I wish I had more wall space. I would buy that piece of art.
If I could buy a bigger home, I could buy more art.
The artwork doesn't fit into the specific wall space I am looking to fill. It is too big (or too small)
You Can Never Have Too Much Art!
Just ask the Vogels. A couple in N.Y. who started collecting decades ago. This post office clerk and wife librarian amassed one of the largest contemporary art collections of approximately 5000 pieces while living in their 1 bedroom N.Y. flat! Not typical of what we would consider as 'art collectors' they are now world renowned and their collection is valued in the multi-millions. They did not use the excuse, 'we have nowhere to put this' and with their passion for art and keen eyes have made themselves one helluva collection all the while enjoying many art shows, the thrill of discovering emerging artists and surrounding themselves with what they loved.
So now that you realize you CAN buy more art that makes your heart sing, how can you capitalize on showing it all?
Here are 10 ways to show off MORE of your artwork:
1) Wall groupings.
Random for the eclectic feel or choose similar frames & symmetry if you prefer a streamline esthetic.
It can act as a room divider or be placed on castors for maneuverability.
Change your art every season. Your dinner guests will always be curious to see what you have in store when they visit for dinner.

Personalize your cubicle or office space. You spend most of you time there, don't you?
You visit often.
You both win.
A covered verhandah, cabana or covered terrace have wall spaces underutilized.
This wall can use some love. Share the joy.
Doing laundry just got better.
Why not open a Main St. gallery? Of course, this is my favourite choice.
