More than 1,000 works of art by regional artists. Available for rent or sale.
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. At present, 250 artists are represented in the gallery, all from Oregon and Washington. All of the artwork is original and juried.
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 shows held in the Spring and Fall 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.
