How to Arrange Artwork in an Artful Way

Victoria, a.k.a. sfgirlbybay, is a master at arranging art, and I've been admiring the way she switches things up and makes seemingly disparate pieces work together for years now. I think we should all channel our inner Victorias and give it a shot. If at first you don't succeed, take it all down and try something different.

Before you get started, here are a variety of very different examples of ace art arrangement. Some work because of a white wall, some work because of a peakcock wall. Some work because of perfect symmetry, some work because they completely reject symmetry. Some work because the pieces are all somewhat uniform, some work because the pieces could not possibly differ more. Some work because of traditional picture nails & wire, others work because of binder clips and a piece of string.

We can learn a lot about doing it ourselves by figuring out what makes these work. I'm still trying to study them and figure it out myself! Please let me know in the comments how you approach hanging your artwork.
