WHY RENT ART? There are many reasons to rent original works of art for your home or business:
- Explore the works of diverse artists working in a variety of mediums and styles.
- Enjoy a work of art in your space before committing to purchase.
- Refresh your environment by changing your artwork annually.
- Show support for working artists within your creative community.
- Rental fees are a tax-deductible business expense.
HOW DOES THE ART RENTAL PROGRAM WORK?
Our art rental program offers you access to a wide range of exceptional art at affordable monthly prices. We also offer excellent full service options, from consultation to installation. Once you have selected the artwork that you like, you will then sign a contract, arrange payment, and voilà!
Your artwork is ready to hang on your wall. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? Monthly rental fees are calculated at 5% of the retail price, billed in three month cycles. Should you decide you want to purchase the artwork, the first three months of your rental fees may be applied to the purchase price. WHAT IS THE RENTAL REGION? Our rental area is approximately a 50km radius around Kingston (excluding the US). HOW DO I RECEIVE THE ARTWORK? If the artwork you have rented can fit safely in your vehicle, we encourage you to take it with you, along with a handy guide on installing artwork. If you prefer, you may take advantage of our delivery and installation services, which start as low as $50 in town and includes pick up at the end of the lease (Service fees will vary with number of artworks, distance, and those installations which require a team of two people). WHAT IF THE WORK IS DAMAGED? AM I RESPONSIBLE? While in possession of a rented work of art, it is your responsibility to cover the cost of any damage, loss or theft. It is wise to contact your insurance company to make sure you have adequate coverage under your existing policy.
