Collection Consulting
Our specialists are available to help you manage your collections no matter what stage of collecting you're in, or size of your collection. We will provide you with guidance on market and art trends, today’s values and tomorrow’s growth potential.

Inventory / Cataloguing / Photography
We can provide an appraised inventory of your collection, in digital format and/or a colour-printed publication.

Research / Authentication
As any experienced collector knows, authentication and establishing provenance are a vital aspect of collecting; particularly important prior to either buying or selling a work. We have the expertise to assist you.

Conservation / Restoration
Maintaining your pieces in good condition, repairing accidental damage, or restoring a recent addition to your collection is an integral part of proper collection management. We can provide the guidance you need.

Framing
The proper framing and placement of your art piece will enhance its impact and aesthetic, as well as provide protection in high traffic areas, and from potentially harmful elements such as sunlight, humidity, etc.

Installation
The hanging and/or installing of your art piece's are an important aspect to displaying your collection for both its aesthetic impact and security.

Shipping / Storage
We can arrange to safely move your pieces to a new location or securely store them here in Toronto.
