Art Restoration & Conservation
Ethnographic, Classical &
Contemporary Art Objects
Whole Arts Restoration & Conservation (WARC) specializes in the repair and preservation of art and antiquities from Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and the Americas.
Our staff is experienced in working on ceramics, wood, ivory, shell, stone, metals and much more.
Using a combination of technical processes and high quality materials, we consolidate fragile and flaking surfaces, carve and if necessary rebuild and recreate missing and/or damaged areas. We specialize in gluing severely broken objects. the restored areas can then be in-painted to replicate the original patina or polychrome surface.
Arrangements can also be made for on-location services of monumental, overall fragile or permanently installed works.
Through our network of affiliates, we offer options for custom mounting, bases and displays.
Whole Arts serves both the small collector, dealer and organization as well as larger institutions and museum collections.
