Have you ever seen a piece of artwork, fallen in love and felt that you had to have it, but were deterred by the price? You’re not alone…
Here at Mall Galleries, we believe that everybody should be able to own the art that they love. We are aiming to make that a reality by offering the Own Art scheme during our Federation of British Artists Society Exhibitions and for all works on our Buy Art | Buy Now online gallery. We have offered Own Art to the buying public for a few years now, and the success stories are countless. However, we want more people to seize this amazing opportunity and realise that they too can take home their dream artworks.
Own Art is a brilliant national initiative designed to make art more affordable, accessible and available to all UK residents over the age of 18, subject to status. It is an interest-free loan, through which the buyer can borrow up to £2,000. This allows those who are eligible to buy works of art from any of these exhibitions by spreading the cost over a ten month period at a 0% APR.
How do I go about making a purchase through Own Art at Mall Galleries?
Purchasing a work of art here at Mall Galleries or on Buy Art | Buy Now, through the Own Art scheme, could not be simpler, faster, or more painless.
When purchasing a work at the Gallery Desk, Mall Galleries take a minimum of a 10% deposit at the time of purchase and we will set up a 20-30 minute appointment with yourself and a friendly, trained member of Mall Galleries staff. During this private one-to-one appointment we will run through the Terms and Conditions with you, then enter your information to do a credit check with Hitachi Capital. You will need to bring with you is your proof of identity, your proof of address and your bank details.
Alternatively, when purchasing a work seen on Buy Art | Buy Now, you will need to call Mall Galleries and the above process is executed over the phone. You will need to be in front of a computer with access to email and your bank details. The reception of the work of art is used as a proof of address so make sure the address you give Own Art matches the delivery address.
When your Own Art application is approved, the work is yours to take away once the exhibition has closed or if purchasing from Buy Art | Buy Now it will be automatically dispatched to your given address.
Equal instalments are taken from your bank account for ten months via Direct Debit. However, should you wish to pay off the remaining sum sooner, or have any other queries, you will be supplied with Hitachi Capital’s contact details.
By offering Own Art, we can enable you to kickstart your personal art collection or expand your criteria when thinking about purchasing high-quality contemporary art from us.
