Volunteer With Us

  The Art Sales and Rental Society was founded in 1976, as a not-for-profit organization to support the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and promote Maritime artists. We are located beside the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia on Hollis Street and operate seven days per week.

  The  Society is managed by a Board of Directors and Members at Large. There are two General Meetings of all the volunteers during the year to conduct the affairs of the society

 An Executive Director and part time staff provide the day-to-day operation in the Gallery with volunteers working Monday through Friday from mid September until mid June. Volunteers generally work one shift, either 10:00 AM until 1:30 PM or an afternoon shift of 1:30 PM until 5:00 PM. The volunteer commitment is from mid September until mid June.

    Duties include  assisting clients in making their selection of art for their home or office, accepting work from artists, assisting with transactions, maintaining the collection and any other work as directed by the Executive Director.  As our files and transactions are computerized, a comfortable knowledge of computers is desirable, although training will be provided.
