Hanging Your Work In Our Galleries

Walker Display French Cleat

Both the City Gallery and Augusta & Co. Gallery use the Walker Display Rod-Rail hanging system (pictured at left). Many local galleries utilize this system, as it has minimal damage to walls and is historic building friendly. For more information on this system, please visit . To learn about what methods work best for hanging on this system, check out this site.


We encourage all artists interested in displaying work in our galleries to research this display method, as several types of store-bought frames are not designed to hang from this type of system.


You can also read Gallery Director Heather Dunaway’s Blog, the Word, for tips on how to properly frame, wire and hang your work.
