Getting the hang of it ...

Hanging artwork can be tricky. Generally, my attempts leave more holes in the wall than art hanging on it. That's when a gallery wall makes hanging so much easier.

While there still needs to be some degree of placement planning, gallery walls offer freedom from a totally symmetrical aesthetic.

That's a boon to those who have 'nail' phobia. The other great thing about creating gallery walls is the freedom to ignore 'eye-level' hanging constraints. Who made that rule, anyway?

I love the unexpected art hung down to the floor, off-center placements behind other accessories or layered with multiple framed works.

I'm also intrigued by temporary galleries, whether leaning on slender shelves or hung from uber convenient clipboards.

I have so much artwork stored, that I must get serious about hanging more pieces.

Love this room's simple style and neutral canvas. A clean, crisp backdrop for art.
