Art & Space Rentals

Art Rental

ACG offers a rental program that supports the artists, the gallery and your budget. We will work with you to pair you with local and regional artists who make artwork in many styles and mediums to fit your every need in your office, home or business! There are several options within the art rental program based on your artistic interests and needs. Artwork can be rented semi-permanently for display or can be rented from different artists on a rotating basis.


Artwork installation is available for an additional fee. It is our pleasure to connect you with local and regional artists of the region and infuse the Capital Region community with quality artwork from the area’s finest artists. If interested, please contact Tony Iadicicco at
