Located in Philadelphia's historic Fairmount neighborhood, just 2 blocks from the world renowned Barnes Foundation, the Conservation Studio for Art has devoted itself to preserving the artistic and cultural heritage of the greater northeast for over a quarter century.  Guided by European trained founder and head conservator Matthew Szczepanowski, we are experts in both old world and modern world techniques, combining both approaches to preserve as much original material as possible.  Our reputation is well established, having worked with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the CIty of Philadelphia, the University of Pennsylvania, hundreds of houses of worship across faith and states, and countless private collectors.  We believe it to be our civic duty to preserve beautiful objects of our past, and this passion manifests itself in painstaking attention to detail.  As a small business, we pride ourselves in keeping open lines of communication with all invested parties, be they owner or insurance adjuster.  Feel free to contact us with any conservation needs or questions.  We look forward to hearing from you.
