Artlab Australia offers a free community information service on the care and conservation of artworks, historic items and your family treasures. This gives you the opportunity to discuss the condition and care of your item, however large or small, with our specialised conservators.
We can assess paintings, prints, drawings, books, photographs, ceramics, glass or wooden objects, textiles and all forms of decorative arts.
If you would like us to carry out conservation treatment, we can give you an estimate of the costs during this consultation and then book your item in for a formal quotation. One of our expert conservators will then inspect your item in our well equipped laboratories and forward you a quote for your examination.
Alternatively, our conservators are readily available to give you some free advice during the appointment regarding minimising further deterioration with some simple conservation methods and storage solutions.
What happens at a Consultation Day appointment?
The appointment with the conservator is usually for thirty minutes so this gives you ample time to discuss your requirements and any questions you may have about your item. Please note that Artlab does not provide valuations. Appointments are essential.
On what days are the consultations held?
Consultation Days are held on the first and third Thursday of every month throughout the year.
Appointments are from 9.00am to 4.30pm on each half hour. If you are unable to attend a Consultation Day we can arrange an alternative time to suit your needs.
Artlab is located off Kintore Avenue in Adelaide’s city centre. Please enter via Morgan Thomas Lane at the rear of the State Library.
We are situated in the first courtyard on the left. If you look up high you will see the big Artlab sign on the red brick building.
If your item is large we can offer a short term car park just located outside our building. Please advise our receptionist you require a carpark when you book your appointment.
