Use Sezzle at checkout to split purchases into 4 interest-free payments!

One simple hack to invest in art you love without breaking the bank: How to buy art with a payment plan

One of the reasons that I launched PxP Contemporary (and enjoy running the business) is because I love the experience of acquiring new art for my personal collection. Whether it reminds me of a special moment in my life, helps me support an artist who I truly admire, or adds personality to my apartment, each piece tells a story or evokes a certain mood. Both Kat and I wrote more about how we each got started with collecting in a blog post on Create! Magazine last year, but essentially, we both agree that building up a budget over time allowed us to make investments on the pieces of art we truly wanted to own. That said, even now, we don’t always choose to pay for artwork in full right away. We understand being cautious with spending in uncertain times, which is why PxP offers payment plans to help collectors be able to continue buying the art they love.

Depending on which work or works you’re interested in, we offer several options for payment plans. For pieces that are $1,000+ or multiple pieces totaling $1,000+, you can take advantage of our partnership with Art Money. You’ll pay an initial deposit for the artwork to the gallery and then split the rest of the balance evenly over a ten-month period interest-free (these payments will be handled by Art Money). In order to proceed with this option, you’d simply let us know the work(s) you’re interested in and then create your account with Art Money. Once they’ve verified you, we’ll get the initial deposit squared away and you can have the artwork sent to you immediately! 

For works under 1k, we offer Sezzle as an option at checkout. You can select Sezzle to split any purchase over $100 into four interest-free payments. These are paid out bi-weekly until the artwork is paid in full. Or, you can arrange a payment plan directly with the gallery instead. If you want to purchase a piece that is $800, for example, you could put down $200 as your deposit and pay $100 over the next six months, $200 over the next three months, or $300 over the next two months. We can either send you a new invoice for each installment payment or if you’re comfortable with sending us your card information, we can process the payments on our end and simply send you the receipts. We always try to be flexible with whatever works best for you.

The main difference between the three options is that by working with Art Money or Sezzle, you’ll get the artwork immediately, whereas with us, we won’t be able to send the piece to you until it is completely paid for. Please reach out with any additional questions! Drop us a line at info@pxpcontemporary.com if you’d like to discuss payment plans further.

Cheers!

"This piece is a direct reflection on the connection between art and fashion.
Photographers are sometimes forced to pick between art or editorial style photographs when in reality, the two can merge and function cohesively. There is a want for editorial style photographs to transition into gallery exhibitions and the contemporary art world."

Elisa Valenti Body Positive Art

"There is an "ideal body" that is portrayed in most of the world. Even in figurative
drawing, most models have a slimmer physique. Unfortunately, the "ideal body" only represents a fraction of the population. It's a breath of fresh air to see a realistic portrayal of a woman's figure that others may relate to."

PxP Contemporary's Second Curation with SHOWFIELDS

Alicia was invited to curate a second collection for SHOWFIELDS in February. She selected works by nine artists around the themes of human connection and the environment.

Curatorial Statement:

After spending most of 2020 indoors within the confines of our homes, we feel a collective longing for both nature and connection. These are two themes that are inherently a part of the artists’ works that I’ve selected for this curation. Some present the human form intertwined with or immersed in a landscape or other natural environment, while others compose images with figures alongside animals, flowers, and insects. Working in the mediums of collage and painting, these artists remind us to appreciate the profound beauty of our surroundings and of the importance of having respect for it now and in the years to come. 

These works of art also act as a record and documentation of life as an artist during the pandemic. While they, like everyone else, experienced loss, grief, anxiety, frustration, and fear - like nature itself, they also went through periods of growth and renewal. For me, bringing together this collection of artists is a manifestation of the belief that 2021 will indeed allow for more opportunities to connect with the environment, ourselves, and each other. It’s a sigh of relief, or rather, a breath of fresh air.
