  • Effectively Showcase Art With An Art Hanging System

    Hanging a piece of art can be a huge difference maker and the thing that adds that personal touch to a room or entire area. You can tell a great deal about the occupants of space and their personal tastes by the type of art that has been placed on the walls. However, values change, tastes change, and financial status changes. The only thing that will remain the same is the actual artwork.

    However, the simple act of changing art or positioning it in a new direction can significantly damage the walls that are used to hang the art. If you are constantly hammering nails into the wall, it can lead to significant damage, patched walls, and the repainting of walls. This can be greatly inefficient and it is not something you will be able to sustain. Sometimes the damage that is caused by your walls cannot be repaired. However, you do not have to continue going in this direction.

    Instead of using drills or hammers to hang artwork onto your walls, you can use an art hanging system to hang your artwork without using nails or other tools. Art hanging systems will typically consist of a track mount, a rod or cable, and a fitting or hook that will connect your artwork into place. You will have a solution that will allow you to hang art and make endless arrangements without causing any damage to your walls.

    At Systematic Art, we have the products that will be beneficial to anyone who wants to hang one or multiple pieces of artwork. Regardless of your needs and the type of artwork you want to hang, you can make sure you showcase the artwork very well. If you want to know how our products can be beneficial to you, please do not hesitate to contact us today for more information. 

  • Use Hanging Art Walls to Break Up Your Open Office Space

    Open offices and coworking spaces are the new trends, and there's no sign of offices turning back to bulky cubicles any time soon. Property owners benefit because minimalism is easy to maintain, and business owners often appreciate the ability to customize the space and fit more employees onto a floor with a smaller square footage. But sometimes that large open room filled with tens of employees can be daunting or overwhelming. Finding ways to break up the space — even without permanent fixtures and walls — can make the employees happier and more productive.

    Subdivide the general space with grid "walls" of hanging art.

    As modern as contemporary office spaces might be, they still have a "fishbowl" effect that many employees don't like. The feeling of being watched can be even worse when it seems like everyone can watch everyone else. Break up the space with hanging art hardware. These cables can run from the floor to the ceiling and hold a grid of artwork that separates departments or even just breaks the space in half.

    Make clear offices a little more opaque with hanging art.

    Even minimalist offices need to have smaller, relatively sound-proofed offices inside. Clear glass walls can make these tiny cubbies feel less claustrophobic, but that can also make people feel like they're on display when they're inside. Hang artwork or stained glass panels to create a curtained effect without losing the chic look.

    Improve security around the front lobby.

    Just like smaller, private offices, the glass walls around the front lobby of your office might be letting too many prying eyes in. That can be bad news if unverified visitors catch a glance of something confidential. Separate the lobby and the main office with hanging art that blocks casual sight without making the receptionist feel cut off from the rest of the team.

    Go to Systematic Art for all of the hardware to customize your office without leaving a dent in your deposit.

  • Hang Your Artwork Freely With Picture Rails

    When it is time for you to decorate your walls with your favorite pieces of art there are more accessible ways for you to hang your favorite art pieces. If you want to have more creative control of your art hanging technique, we encourage you to use picture rails so you can have easier access to hanging and removing the artwork. A picture rail will also give you a tool that can help you create the perfect vision for your wall.

    At Systematic Art, our picture rails are a piece of molding that you can place on your wall. Our rails will not be complex or unmanageable to the room you choose to place it in. You will be able to choose a different type of rail based on your artistic desires and choices. The picture rail can have multiple mounting options, including a mount for the wall and a mount for the ceiling. You will be able to hang any piece of art from the picture rails through the use of ropes or wires. You will not have to worry about the picture rails getting in the way of anything in your home. 

    Our picture rails are easy to install and they look professional with their creative and unique design. We have the picture rails that will allow you to hang your frames and align them perfectly each time. You will no longer have to be frustrated with the hanging and aligning process that you have experienced in the past. You will be able to change the artwork whenever you want without worrying about causing any damage to your walls.

    Do you want more control over your art hanging process? Do you want your art hanging process to be fun and exciting again? Contact us today to find out more about our picture rails. 

  • Acrylic Card Holders: Labeling Your Art Safely And Clearly

        We all know that, for the true art-lover, the card of information next to the art piece is every bit as important as the art itself. It provides context for the work, and it can inform us about how we might create art ourselves. Fortunately, there are excellent card holders that will hold the signage necessary to appease the art-lover. Here are three reasons acrylic card holders belong on your displays.

    Double-Sided Tape Preserves Walls

        Card holders have to be attached to something in order to do their job, but anyone who has had to change displays more than once can tell you that this leaves the unsightly holes if you have to screw them in. Fortunately, acrylic card holders come with double-sided tape. You can tape them on any non-porous surface in whatever orientation works for you. 

        Double-sided tape also spares you from worrying about screwing your card into a load bearing beam, or that your sheetrock wall will crumble away from your signage. Every wall has a weak spot and places that have been patched over a few too many times, and light acrylic card holders applied with double-sided tape are gentle on these areas.

    The Right Size To Convey The Message

        The cards come in 6"x4" and 4"x2", which allows you enough room to print everything truly relevant without taking over the wall. You won't have to use size 8 font to squeeze in everything that you need to know, nor will you be forced to skip crucial details about the artist's technique.

    Easy To Change Signs

        Museums change exhibits regularly, and even offices have to switch out information occasionally. It's all about keeping it fresh and interesting for the people who come in often. However, changing the signs to go with it can be a pain. You can easily slide it into place if you are using a gallery rail system or similar art hanging system, but the sign with the artist's bio must be adjusted to the new position so everyone can intuit which art piece goes with which bio. Plus, you will likely have to write up the information yourself and make sure that you have a succinct description without errors. That's a lot of work, and having a holder on hand that you can simply slip your new card into when you are done makes your life easier. 

        Systematic Art understands that your signage for your art is as important as your displays. If you would like to see more signage solutions for your displays, contact us.
