Studio22 offers, for Sale and Rent, the artwork of over 40 local and national artists. We work on a commission basis with our artists. They own the artwork we display. When we sell or rent the artwork, the artist is paid and the gallery collects its commission.
We aim to put our artwork in your homes, in your businesses – in your life. We have several sales and rental options.
All of Studio22’s art is for sale. Almost all of the artwork in our current collection is also available for rent to those who live or work in Ontario and within a 50 km radius of the gallery. This is the Kingston advantage. We love our city and want it to shine with the energy, beauty and vitality of our Canadian Art & Artists.

You know what you like. You know what you want.
Come in and purchase directly from the gallery or buy online from the comfort of your home. Online sales offer local pick-up from the gallery or select from several shipping options within Canada or to the US, Europe and elsewhere.
Rent to Try
~ For those who like change and experimentation ~
If you live or work within the Kingston region, you can rent our art. We offer consultation, delivery and installation services. If you are a business, you can expense your leasing costs. For individuals, you can choose to rent your art so that you can change it regularly and enjoy living with many different pieces of art over the years.
We rent our art in 3-month increments at a rate of 4% of the purchase price per month plus HST. You can change up your art every 3 months or choose to continue to enjoy the same works for a year or more.
*There is a $20/month minimum rental. Our smallest works can be rented together to achieve that minimum required rate.
You can RENT TO TRY. Rent for up to 3 months and you can apply all of your rental fees to the purchase price. Pay the balance owing and the artwork belongs to you for no extra cost.
Sometimes it is hard to know if a piece of art is exactly right for your circumstance. Having an opportunity to live with a piece for a period of time helps you decide if you want it for life. Our rent to try option gives you time to decide.
Payment Plan Option
~ For those who know what they want but need time ~
Spread your art payments over 1 year. Pay 25–50% of the art price as a down payment. The balance owing is spread over the remaining 11 months of the year with an additional 5% fee added to each month’s payment. Paying a larger down payment or paying the balance before the year is up will result in you paying less service fees.
