The COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme is an interest-free loan scheme that enables
you to purchase artworks by contemporary Tasmanian artists from
participating Tasmanian art galleries.
The loan is provided by Arts Tasmania through its industry development program.
All Australian residents can apply to the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme.
You can buy two or three-dimensional artworks including paintings, drawings,
sculpture, installations, glasswork, textiles, metalwork, woodwork, jewellery,
furniture, ceramics, photographs, film and video, new media and limited edition
prints. Any artwork by a Tasmanian living artist from a participating gallery that retails
between $550 - $11,500 is eligible.
The minimum amount you borrow is $1,000 and the maximum is $8,500.
This means you can buy a number of lower-priced works retailing at $550 upwards,
or with a deposit of $3,000 you can by a single $11,500 work.
There are no application or administration costs. The only cost is the retail price
of the artwork plus any freight costs you may incur.
The term of the loan is one year. Repayments are to be made each month via
direct debit in 12 installments. There are no penalties for early pay out of the loan.
