In this next demonstration, I'm going to show you techniques for hanging your art on either…drywall or wood paneling.…You use the same set of hangers and tools to accomplish it on either surface.…The work we're going to hang for the demonstration are two pieces by Kevin Bubriski from his…series of Portrait of Nepal.…The first one we already have on the wall here, the second one is going to go in this space here.…The pieces are both gelatin silver prints, and the frames are matching frames of black…wood with a slight relief to them.…
We chose a large white mat to play off the black and white.…We're keeping it real simple.…We wanted the extra width of the mat to generate a sense of scale.…The black frames that are identical unify the works, and will make them work well together.…The first step is to measure the space that we have to work with.…So we're going to start at the edge of the wall we have already hung and measure from…the side of that frame to the molding on the door here.…Notice how the tape measure stays rigid through this whole span. This is one of the advantages…
The course begins with an overview of framing concepts, terms, and tools and then shows how to choose and work with the various components of a framed print: matboard, frame, glazing, wire hangers, and more. The course also examines the issues and creative options behind hanging an exhibit, whether in a gallery or in a home.
