About Us And Our Restoration Services

Whether you need to maximize the profit of an investment grade painting or ensure that your favorite artwork will be preserved in great condition for a long time, New York Art Restorations by Gallery 69 can help. We guarantee museum quality painting restorations executed with careful attention to detail that comes from our innate artistic passion as well as over 15 years of experience in the field of Art Restoration. Our restorers have successfully completed thousands of restorations throughout the lifespan of the gallery, so rest assured that your artwork is in good hands. Our approach is minimally invasive to the artwork. It does not alter the original vision of the artist, it just returns the painting to its natural glory.

We can provide "before" and "after" photos and written documentation as well as prepare appraisals and damage/loss reports for insurance claims. We can also accommodate you with Local pick up and delivery services to make your experience more convenient. We can take care of professional packing and shipping of your artwork as well. The gallery does not restore works on paper such as engravings and prints, but we can refer you to the top paper restoration expert in New York.

Our clients include interior designers and decorators, artists, auction houses, private collectors, art galleries, curators, insurance companies and moving companies. We are available to examine paintings on-site (auction houses, galleries, private residences) or online. The estimate on the artwork brought into the gallery is given at no charge. On location inspections and proposals are prepared for a fee. We require 50% down-payment before restoration work begins. We accept payments in cash, all major credit cards, PayPal and checks (subject to clear).
