Juried by Dina Deitsch, Director and Chief Curator, Tufts University Art Galleries 

Why RED? For over 20 years, the Cambridge Art Association has hosted a fall exhibit, open to artists from the New England states, centered around a color – RED or BLUE, depending on the year. Both the success of the exhibit series, and the challenge to participating artists, lies in channeling the varied meanings of a color like RED. It is the color of action, violence, heat. It is the color of luck, happiness, and passion. RED is more than a color. Past jurors for the RED & BLUE Biennials include: Joseph Ketner; Amy Sadao (Director, ICA Philadelphia); Howard Yezerski (Miller Yezerski Gallery); Carl Belz (Rose Art Museum); Jane Farver (MIT List Visual Arts Center); Vera Ingrid Grant (The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African-American Art); Nick Capasso (Fitchburg Art Museum); Sarah Montross (deCordova Sculpture Park & Museum); Dan Byers (Carpenter Center for Visual Arts); and Layla Bermeo (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston)

This program is a member benefit for CAA members, with participation limited to members in good-standing (Artist, Associate, Lifetime levels). Submission of work to the Art Rental Program does not guarantee participation. 

Please have the following ready before you begin the application: 

-Your Artist Statement 

-Up to 10 CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ARTWORKS. Image files must be saved as JPG, TIFF or PNG files. We require that you include pricing information for all artwork entered into the Rental Program. (Please note: The Program Manager will not contact you regarding availability of an individual work until *after* a client proposal is accepted. If images you have uploaded become unavailable please contact the Art Rental Consultant to notify them of this change in availability.)


Program FAQ:

Q: What kind of artwork are corporate clients looking for? 

A: Generally, our current clients prefer bold, abstract works. We currently have lending artists working in a variety of media, including: painting (oil, acrylic, watercolor); photography; mixed media; printmaking; encaustic. If you have a question about your work being the right fit for the program, please contact our Erin Becker, at ebecker@cambridgeart.org. 


Q: I submitted my work to the Art Rental Program. How long will it take before my first rental? 

A: It depends. Submission to the Program does not guarantee that your work will be rented to a client. We custom curate each client space, so what works for one client might not work for another. 


Q: How long will my work be out on loan?

A: Cambridge Art Association's Art Rental Program offers rentals to corporate clients for 6 or 12 month intervals. 


Q: Will I receive payment when my artwork is rented to a client? 

A: Yes! The rental pricing breakdown is as follows:

  • 6 month rental = artists receive 10% of the purchase price
  • 12 month rental = artists receive 20% of the purchase price

So, let's say your artwork is priced at $1,000. The client would pay the following rates:

  • 6 month rental = $200, of which the artist would receive $100
  • 12 month rental = $400, of which the artist would receive $200

Those fees are then divided 50/50 between the Artist and the Cambridge Art Association. Cambridge Art Association handles all transport, delivery, installation, and deinstallation of the artwork. We work as a representative of our members, helping you to both expand the visibility of your artwork, and ensure you are fairly compensated.
