The aims of the scheme are:
To enable more people to live with the art and craft they love
To promote the presentation and sale of high quality works of art through a network of visual arts venues and galleries across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland
To support contemporary artists by encouraging increased sales of work across a breadth of practice.
How does it work?
Own Art loans are available for the purchase of contemporary art and craft of any kind, and in any media. That means you can choose more or less anything you want from paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture, to glassware, ceramics, jewellery, furniture and textiles.
It allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to a maximum of £2,500 for the purchase of works of art by living artists. It can be used to cover a group of lower value items whose combined total adds up to £100 or more. If you are buying something more valuable than £2,500 you can use it as a part payment.
Own Art can also be used for art and craft commissions - you can have a piece made direct from an artist or maker specifically for you. Ask the gallery team about commissions.
It takes about 10 minutes to complete an Own Art application and you can collect your artwork immediately. No deposit is necessary when applying for an Own Art loan.
In addition to making an Own Art application in the Gallery, we can now offer an option of E-Signature and completing an application over the phone. Your artwork can be posted or collected from the Gallery.
There is no limit to the number of times that you can use the scheme. However, you will normally have to allow at least 4 months between loan applications in order to establish a repayment record with the finance company.
