Art Rentals & Sales

The MacLaren Art Centre strives to bring art to everyday life in our community. Our Art Rental and Sales Programme takes this goal a step further by offering a diverse selection of framed works of art by professional artists for your home or office.

A Wide Variety of Artworks

With a wide variety of exceptional artwork in our inventory, Art Rental includes paintings, limited edition prints and photographs by artists of local, regional and national importance. Many of these artists are represented in the MacLaren’s Permanent Collection, such as Frances Thomas, Joe Fafard, Norval Morrisseau and Akira Komoto.

Flexible Rental and Purchase Plan

The duration of each rental is generally one year and the monthly fee is 3% of the value of each artwork. At the end of the rental period, you may choose to purchase the artwork and your rental payments will be deducted from the purchase price. Renewing your rental, exchanging your artwork for something new, or terminating your rental are options as well.
