The Arts Council of Wales' Collectorplan scheme makes buying contemporary works of art more affordable by providing interest-free loans to purchase contemporary art and craft in Wales.
Loans are available for sums up to £2000 with repayment lengths of up to 15 months - all for a deposit of as little as 10%.
A simple example for Mike Jones' 'Man With Buckets' shown above would be:
Picture price £650
- Deposit of £65
= 10 monthly repayments of £58.50 (interest free)
Total repayment = £650

This exhibition of paintings, hand-signed etchings and reproduction prints gives collectors a unique opportunity to purchase some of the last pieces from the Valerie Ganz estate.
Valerie Ganz was born in Swansea and attended Swansea College of Art and studied painting, sculpture and stained glass. She remained as a tutor until 1973 when she turned her attention to painting full time.
As her interest in the landscape of South Wales grew, her attention was drawn to the landscape of industrial areas and, in particular, the mining industry. Over a period of many years, she worked at fourteen different collieries including a 12-month secondment to Six Bells in Abertillery where she took a house and studio. She was also commissioned by the National Coal Board which led to her working at three open cast mines for another year. Valerie’s interest in people and their lives wasn’t restricted to those of the coal industry though. She also spent a year in London at the Central School of Ballet, travelled to New Orleans to paint jazz musicians, visited Patagonia and painted workers on the desert oil rigs, documented the lives of in-mates at Swansea Prison and immersed herself in the Swansea nightclub scene; all of these passions culminating in hugely successful exhibitions in London and South Wales.
