The Art of Displaying Art

04Sep12

You might be thinking “I have no art to display”, but you don’t have to possess a great collection of paintings to accomplish a fantastic, eye-catching art wall that is sure to be a conversation starter in your own home. You can display photos, postcards, copies of images you like, magazine pages, and yes, even telephones.

If budget is an issue look at some of the inexpensive examples below that employ binder clips, clipboards, and just plain tape. Look at the image above where twine was used to great effect, another option is cost friendly embroidery hoops containing attractive fabrics.  If you really want framed images head to craft shops where frames can be purchased for under $10. And don’t forget my favorite source, Goodwill Industries. Have the money but not the time? There are many sources for pre-made murals that are ready and easy (so they say) to hang.

Still hope to display original art in your home? Look for local new artists that are trying to get started or at area university art departments to either purchase their existing work or commission them to paint a mural in your home. A number of local artists we feature in our store often have prints made of the originals that are very inexpensive options.

Most importantly, always make sure the subject matter is one that is thought provoking or smile producing to you and your family because the bottom line is the only person you need to impress is yourself.   pb
