LAGS Off-Season Gallery Rentals Available!

From Secretary, Les French

A valuable membership benefit is the chance to rent our spectacular Gallery in the off-season. Members pay a very reasonable rental fee and then retain 100% of their sale proceeds.

Most of Nov and Dec has been booked, with Jan and Feb still presenting great opportunities.

You can check availability on our website at
https://www.lunenburgartgallery.com/calendar

The rental application is also on our website. It's a fillable PDF file which can be completed online - on most devices - and emailed back to me at secretary@lunenburgartsociety.ca. If that doesn't work on your device, just print the form, complete it, and scan it back - or send me a photo of it from your phone. It doesn't have to be pretty - just legible – and I don’t need the original form.

We want to be fair to all Members. If you're interested in booking, send me an email with the dates you'd like -
secretary@lunenburgartsociety.ca. If they’re available, I'll hold the dates for 48 hours, giving you time to submit your rental application and get your fee paid, to secure your booking.

The rental fee e-transfer address is the same as for membership dues, and it’s shown on the rental form -
payments@lunenburgartsociety.ca. If you're unable to do an e-transfer, we'll work with you.
I’m keeping a cancellation list, so if your preferred rental date is already gone, just let me know, and I’ll put you on my list. You might still “luck out”.

Our rental program helps the Gallery, too. Even though we usually have only an 8-month exhibition season, we have 12 months of expenses. Rental fees help us keep the doors open.


Good luck for your every success!
