PAYMENT METHODS
We 
can process your credit card details easily and quickly, however please do call us (+613 9654 3332) with your information - do not send it via email. We accept Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
We also accept cheques or payment by direct deposit into the gallery account. We provide international clients with a SWIFT code to make this a simple process. 

PLEASE NOTE: Our artists have worked hard at their practice and have attained a quality and demand for their artwork which is reflected in their pricing. We do not accept offers on artworks, nor do we discount works.

LAYBY

We offer an in-gallery layby scheme which requires a 20% deposit, and then regular payments over 3 months. We may be able to extend the payment period to 6 months for selected larger purchases - please contact the Gallery Director to discuss.

ART MONEY INITIATIVE

Art Money makes owning art immediate and affordable. Interest free loans are available for artworks priced from $675 to $50,000. After paying a 10% deposit, you can take your artwork home and then pay the remaining balance over 9 months interest free. 
Apply online for instant approval, take your art home and pay for it later. 

If you would like to use Artmoney please consult FLG prior. There are exceptions to the use of Artmoney including artworks from aboriginal communities, and some contemporary FLG artists. The approval for the use of Artmoney for an artwork is at the Gallery's discretion. For more information about applying for an Art Money loan visit www.artmoney.com.au

  

CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
When purchasing an artwork you will also receive an official receipt of purchase, an artist statement and biography, the artist's curriculum vitae and material from that artist's exhibition if you have purchased a work from a current show. If you purchase a work by one of the Indigenous Artists that we represent their artwork also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from their Community depicting an image of the artwork, the story of the Dreaming that they have illustrated. This certificate is stamped and signed by a member of the Arts Centre for which they are affiliated.
Please retain this paperwork as these documents form the Provenance of the artwork, proving that the artwork was bought by you from our gallery, with the full artwork and artist details. 
 
OUT ON APPROVAL
Sometimes it's hard to envisage exactly what an artwork will look like at home while you are viewing it in the gallery space. We offer an out on approval service that allows you to take an artwork home overnight or for the weekend, to gain a feel for the work within your home and discuss it with members of your family. There is no obligation to buy, however delivery charges apply. The standard delivery charge is $90 each way, and of course if you choose to purchase the artwork then it remains in your possession. Please call the gallery to discuss this option further.
 
FREIGHT
All artworks are packed with great care and safely freighted both within Australia and overseas. Our gallery’s complimentary insurance covers all artworks from the moment they leave the gallery until they reach your front door wherever in the world they may be travelling to. If you reside in Melbourne, we can also arrange for your artwork to be professionally installed for you. Local costs are $80 +GST per hour. We also have contacts for art installers in Sydney that we'd be happy to pass on to our Sydney-based clients.
