CONSULTATION + RATES


We provide individualized consultation to institutions and collectors for the proper exhibition, storage, handling, treatment, and analysis of art objects.  Please contact us to make an appointment. If you have already made an appointment, please see our guidelines on packing your art for your consultation. 

We offer a free consultation at our Center where one of our skilled conservators will meet with you to discuss the care of your artwork. Should examination and treatment be recommended, we will ask you to leave your artwork for an in-depth examination. After your art work is thoroughly examined, we will give you a report documenting the object’s condition and a proposal for treatment.
