 There is an art to hanging groups of artwork correctly.  If you're every having trouble and I'm not available to dash over and help use these photos as a guide!

  1. That setup in the third photo looks amazing and it's probably the easiest in the entire bunch. Pulling this off successfully is incredibly difficult.

  2. i'm a patient person. you don't even have to dash over, just saunter and bring your talents. no doubt chicago in winter is on your radar?!

  3. Back when dinosaurs were pups I taught yearbook because I was the journalism teacher. Great training for understanding the power of the grid, seeing the optical center is about 1" above technical center, the 2/3-1/3 beauty, the use of negative space and interior margins. Knowledge is not always power. Hence, the many nail holes hidden behind what appears to be a perfect grid. Sigh......

  4. hi randy,

    i think the most successful gallery-type walls are ones that are created slowly over time. i'm not a big lover of the boxed set type gallery wall. i prefer the ones that look like a person bought a piece of art and came home and hung it and just kept adding to it over the years. i love that look. it's not so contrived. but what do i know?
