Call for Visual Artists - Art Rental Programme 2017


North Vancouver Community Arts Council


Oct. 23, 2016 / Nov. 6, 2016

Call for Artists Description: 

The North Vancouver Community Arts Council seeks visual artists to participate in the Art Rental Programme. We are continuing to build our collection to include artwork with a wide variety of subject matter and styles that reflect the work of our talented community of artists.

This programme promotes the appreciation of visual arts in our community by making the work of local artists available for display in homes and offices. Art rental provides individuals and businesses an affordable and flexible way to enjoy a wide range of original 2-dimensional works including paintings, photography and mixed media works. 

The Art Rental Programme generates revenue and exposure for individual artists through renting works to our large and diverse clientele. Rental fees are based on the value of the artwork and royalties are paid to artists semi-annually (less a 30% administration fee). Clients may also purchase artwork from the collection. The art rental programme provides clients the unique opportunity to “try out” artwork in their homes and offices that they may later purchase.

The North Vancouver Community Arts Council will hold two jury days for new art rental work. All participating artists must be members in good standing of the Arts Council and a jury fee of $15.00 is required. Accepted artwork is contracted to the Art Rental Collection for a minimum of one year. Artists may submit up to 3 pieces of their work. Works must be no larger than 48" x 48" and no smaller than 8" x 10". All work must be properly finished with frames and hanging wire. Paintings may have painted edges.

How to Apply:
