With expert care and attention, Carspecken Scott Gallery provides a wide variety of art restoration services. From original works on canvas to paper, mixed media, etchings and giclees, we pride ourselves in returning your artwork to its near original form.
We offer a free, no obligation consultation of your artwork and all of our restoration work is fully guaranteed.
Fingermarks from the most handled areas during framing, shipping and handling can be removed. Yellowing due to exposure to ultra violet light, age and acidification is also addressed. Further, common surface scratches and cracking can be gently buffed away and varnish residue can be removed prior to a new varnish coating.
Many people do not realize that artwork exposed to humid areas, such as beach front properties, can become damaged by moisture and mold. By the use of various chemicals and drying techniques, we can repair artwork with these types of issues.

Carspecken Scott is proud to announce that it is now an authorized dealer of the finest line of art lighting available in the United States -- Academy Light.
Now, for a surprisingly reasonable cost, you can have the same lighting that The Frick Collection in New York chose to display its works. Academy Light relies on low-voltage tungsten-halogen lamps to deliver optimum color rendering through the use of patented reflectors with soft-edged beams. The distribution of light over the painting’s surface can be fine-tuned with various rotations and permutations in each fixture, which protects those who view the painting from glare.
The Academy Light is unrivalled by other seemingly similar fixtures due to its
technologically advanced, low-voltage picture lights that provide an
unsurpassed level of high performance. Why? The miniature, tungsten halogen lamps (bulbs) are powered at only 12 volts and have the distinct advantage of rendering true colors, having been designed to allow the use of both capsule lamps
for smaller artwork and dichroic (MR11) lamps for larger artwork.
