Art & Light Gallery said it best: “We’ve all been there....Too high. Too low.”
When it comes to hanging a new piece of art, or really anything on the wall, it’s essential to get the placement just right. You may have keen eyeballs, but Art & Light Gallery’s tips for hanging art as it’s hung in a traditional gallery or museum style will help you get it right, every time.
First thing’s first: You’ll need the right tools. If you don’t already have a tape measure, hammer, writing utensil, and hanging hardware — head to your local hardware store, like Duncan’s Home Center (1506 Augusta St.).
- Step One: Measure — the height of your art and the frame. Reduce that measurement in half. Pro Tip: Don’t forget to write it down.
- Step Two: Add 60 inches (average eye-level height) to half the height of your piece of art.
