, spa or office to create ambiance and energize the space. Art Rental provides exposure for local artists and acts as a tax-deductible expense for your business. Browse the collection online then visit us in person to confirm your selections, fill out the paperwork and pick up the artwork.
