Original Works of Art, available for rental or purchase
The Rental Sales Gallery is a department of the Portland Art Museum, and was founded in 1959 as a nonprofit gallery to help promote public awareness of regional artists. We represent more than 200 artists from Oregon and Washington State here in the Gallery.
There are at least 600 pieces of art in the gallery at any one time, with a total inventory of more than 1,000 works. Mediums include: oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings, wood, metal, and stone sculpture, drawings, collages, photography and framed prints.
The Rental Sales Gallery hosts at least two major shows per year. The Spring and Fall Shows highlight new works by current member artists, and every other year, we host a Summer Show, which highlights works by new gallery members. We also regularly host artist demonstrations and talks, so there is always something fun on the horizon. Click here to find out more.
In Memorial: Jennifer Zika
Jennifer Lynn Zika
Dec. 23, 1964 – March 19, 2021
Jennifer had a unique and passionate soul, and is best remembered as a loving daughter, devoted sister, crazy aunt, dear friend, “Mother of Lou,” and dedicated Rental Sales Gallery Manager at the Portland Art Museum for over 20 years.
She was truly “The Heart of the Gallery” and is deeply missed by our staff, volunteers, artists and clients.
This memorial was created by images provided by volunteers, artists, friends and colleagues of Jennifer. Thank you to you all for sharing these special and personal moments.
