Rentals & Purchases

Whether you want art for your home or office, we offer flexible rent and rent-to-buy options.

Personal Rentals

We make it easy to have affordable art in your home. With an Art Gallery of Nova Scotia membership, you can rent artwork for up to six months, with small monthly payments.

After six months, you can either swap it for a new piece, or buy it – it’s that simple. If you buy it, we’ll apply your rental fees to the sale price. Here's why our clients love to rent:

  • Perfect for temporary living spaces – condos, rentals or homes
  • Gives you time to decide if the art suits the space
  • Great for serial home decorators who like to change it up often!
  • Rental payments are modest, you don’t tie up your cash

Volunteer with Us

Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do – we couldn’t do it without them. Maybe that’s why our volunteers work with us for many years. If you love art and meeting people, then we'd love to hear from you!

Our volunteers receive new art, assist gallery customers and liaise with artists whose work is on display.

In addition to meeting like-minded volunteers and visitors, you’ll learn about art and hone your skills in a retail setting. It’s a great way to build your resume, or enjoy a few hours weekly with other art enthusiasts.

How it Works:

  • An Executive Director and part-time staff provide day-to-day gallery operations. 
  • Volunteers generally work weekdays, and one 3.5 hour shift: either 10:00 am until 1:30 pm, or from 1:30 pm until 5:00 pm, 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 among others.
  • Our files and transactions are computerized. Knowledge of computers is desirable, and training will be provided.

For more info please email the gallery or call 902-424-3087. If you are ready, you may fill out an Volunteer Application Form and send it in.
