Renting art for your business is a unique way to engage your clients, reward your employees, and support your community. For our corporate clients we offer a rental period of 12 months. Delivery and installation services are available for an additional charge. Rental fees are considered a tax-deductible expense.

About the Art Sales and Rental Society

The Art Sales and Rental Society was founded in 1976 as a not-for-profit organization to benefit the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia's acquisition fund and promote Atlantic Canadian artists by offering quality art to the public. The Art Sales and Rental Society is governed by volunteers.

Volunteer with Us

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.
