How to Hang Art Gallery Style

Hanging art in a gallery style requires that the pieces be hung next to each other. However, if you have multiple pieces on the same wall, you may encounter difficulties with spacing them appropriately. Usually, you should space each piece a minimum of two inches apart. It is best to make sure that the artworks are connected to each other. If you are unsure of how to hang an artwork, you can check out these tips to make sure that you get the proper look for your home.

First, you need to establish the layout of your gallery wall. Trace around the pieces of art you want to display. Cut out the shapes and mark where the hangers should be placed. Then, use painters tape to attach the cutouts to the wall. You can also draw a grid on the wall to determine the exact location of the nails. You can then place the cutouts on the wall. Then, use a pencil to draw a line on the wall and use it as a guideline.

The first step is to measure the distance between the two biggest pieces. You can either measure the lengths of each piece to ensure that the two are aligned. If you don't have the patience to measure each piece, you can wing it. Another option is to use a giant paper template and nail each frame to it. This method is best for smaller pieces of art. You can use toothpaste to test out the spacing between each frame.
