Art Rental & Sales

Art Rentals & 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 artists who receive the majority of the fees collected, while the remaining proceeds support programming at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Choose from over 800 contemporary artworks consigned to us by local artists. Rental fees start from $10/month, and purchase options are available. Delivery and install can be arranged for you through our industry partners. Entry to the showroom is always free; see Reception for access.

Jean Paul Langlois | August 27 to November 10

Jean Paul Langlois is a Métis artist who paints from his home studio in East Vancouver. Influenced by Pop Art, Neo-expressionism and Saturday morning cartoons, he paints large canvasses in heavily saturated, contrasting colours. His subject matter is informed by cinema, especially Westerns, a genre owing its visual and written narrative to codes and iconography that are universal. While themes examined include violence and racism, the images are often bright and playful.
