The Highlanes Gallery is unable to give valuations of works of art - a reputable dealer or auction house should be able to help. The National Gallery of Ireland (NGI) appraise paintings, prints and drawings in a free clinic run by NGI Curators brought into the NGI’s Shaw Room by members of the public on the first Thursday of each month, (except August and January) 10:00 - 12:00.
