Hanging Art

Hanging art work can seem daunting. Apart from the traditional “57” rule”, there are so many different ways to display your art collection. For those of you who are not familiar with this standard, let me briefly explain. The rule of thumb for hanging art is to have the centre of your image, whether it be a large canvas, or a collection of images 57″ from the floor. This generally works, but not always. Nowadays, there are so many other creative options to show off your art: collages in both grid and free-form, leaning and layered, as well as picture rails…. In fact, there seems to be no wrong way…..just make sure you love what you are putting up on your walls!
