Own Art and Own Art Plus are membership schemes for galleries and other retailers of contemporary visual arts and crafts. They are designed to make it easy and affordable for everyone to buy contemporary works of art and craft. Own Art member retailers can offer customers the opportunity to spread the cost of eligible purchases over ten months with an interest free loan of £100 to £25,000.
The Own Art schemes are delivered by Creative United, in partnership with Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance. Creative United is a Community Interest Company funded by Arts Council England which provides a range of products and services designed to support the growth and development of the arts and creative industries.
The application takes a matter of minutes and you can walk away with the artwork you love the very same day.
Payments are spread over 10 months. You may have a multiple amount of artworks on one scheme and as as soon as one scheme ends you can start another, this enables clients to build a fantastic collection of artwork.
