About the Event
Hanging art can feel daunting. What looks good where? How high do I hang? Have I got the right tools? Art & People have teamed up with Collins & Green Art to demystify the whole process, making it fun and easy.
The session will begin with tea, coffee and a tour of art dealer Julia Collins’ home - full of exciting examples of how to live at home with art. Once you’re inspired, Art & People founder, Claudia Kennaugh, will walk you through the fundamentals of picture hanging: identifying your style, learning core arrangements, considering the room for practicalities and mood, refreshing your collection and how to address big blank walls. At this point, you’ll be invited to ask questions specific to your own project for feedback and curatorial guidance.
You’ll then watch a demonstration on how to hang a picture in four steps - complete with DIY advice and tricks of the trade. To bring it all together, we will close with an interactive session on designing and hanging a gallery wall, where you can get involved and have a go!
The workshop is open to collectors and trade alike, with any level of experience.
Includes coffee / tea / cake and a handout.
Claudia Kennaugh is the founder of Art & People, a Bristol based art advisory offering guidance to artists and collectors. Prior to launching in 2019, Claudia worked in the arts for 15 years. First as a songwriter and performing artist and then art advisor and gallery partner. Over her years co-running the Hollywood Road Gallery, London – established by her family in 1980 – she curated countless fairs and exhibitions with hand-sourced artworks from the UK, Europe & South America. During this time, she nurtured the careers of many artists and helped the gallery collectors to find, frame and hang art in their homes. Today, Art & People supports the professional development of early-mid career artists with 121 coaching, workshops and tutorials. Claudia’s curating work continues in commercial exhibitions and homes. Her curatorial eye is eagerly sought after and in 2022 she was on the judging panel of Jackson’s Painting Prize.
Art, viewing, buying, selling and collecting, kept me sane during my 15 years in finance. Eventually I left that world to do a Masters in History of Art which I finished just before having my two children. When they went off to University in lockdown I returned to my second passion…art. Art has given me so much pleasure over the years and every wall in my house is covered in pictures, prints, my children’s school art, framed magazine pages, postcards , pictures by friends, and anything which takes my eye. I now work with lots of visitors to the studio in West London, and online, through Instagram and my website, www.collinsandgreenart.co.uk . I am just as happy helping interior designers with big projects, as I am helping individuals with a one-off piece, or their own special project.
