Art Lending Service

Finland's first art lending service

Get your prestigious art from the Art Lending Service, where you can borrow art, buy in installments or simply via one time payment.

Founded in 1971, the oldest Art Lending Service in Finland (Joensuun Taidelainaamo) is located in Art Center Ahjo.

The Art Lending Service displays the art works from the members of the Joensuu Artist Association. The works of art can be borrowed or bought via one-time payment. We accept most credit and debit cards.

Most of the works held in the Art Lending Service can be viewed in the online gallery.
The works displayed in the web gallery can be found either at the Art Lending Service (note: "Taidelainaamossa") or at the artist's studio (note: "Taiteilijan ateljeessa"). The works in Artist's Studio can be arranged for a viewing at the Art Lending Service by request.

All available art works are not listed in the webshop, so paying a visit to the Art Lending Service is worth it!

All works are purchased and borrowed and the related agreements are made on the spot at Joensuu Art Lending Service. The borrower will arrange the proper transportation of the artwork and will be liable for any potential damage to the work during the rental period. The borrower will pay a monthy rental fee, the amount of which depends on the original selling price of the work. The borrowed work can be returned to the Art Lending Service at any time.

The work can be bought with cash or in installments via borrowing.

You can find us on social media!
