Exhibition support

Dry cleaning for display

The Grimwade Centre provides exhibition support in the way of:

  • Condition reports with images and notated overlays for travelling exhibitions, loans and auction. Condition reports are important records, used to describe the condition of an object at a point in time and used as a reference from which to track changes.  They can also be used to complete an inventory of all materials and record methods of manufacture.
  • Preparation of items for display such as hinging works of art on paper and archival mounting
  • Superficial cleaning and aesthetic treatment before exhibition
  • Assistance with the installation and deinstallation of exhibition items
  • Preparation of items for travel.  For example: custom-made, padded archival boxes; travel frames and backboards for paintings
