Art can portray the world’s most complex subjects: the passion of love, the horrors of war, and the despair of fruit waiting to be eaten. Restore depictions of nature’s intricacies with today’s Groupon: for $100, you get $200 worth of art-restoration services from the New Orleans Conservation Guild.
Dedicated, skilled restorers from the New Orleans Conservation Guild mend masterpieces, bringing a wealth of experience to the revitalization of damaged artwork. Conservators tend to paintings or frames with meticulous attention and care, neatly bandaging all wounds and kissing boo-boos as needed. Each of New Orleans Conservation Guild's 12 departments focuses on restoring a specific type of art, such as porcelain and ceramics, gilding, wooden artifacts, or antique frames, ensuring that specialists can meet the needs of each project. Several members of the Guild are assigned to each piece in order to properly document, handle, store, and write love sonnets to it while repairing water damage, previously botched restorations, tears, and punctures. Pricing is based on consultation and the Guild must examine an object in person before giving a firm estimate for a project, but will consult via email if needed.
