The first scheme of its type in Australia, the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme is an interest free loan program that enables you to purchase works by contemporary Tasmanian artists.
All Australian residents can apply to the scheme which can only be accessed through a select group of Tasmanian galleries. You can buy sculpture, glasswork, ceramics, paintings, drawings, photography, furniture, jewellery … any artwork by a Tasmanian living artist that retails between $550 – $11,500.
The minimum amount you can borrow is $1000 and the maximum is $8,500. This means that you can buy a number of lower priced works retailing at $550 or more with a total minimum value of $1,000 to $8,500, or with a deposit of $3,000 you can buy a single work valued at $11,500. There are no application or administrative costs. The only cost is the retail price of the artwork.

The Collect Art Purchase Scheme is an initiative of Arts Tasmania through its industry development program.
