Own Art makes buying art easy and affordable by letting you spread the cost of your purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan.
How does it work?
Own Art is an Arts Council of England initiative run by Creative United. It allows you to buy any original work (paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture, to glassware, ceramics, jewellery, furniture and textiles) up to £2,500 and pay for it over 10 months. It works like any other credit application and will need some information about you and your employment. You don’t have to have a job to apply but here is a list of the requirements
- Over the age of 18
- A permanent UK resident
- Working at least 16 hours a week (employed or self-employed)
- A retired person in receipt of a pension
If you are not working but are married to or living with a partner who does have a full time job, then you may still apply provided that your partner is happy for their employment details to be included on your application.
What can I buy?
Everything on our website can be bought using Own Art. It goes from £100 to £2,500 but you can have several small items that come to £100. So you can buy two pairs of earrings at £50 using Own Art.
How can I apply?
The easiest way is in the gallery where we can ask all the relevant questions but we can also do it over the phone. Ring 01738 631085. It only takes about 10 minutes to complete an application.
We can also send you an email with the questions that you need to answer.
