    The Art Buyer gallery is delighted to be a member of Own Art.

    Own Art is a national initiative, supported by Arts Council England, to make it easy and affordable to buy contemporary art by allowing you to spread the cost of your purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan.

    Own Art loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to £2,500 and pay it back over 10 months, completely interest-free. You can choose to finance all or just part of your purchase and multiple items can be bought with one loan. The best part is that you can take your masterpiece home with you straight away.

    Applying for an Own Art loan is easy!

    The first stage is the fun bit – deciding what to buy! Once you’ve found the artwork that you want to buy, just let us know that you’d like to apply for an Own Art loan to finance your purchase.
