We clean and restore oil paintings on canvas or wood, works on paper such as watercolour paintings and prints, as well repairing sculpture, fine frames, porcelain or fine wooden objects.

As a private gallery with a national focus which specialises in Historic Canadian and European Fine Art, our on-site restoration laboratory allows us to offer full restoration services in the Gallery. Our restorers work on premises and have been trained in Europe and Canada, acting as conservators at both the McMichael Canadian Collection, the National Gallery and the Canadian Conservation Institute in Ottawa.

We prepare written quotations for individuals, corporations, as well as insurance companies wishing to settle claims from flood or fire.

If you own paintings which have become dull and dirty from aged or soiled varnish, have become torn or have lost paint from extremely moist or dry conditions, please contact the gallery to arrange an appointment time. Original Oils and Acrylics on canvas.
