New to Art Buying?

Buying art for the first time, or even negotiating the vast area of contemporary art, can be a daunting prospect. But with a little time spent getting to know the ropes, buying the art you love can be an exciting and rewarding experience.

With many thousands of artists work to choose from, we believe that there is something for everyone out there, but selecting can be a bit daunting. However, we make things easy for you by hand picking work from the very best artists. The piece that will be your first purchase is just waiting to be discovered in the Harrison Lord Gallery. Take a look at our artist page where you can search for a style that catches your eye. The best way however is to pop into the gallery and see if anything takes your fancy in person, we are constantly changing our displays and getting in new artists and crafts people so you will always be able to see something different.

If something has caught your eye, feel free to ask staff in the gallery to give you more information about the artist, what inspired them and how they created the work. Knowing more about how and why the work has been made will develop your understanding of the artist, and maybe make you love it all the more! It will also give a sense of where a particular artist or type of work sits within the context of the wider contemporary art or craft scene.

Finally, although buying art can lead to some great investments, most people buy simply because they fall in love with a piece of work. Follow your instincts – you want make sure that you are going home with something that you will continue to enjoy for years to come.

Starting your Collection

Art is the ultimate personal statement.  In many ways your choices in art are a window to your soul.  If you buy the art you love, art that speaks to you, your collection will become a visual collage of who you are. Everyone starts collecting in a different way.  Some people start by buying things that appeal to them, and then slowly work at acquiring knowledge about how to build a collection.  Others may want to develop some background about art and the artists who have created the work before starting to buy. Collecting art is a personal thing and once you’re bitten by the bug, there’s no going back.  The pleasure from seeing the art you love every day will last a lifetime. When it comes to buying for your collection, it’s easier than ever with the help of the Arts Council’s Own Art interest free credit scheme.  There’s no limit to the number of times you can use the scheme, so you could think about buying one or more pieces each year. Once you’ve taken out your first Own Art loan, it won’t be long before you can start thinking about your next purchase!
