When it comes to hanging art on my wall, I personally like to just go with what looks right to me.  Then again, I am an artist so that may be a little easier to do than for others.  So with that in mind, I’ve found a few short, visual, and helpful articles online to give you some help on how to hang your art, where to hang it, how to arrange it with other art, and how to light it.  The visuals alone are great ideas.
