Call for submission – 2020 Art rental collection

Inaugurated in 1967, the Art Rental and Sales Service of the Stewart Hall Art Gallery mandate is to promote and support the accessibility of original works of art to the public. This service offers individuals and corporations the opportunity to rent or buy works of art. Every fall, the Art Rental and Sales Service renews its collection by inviting the artists of the greater Montreal area to submit their works to a professional jury. After being presented in a yearly exhibition at the Gallery, the selected works are available for sale or for rent for one year at the Art Rental and Sales Service.

We wish to invite you to submit your work for consideration for The Art Rental Collection 2020 at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery. Please note the following:

  • maximum of three works of art may be submitted from an artist. We will be accepting paintings, photographs, drawings, mixed media and original prints.
  • Work submitted by applicants must be produced within the past five years.
  • Each work must be ready to hang and the frame has to be in good condition.
  • Only original works of art may be submitted. We do not permit giclée prints (with the exception of digital photographs).
  • Each work must be clearly identified on the back with the name of the artist, title of work, date, medium, size (maximum size including frame 92 cm x 110 cm : 36 in x 42 in) and price (maximum $ 1 500).
  • All rental payments (a percentage of the sale price per month) collected will be remitted in full to the artist twice a year (June and December).
  • The city of Pointe-Claire retains a commission of 25% for works sold.
  • Please complete two copies of the Registration Form and bring them with you when you submit your artworks. Click here for the form.
