Cleaning artwork in Canberra?

By Padoof - 5 August 2012 4

Does anyone know where I can get some paintings professionally cleaned and/or repaired?

I have inherited some artwork from an artist great aunty; she was a heavy smoker so the oil paintings are in need for a good clean.  The watercolours, which are in glass frames, seem to have some some water damage underneath.

I’d love to get the tidied up – any suggestions of reputable businesses appreciated?

Thanks in advance.

Art and Archival in Queanbeyan. The major art holders in Canberra use them for good reason.

They have cleaned and brought back to life two badly aged lithographs (100 + years old) that had begun to show foxing, and a delicate paper work from WW11. All beautifully done at what I thought was a good price for the services they provided.

Dont be in a rush as cleaning and conservation takes time.

Try a bloke called Steve Pratt. He’s gained some attention in the past for his cleaning skills.

A friend of mine had a painting restored at the Aarwun Gallery out at Gold Creek a few years ago. Wasn’t cheap, but they did a great job with it.
