Want to deck the walls with some new artwork, but holiday spending has your budget on thin ice?
Look no further than North Van Arts’ renowned art rental program, with an in-person show on display in the new year.
From Jan. 13 to Feb. 11, stop by CityScape Community Art Space on Lonsdale Avenue to peruse over 400 pieces in the collection that are available to rent at fees in the $10 to $60 per-month range. An opening reception is scheduled for Jan. 12, 7-9 p.m.
According to North Van Arts, the “salon-style” exhibition will represent works by local artists in many techniques, such as woodcut prints, lithography, photography, oil, acrylic, watercolour and mixed media.
The arts society said it’s added 195 new artworks to the art rental program, with pieces ranging from 8 x 10 inches to 48 x 48 inches in size.
“Stop by CityScape Community ArtSpace to see a world of colourful paintings, dazzling photographs, breathtaking landscapes, and unique abstract artworks,” reads a statement.
“It has been two years since we have been able to host an opening reception for art rental, and we are excited to celebrate the new works with the community. Join us to meet and mingle with the artists in the program.”
