Can I safely remove painted, dried acrylic paintings from their stretchers for efficient storage?


Can I safely remove painted, dried acrylic paintings from their stretchers and roll them up for efficient storage? If so, is there anything in particular I need to know to keep the paintings safe? I inherited MANY from my dad that I can't part with but don't have room to store, either.

    Thanks, sparkleyufinger! I asked at an art supply shop and they said the same thing you did: a test run and an art restoration place. I'll look into this and report back. Thanks again!

    Anyone else have more/different information?
