Whether you are an Artist looking to market your artwork or if you have a painting that you bought and wish to sell or have a collection you would like sold properly. Some Artworks benifit from selling through a gallery and online listed with a specific purchase price and others will benifit from selling through an Art Auction. Many times we know the collector that will be the most interested in a specific piece and we can broker a deal to get you exactly what you need fairly quickly. Other times an auction is best if there are several interested parties.

Restoring your artwork back to its original beauty can be easier said than done. Depending on your needs; restoration can be a very difficult process and be quite costly. We have immediate access to our own qualified fine art restorer. If a more complex or sensitive restoration job is required we can have the artwork inspected and restored by one of our specialized restorers within our network. This is definitely a more costly option but depending on the artworks monetary or sentimental value this is a very valuable service.
We also provide professional fine art cleaning for works that are dirty and would benefit being brightened up. This can be a very important key to maintaining quality artwork for generations to enjoy. If an art piece that is dirty is offered for sale through the auction or the gallery; potential buyers are usually extra reserved on purchasing or bidding. This will likely cause the piece to either go unsold or to sell for a much lower value that if the piece was flawless. Please contact us with any questions you may have about these services or to obtain an quote and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
