Regarding the ARR (Artist Resale Right): The ARR is not yet available in Canada however, we are leading by example to support Canadian Visual Artists and voluntarily / recognize it for art sold on the secondary market (respecting certain criteria). The Artist’s Resale Right (ARR) entitles the creators (or the ‘authors’) of original works of art (including paintings, engravings, sculpture and ceramics) to a royalty each time one of their works is resold through an auction house or art market professional. Contact us for details.
Thank you for your interest; we appreciate your business and look forward to assisting you.
