About the ArtBank

You have a business with space open to the public?

You’d like original artwork on the walls?

Welcome to the CAGAC ArtBank!

Art Bank Mission:

The CAGAC Art Bank is a Collectif d’artistes de Glengarry Artists’ Collective initiative that offers a coordinated means for member artists to make their work available to the public in two ways. 

  1. By encouraging local businesses to borrow original artwork to show in public areas of their place of business.
  2. By helping any visitor to the ArtBank website to connect with artists for direct sales. 

This presents an opportunity for collaboration in raising awareness of the positive impact of art and culture on personal and community growth.

Visit these pages to view artworks by local artists, make connections to purchase or borrow works using simple agreements.  These artworks can be borrowed to be shown in public spaces such as waiting rooms, lobbies or even some offices as long as they can be seen by the public entering your place of business.  

  • Purchase requests to the ArtBank will be forwarded directly to the artist for all sales arrangements.
  • Loan periods of a minimum of 4 months up to 12 months can be arranged.
