Gallery wall

The vintage oil paintings on our gallery wall vary from Canadian shorelines to Caribbean beaches to seaborne ships, but we’ve stuck to a coastal theme, allowing ourselves to play with different hanging options. 1 Clip art Hang a painting sans frame using a wall-mounted clip like this one from Lee Valley Tools. 2 As is For an extra time-worn element, leave one vintage find in its original frame – the more weathered, the better. 3 Floater Play with negative space by appending an oversized frame around a hanging unframed piece. 4 Strapping macrame Plait or knot some cotton rope into a strap for suspending your art.
