Lending conditions

The lending period

You can loan any piece of art for any length of time you want, at a non-interest rate monthly fee. The work can be redeemed at any time or returned to the art lending service, leaving the artist with the monthly payments already made.

The lender will arrange the proper transportation of the artwork and will be liable for any potential damage to the work during the lending period. More about the lending agreement here.

Selling price € Lending fee €/mth

1001 - 1500 60,00
1500 - 2000 80,00
over 2000 set by contract

Purchasing an artwork

If a loaner wants to purchase an artwork, the lending fees already made will be subtracted from the original selling price of the artwork. You can redeem your artwork at any time.

You can also pay the loan installments in greater amounts. The payment amount in the contract is the minimum sum.

Loan payments will be made to Joensuun Taiteilijaseura ry's bank account FI61 4108 0010 3831 34.
