Gallery Goodness

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good gallery wall.  As a former art gallery manager and curator I have a pretty good eye for how to put them together both composition wise and spatially on the wall but some people just aren’t sure how to even begin this process.  I can’t tell you how many clients I’ve hung gallery walls for! Fot me it’s like a brilliant puzzle- combining sizes, mediums, color and frame styles into one cohesive group.  While I trend towards the “hand me that hammer let’s do this” school of haning, most people painstakingly measure out each frame placement and get frustrated.  Others aren’t sure what pieces make up a good gallery wall and aren’t sure about framing. Enter the brilliant Lost Art Salon in San Francisco, as featured in this month’s Town & Country.  Not only do they have a fabulous selection of art in the $350- $800 price point, they also are masters of curating gallery walls and will do it for you- from picking the pieces to hanging them in your home. Such a great idea for an art gallery, no? Just want some tips, click here for their free downloadable guide to hanging art!

I’m off for breakfast with Margaret Russell at Architectural Digest and then the McQueen exhibit at the Met! A fun last day at Blogfest!
