Fine Art/Mold

Question
Dear Mr. Klevit:

Thank you for your help. I have one more question to ask. I have a piece of art (on paper) that was damaged in a hurricane by water. The piece is overall in tact but has a small amount of mold. Where/how can I have this repaired? Thanks!

Answer
Jack--you should look for someone who does art restoration.  Should be easy in a big city like Miami.  If none in the yellow pages, perhaps call a museum or the art department of the university.  Paper art can be restored if the damage is not too great, although I am not an expert.  Good luck.  alan.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
