Hanging Art – Tips and Tricks

Hanging Art Tips

For those of you now busily planning your trip to Artexpo, here are a few art hanging tips to keep in mind as you visualize the layout of your booth (it’s never too early to start).

Center your works when hanging. The center of each work should be hung at eye level (average height is 5’6” – 5’9”).

Re-adjust lighting, clean the frames and glass, and use a level to ensure the straightness of every work.

Hanging Your Booth

  • As Andy Warhol said “less is more.” In the scenario below, you’ll see pieces hung in one simple line, making it very easy to view each piece separately or by taking a few steps back as a 5-piece set.
