AppraisalsInformation on your artwork is sometimes just as important as the piece itself. We can research your work of art to
determine provenance, value and significance. Valuations can be made for insurance, donation, current fair market
value and estate value. We can catalogue your collection, prepare reports for your reference and handle loss
claims with insurance companies. FramingWe frame in-house using modestly priced, high quality framing materials. We can help you update your old
frames or choose a frame that will accent your important documents and works of art. Too busy to hand your art?
Don't know where everything should go? Let us do it for you! Ask about our house and office visits. ConservationSometimes all a painting needs is a little cleaning. We can repair damaged works and provide preventative
maintenance tips for works in all media including sculpture, oils, acrylics, watercolours, works on canvas,
wood and paper. We work with insurance adjusters and restoration companies too!

The series explores topics related to the art market including art valuation, insurance, conservation, framing,
corporate collectiongs, history and philosophy of art making. Public seminars are given once a month.
Seminars can also be booked for private functions. A gallery talk is an excellent customer appreciation
activity or fundraising event.
Corporate GiftsInuit sculpture makes an impressive gift for employees, clients and international partners. The art form is
recognizably Canadian connoting a sense of the culture, history, and natural beauty of this land. We provide
expert advice on how to choose a piece and our prices reflect every budget. Ask about international shipping,
gift wrapping and custom plaques.
ConsultingA well planned collection is a strong investment. We can review the works in your collection to identify themes of
style, period, content, artist etc. We can recommend ways of strengthening your collection and give direction for
future acquisition. We have arranged several commissions from our artists for clients who desire particular pieces to
commemorate achievements or special events.
DispositionWe can arrange for sale of work privately through the gallery, through major auction houses and through donations to
institutions as long terms loans.
