Staging a home for sale? Have an empty wall in your office? Love contemporary art but can't decide what to purchase? Choose from over 800 contemporary artworks consigned to us by local artists and galleries. Rental fees are as little as $10/month and purchase options are also available.

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. The remaining proceeds are donated to the Vancouver Art Gallery.

  • The average rental fee is $80/month
  • Rental fees are a deductible business expense
  • Delivery and installation is available (for an additional fee)
  • All the artwork is also available for purchase
  • If you'd like to buy the art you're renting, we'll credit up to three months of your paid rental fees to the purchase

Rebecca Donald’s brooding West Coast landscapes blend local imagery with the artist’s interest in the physical properties of paint. Using oils and acrylics, she layers light washes with heavily textured applications of paint over the surfaces of her canvases. Donald received her MFA from UBC in 2006.
