One of the aspects of doing art festivals that I used to enjoy is the interaction that I had with customers in my booth. People would come in and smile and admire my paintings and try to visualize where they would put one of my works in their home. Unfortunatley, I didn't always get the sale, because one of the barriers to purchase was the customer's issue with where they would hang it.
How to hang art Salon Style
I often suggested hanging salon style like I do in my own home, which creates a kind of artwork in itself with a collection of paintings. Another suggestion that I had was to swap the artwork out, relegating some paintings to a closet or different room for a period of time, thus creating a personal rotating art show.
A percieved lack of space is no reason to stop buying art. We all walk around in the same body all of our lives but we don't stop buying clothes to put on it. (I know, different animal, but you get the point :0)

It's the same for your walls. There are lots of ways to dress and rearrange them to keep them attractive and interesting to yourself and all who enter your home.

Do you own a lot of artwork? How about pottery? Do you have fun or intersting ways that you diplay yours? Please share!
