In August I had one of the larger walls. Of course its above the high counter with all the miniture paintings and a slanted ceiling. Because it was the last month of summer, I decided to hang paintings of beaches, boats and kids playing in the water.
You can see this is a hard wall to hang.
You have to move all the miniatures first then crawl on the counter.
Hanging Art Shows
Hanging is an art in itself and I'm still learning. It is something to be planned, like the composition of your painting. To learn, I volunteer to help other artists hang shows hoping to pick up pointers. Whether its hanging your own paintings or a huge show with multiple artists the principles are the same. You have to consider what looks best. Are you grouping by a theme, subject matter, color, size, shape or sometimes types or colors of frames? Once you start grouping, is it pleasing to the eye? Its sometimes easier when hanging on a large wall to lay the paintings out on the floor so you can easily move paintings around. Do you want to stagger the heights of the frames or (try) hang them straight across the top? The general rule of thumb is the center of the work should be about 5 feet from the ground so its pleasing for people of all heights. So many things to consider.
