2024 MiNi Art Rental Collection – Call for Submissions

The Stewart Hall Art Gallery’s Art Rental and Sales Service is launching the fourth edition of the MiNi Art Rental Collection.

The MiNi Art Rental Collection highlights the talent of children aged 12 and under residing in Pointe-Claire or attending a school in Pointe-Claire.

Parents and guardians are invited to submit the works of their young artists by completing the form.

Each year, a jury made up of art professionals, community leaders and peers choose some 50 artworks for the MiNi Art Rental Collection. The chosen young artists will receive a $25 gift certificate to a local bookstore, thanks to the Friends of Stewart Hall’s financial support.

The selected artworks will be framed by the Art Gallery and exhibited in the Kids’ Corner from February 17 to March 16, 2024. They will then be available for purchase or rental on a monthly basis at the Art Rental and Sales Service for a period of one year.

All sums collected for the rental or sale of an artwork will be donated to West Island Community Shares’ Powered by Kids for Kids campaign, in support of community groups focused on developing strong, resilient children.
