We apologise for this disruption to our service but look forward to assisting you in person and remotely in our new premises.
No reference enquiries by phone or online
From 7 November 2020 to 31 August 2021

If you are looking for a valuer or conservator
The 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.
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.
