We are calling artists to participate and share their artistic perspectives and interpretations of the concept of portals, whether literal or metaphorical.

Preparing your artwork for hanging

D-rings are the most popular option for hanging mounted or framed works. Two d-rings are attached to the back of the frame or mount with a wire tied between.

D-rings should be positioned one-third of the way down the frame or canvas

How to Wire

  • Slide the end of the picture hanging wire through one of the D-rings.
  • Securely knot the end of the wire on the D-ring.
  • Twist another inch of the excess wire up the rest of the wire.
  • Cut off the excess wire with a wire cutting tool.
