Creating A Unique Ambiance For Your Art GallerySeptember 12th, 2011 | Posted by in Uncategorized
The passion and vocation of the artist is to create a memorable, original, and psychologically charged piece of artwork. It does not matter what medium the artist uses to express their ideas, as long as it has the power to shock; if shock is not the desired aim of the artist, the piece should at least have the strength and gravity to move the viewer is some way. However, art does not end with the artist. How the artwork is hung or placed in the gallery space is just as important as the work itself.
A unique gallery space is supposed to accentuate the art. Curators are like architects or the interior designers of high culture. The way the artwork is arranged on the wall, what type of frame it is put in, and how the room is lit are vital ambiant components to a successful art show. For example, if you are hanging paintings it is important not to overcrowd them; the negative, white space of the room will help the viewer’s eye register the paintings more clearly. Furthermore, the type of frame you put on the artwork can make or break a good gallery show. Keep it minimal.
