art rental


The house is full of art because yesterday I took 8 paintings out of the Art gallery of Sudbury's art rental program. They had been in there for over a year and I wanted to refresh the work. (with two pieces) I had a conversation with Krysta Talenko, the over worked young curator, then went shopping for blouses. Dancing spider plant is being rented at present.

Art Rental is usually organized by a public gallery.

People who want to try out art in their houses, can rent it for one year at a monthly rental. The artist gets some of this rental money, the gallery gets some of the rental money.

I think that the rent can go towards the eventual purchase if desired.

Wow. I don't know why I have never heard of art rental before... it sounds like a good concept.
This post inspired me to take a closer look at your works on paper- usually it's textile work that draws me- and I love your floral paintings- especially that dancing spider plant.
