We had so many enquiries about the pictures hanging on the wall in Alex James's house (15 December issue), and the Arts Council's brilliant The Own Art scheme, we've decided to feature them all again! The Arts Council The Own Art Scheme promotes contemporary British art and craft by allowing people to borrow between £100 and £2,000 to buy a piece of art. You then pay back the loan in 10 monthly interest-free instalments. The scheme is available through over 250 galleries across the country and covers paintings, photography, sculpture, glassware and furniture. For more information click here.
