All succesful treatments begin during the consultation. Our clients take part in the restoration process by providing valuable information about the history of the piece. A strong relationship with each of our clients guarantees that our clients' expectations are not only met but exceeded.
Restoration consultations are free of charge. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.
CAN RESTORATION COSTS BE QUOTED FROM PHOTOGRAPHS?
It is always in the best interest of the client to bring in the object to be repaired for examination. Restoration estimates will not be quoted over the phone or via email. Digital photographs hide valuable information; only under very unique circumstances will they be used in place of a physical examination.
DOES HFA OFFER CUSTOM FRAMING?
No. Hollingsworth Fine Arts is not a custom frame house. However, you can find a list of local frame houses that we refer our clients to on our Affiliates page.
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
DOES HFA PROVIDE CONDITION REPORTS?

WHAT IF I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE TRANSPORTING MY PAINTING?
Please ask us about in-home consultations, local pick-up, and shipping options.
WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT POLICIES?
Hollingsworth Fine Arts accepts all major credit cards as well as personal checks. Generally, payment is collected upon completion of the treatment although deposits are requested under certain circumstances.
