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 something similar, but the payment plan would be directly with the gallery instead. So, 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 two options is that by working with Art Money, you’ll get the artwork immediately, whereas with us, we won’t be able to send the piece to you until it is paid in full. Please reach out with any additional questions! Drop us a line at email@example.com if you’d like to discuss payment plans further.
