SHOWTIME | PLAYING HANGMAN

My show at Laguna Inkspot Gallery comprises nineteen pieces in ten different sizes. The distance between the floor and the center of each piece is 57 inches, so the top of a 30 inch piece is 72 inches above the floor (57 + (30/2)), easy right? But then the wires attaching each of the works are at different heights, even for two works of the same size (one wire might hold a work at 7.25 inches from the top of the frame, another at 7.5 inches from the top). Height of nail equals 1/2 height of artwork minus distance from top of frame to wire plus 57 inches. Then they need to be centered on the wall. When this show’s all finished and done I’ll post a list of what I would do if I were starting over, no big mistakes but could have made things easier for myself.
