The Keys to Making a Gallery Wall Look Timeless (Not Trendy)

2018-05-09_10-43-45

Gallery walls have been going strong for a while now in home design. That’s probably because they’re the perfect solution for filling up blank wall space—until, well, they’re not. If we are being honest, gallery walls are actually pretty difficult to pull off. Sure, it’s your home and ultimately anything goes. But haven’t we all seen a gallery wall or two that’s awkward, either in terms of the spacing or placement of pieces, frame selection, or heck, even the amount (and style) of items? A gallery wall should really always be a work in progress—something that continues to grow until it reaches the state of being potentially wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor salon style for maximum impact. A small cluster of random artwork on a wall feels too try-hard, right? But I guess you’ve got to start somewhere and acquire works that mean something to you over time. So as you go about that process, let’s take a look at some fully “mature” salon walls that get it right and figure out why.

HAIR

The award-winning Wagner College Theatre, as part of its 50th Anniversary Season, is proud to present the great American rock musical HAIR!

Featuring a timeless score by Staten Island’s own Galt MacDermot, with book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, Wagner’s HAIR is directed by Broadway veteran Darren Lee (National Tour The King and I) with music direction by David Sisco (WCT’s La Cage aux Folles).

HAIR celebrates the 50th anniversary of its Broadway premiere and the Sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, and fringed glory. To an infectiously energetic rock beat the show features popular anthems like “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In,” “Good Morning, Starshine” and the title anthem. HAIR reminds us of such ideals as peace, love, and acceptance — and what it means to be young and believe you can change the world.

HAIR features Kevin Atwater (Claude), John Drinkwater (Berger), Sophia Tzougros (Sheila), Bailey Claffey (Ronny), Sabrina Kalman (Jeanie), Hadly Patterson (Crissy), Tyler Ross (Hud), Remy Barson (Margaret Mead), Travis Harley (Dionne) and members of The Tribe – Miranda AbbottJamie Baio,Gabby BakerSavannah BeckfordMargot BergeronErin DamersDavid DinesCassandra DoughertyMatthew DrinkwaterKimmy FriedmanScott HokeDana KluczykKyra Denise LeeDeVonté MccrayAnne Elizabeth MieleRyan MoroneyBen MurassoCynedra OsinaikeKristine PalkaTroy Rood, and Garrett Toole.
