Art Rental FAQ's

WHY SHOULD YOU RENT ARTWORK?

The art rental sales and service program offers individuals and businesses an opportunity to display a diverse selection of original regional contemporary art with a minimum financial obligation. It also provides the renter with a generous amount of time to decide, in the event they wish to purchase the artwork.

RENT TO OWN PROGRAM

The rental fees paid will be deducted from the regular purchase price of the artwork.

MAXIMUM RENTAL PERIODS

Individuals

Artwork may be rented for three months at a time to a maximum of six months. After six months the artwork must be purchased or returned to the gallery.

Businesses

Commercial renters may book artwork for six months, to a maximum of one year. There is no limit to the number of works a business can rent. Rental fees are a deductible business expense.

DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION

We do not offer a delivery or installation service at this time.

LATE FEES

Should an artwork be returned after the date stated on the contract, a late fee of $1 per day will be charged.

INSURANCE

The renter is responsible for the artwork while it is on the renter's premises and agrees to pay for any damages or loss. By signing a rental agreement, the renter agrees to pay for any loss or damages as a result of transporting or improper care of the piece.

THE ARTWORK

Rental artwork must be hung at the address indicated on the rental contract. No work of art may be copied, photographed or reproduced in any way or used for any commercial purpose.

CARE OF THE ARTWORK

  • DO NOT handle the surface of the artwork.
  • DO NOT hang the work on gummed paper hangers.
  • DO NOT expose the works to direct sunlight or direct fluorescent lights for long periods of time.
  • DO NOT put artworks in damp areas or near direct heat.
  • The renter agrees that the work will not be cleaned, repaired or removed from the frame.
