We are currently in the process of revising our criteria for the Own Art scheme and are not accepting applications for new galleries ontot our scheme. We will be advising shortly when we will be reopening the scheme to new galleries.
When a gallery becomes a member of Own Art it will be listed with all member galleries on the Own Art pages of the Scottish Arts Council's website.
Member galleries will also be expected to promote Own Art through their own marketing material. The Own Art logo can be downloaded for this purpose.
If you are a member of the scheme, you can download the logo here. It is extremely important that you read the Visual Identity guidelines which explain how the brand must be used.

Own Art is promoted on a national level in partnership with Arts Council England. Member galleries are expected to include Own Art as part of their own marketing activity.
