ArtTip #2: Payment Plans

30 Sep

Art prices can be scary.  Because of this, Amy and I are sometimes asked about discounting artworks.  A little known fact is that galleries often have very little wiggle room to discount, as it is important to maintain an artist’s current market value as well as protect the collector’s investment.

But, in an effort to make art more approachable as well as help with potential sticker shock, we offer our collectors the flexibility of acquiring art through payment plans. In breaking payments into monthly installments, it is often easier to acquire that “one-amazing-piece-that-you-can’t-live-without-but-is-a- little-over-your-monthly-budget-at-the-moment”.  Moral of the story: don’t be afraid to ask!
