10 Awesome Gallery Walls We Found On Instagram

For anyone slightly nervous about hanging art incorrectly, gallery-style is the answer.

Oil paintings can stay in their own clique or socialize with photographs, watercolor prints, even clocks.
Ahead, we found a variety of traditional, zany, and colorful methods to get you inspired for your own art transformation this weekend. And, if you're still feeling a bit unsure, check out our video tutorial with NYC gallery owner Bill Powers. Get to it. The sky's ceilings's the limit.
