Here is another goody to help with your art purchases in store. 

 

WHAT IS MY ART?

 

My Art is a not-for-profit organisation that makes it easier to own original art through most New Zealand galleries by providing interest-free loans.

 

“Our mission is to support artists and the vibrancy of the New Zealand art scene by making the purchase of art more accessible - so everyone can experience the joy of living with art.

 

And we pay the gallery directly, so you can take your art home and enjoy it straight away, knowing that the artist has been paid in full. Interest-free loans are available from $1,000 to $50,000, require a 10% deposit and nine equal monthly repayments.”

 

 

THE PROCESS:

 

STEP 1 : APPLY FOR AN ART LOAN

“Apply online and get pre-approved before you go art shopping or apply in a participating gallery. You can borrow any amount between $1,000 and $50,000. We lend up to 90% of the artwork price. We’ll check your credit history, calculate the monthly payment and provide your loan approval by email. Your loan approval is valid for 90 days.

 

 

STEP 2 : SELECT YOUR ART WORK

Maybe you have an artwork in mind, or maybe the piece you want is more than the cash you have available. Either way, visit a participating gallery and make your selection.

 

  

STEP 3 : FINALISE THE DETAILS

The gallery owner will require a deposit of 10% or more. The balance of the purchase price will be covered by your loan. The gallery owner can help you finalise your loan at the time of purchase. Make sure you bring your photo ID (driver licence or passport) to the gallery along with your bank account details.

 

 

STEP 4 : APPRECIATE YOUR ART

Take your art home and start enjoying it. You’ll receive a copy of your loan agreement and repayment schedule (nine equal monthly repayments). Your first loan payment will be deducted one month after purchase date.”
