OWN ART DAY AT HEART GALLERY SUNDAY 11 DECEMBER 11AM - 5PM
Just a quick blog post to tell you about our Own Art Day Sunday 11 December from 11am-5pm. We will have lots of goodies to give away but we really want to talk to you about how great this scheme is. OWN ART is an Arts Council England initiative designed to make it easy and affordable for everyone to own high quality contemporary art and craft.
Own Art To Take Home
The scheme seeks to support the creative economy by encouraging increased sales of work by living artists from a wide range of visual arts venues across the country and Heart Gallery wholeheartedly supports and promotes this scheme.
Heart Gallery Hebden Bridge
Why? Because it allows our customers to apply for an interest free loan of between £100 and £2000 for the purchase of original works of art or craft in any media. No deposit is required and loans are repayable in 10 monthly interest free instalments.
Own Art With an Interest Free* Loan Representative 0% APR
The Social Housing Shortage ltd edition screenprint £6.20 a month for 10 months
This means that, particularly at this time of the year, there is no need to max up the credit card and incur high interest charges because you can choose more or less anything you want from Heart Gallery and buy it on the Own Art scheme interest free …. it doesn’t cost you a penny more than the price of the piece(s) and you then have 10 months to pay for your purchase but you can take it away with you the same day your loan is approved! The minimum you can borrow is £100 (monthly repayment of £10) but this can be used to cover a group of lower value items whose combined total adds up to £100 or more.
Think about it …. a necklace for Mum …
Silver lily necklace with white fresh water pearl £57

… a limited edition print for your Aunty and Uncle …
Boutique Shopping in County Arcade Leeds £80

Gran textile picture £60
… and a treat for you perhaps!!
Silver Primrose studs £40
All these pieces above qualify for the Own Art scheme and total £291 but you will pay just £29.10 per month for 10 months and everyone gets to own a piece by a UK based artist/maker that’s really special and not mass produced.
So, if you want to find out more about Own Art, or wish to purchase pieces from Heart Gallery on the Own Art Scheme, bob along on Sunday 11 December for some festive cheer. Joining us in the afternoon to sing Christmas Carols for your entertainment will be Gledholt Male Voice choir. They are kindly giving up their Sunday afternoon free of charge to sing a selection of popular carols and collect for various local charities so do come along and show your support. Their musical team includes Susan Wilkinson, an award winning musical director, and accompanist John S Bailey who has worked with Opera North, Freddie Starr and various award winning choral societies so this promises to be an entertaining afternoon.
