If you choose not to submit an application form, the Gallery will release the artwork once the two-day holding period has expired. You will then be responsible for collecting any deposit you have paid.
Note that if you are not able to be physically present at the gallery and are buying a work from the gallery’s website, you should call the gallery and they will fill out the Holding Form over the phone. In this instance, you will need to provide 2 sets of photo identification when you submit your application.
Prior to completing the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme Loan Application Form, you must check that you are eligible for the scheme.
Please read the dot points in Part 3 of the application form. Once you are satisfied that you are eligible for the scheme, you can then move on to the Terms and Conditions.
If you are eligible to participate in the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme, the next step is to read and accept the loan Terms and Conditions.
You must read the terms and conditions of a loan under the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme carefully prior to deciding whether to proceed with an application.
If you accept the Terms and Conditions of a loan, then the next step is to fill in and submit the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme Loan Application Form.
Your application must be submitted electronically. To do this, open the Application Form and save a copy to your desktop (select "Save As"). Now all you need to do is fill in the Application Form and then email it as an attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The electronic version of your Application Form must be received prior to the expiration of the artwork holding period.
A hard copy of the Application Form must also be sent to the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme, arts@work, 146 Elizabeth Street, Hobart, Tas, 7001 within three days of submitting the electronic version. You may also want to keep a copy for your records.
You will be notified of the outcome of your application within five working days of receipt of the electronic Application Form.
If your application is not successful we will notify you and you will then be entitled to a refund of any holding deposit you may have paid to the Gallery.
If your application for a loan from the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme is successful, you will then be required to sign and return a Loan Agreement which is the contract between you and arts@work for the provision of the loan. We will send you the Loan Agreement and a Direct Debit Authority, both of which must be returned to arts@work within five working days of the postmarked date.
Once we have the signed Loan Agreement and Direct Debit Authority we will advance the loan amount directly to the Gallery, after which time you can collect your purchase as long as there are no outstanding balances or freight charges owing.
