Other places to get help

Depending on where you live, you may wish to contact your local public library, state library or state or regional art gallery for help with research enquiries.

If you are looking for a valuer or conservator

The Art Gallery is NOT able to provide appraisals, authentications or valuations of works of art or opinions on their merit, or to give conservation advice to individuals.

You may wish to contact an auction house, such as those listed on the ABC’s Auction Room website or on the Australian and New Zealand Art Sales Digest.

A list of licensed valuers is available on the Australian Government website for the Cultural Gifts Program.

A directory of conservators in private practice is available on the Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Materials (AICCM) website.
