Some tips on properly hanging artwork include spacing multiple pictures 2 inches apart and an individual picture 60 inches from the ground, using two weight-appropriate hooks for stability and levelness, utilizing a level and ruler for proper placement and planning the layout before hanging. Having more than one person when hanging artwork is beneficial, especially for large, heavy or awkward art.
Planning the placement of artwork is vital to a pleasing artwork display. With multiple pieces, using a grid-like formation with symmetrical balancing is ideal, although asymmetrical or odd-sized pieces can also work on a gallery wall. Deviation from a consistently square display adds interest and character.
