Fine Art Installation Considerations for Indoors and Outdoors

Fine Art Installation Considerations for Indoors and OutdoorsThe world of fine art installation is a far step away from the days of hammering a nail into the wall and praying for the best. Professional services can install even the heaviest and most complex pieces with the security to withstand adverse conditions alongside the beauty to intrigue viewers.

Art Work Fine Art Services has a team of professional art installers that can handle any art installation project. Whether you need a single piece installed on a stand in a private residence, or need to install large pieces several stories tall, our expert handlers can create the ideal strategy for your needs and execute the plan thoroughly and with excellence.

What Type of Fine Art Installation Projects can Art Work FAS Handle?

Even “simple” projects need an expert hand to ensure that art remains secure and displayed in the best conditions. Whether you need to install a single piece or an entire collection, consult specialists to get the most for your valuable artwork.

Private Homes and Residences

Hanging art in a home or private residence is more complex than simply drilling a hole in the wall. Professional installers can secure artwork, ensuring that it remains intact, even in the event of an earthquake, shaking, or additional adverse events that can affect your home.

Because of the close quarters involved in private homes, a diligent installation team must champion assiduity when handling pieces in such spaces. Professional art installers like the experts at Art Work Fine Art Services can get heavy and cumbersome artwork down small hallways or up floors using cranes, rigging, and specialized equipment — all without damage to the artwork or the home.

Galleries and Museums

Art Work Fine Art Services can install paintings, installation pieces, sculptures, artifacts, and more with special consideration for the importance of space and the viewing experience. “We’ve worked with many of the most highly respected museums and galleries in the Pacific Northwest and across the country,” says Acacia Philips, President at Art Work Fine Art Services. “Our partners trust us to handle their collection with as much concern as they would.” Whether installing a single piece or a collection, we elevate artwork to a whole new level.

Public, Corporate, and University Buildings

For us, art installation is in itself an art when we consider the importance of implementing new pieces without disrupting the everyday flow of our client’s corporations, university buildings, and public spaces. “The best installation job is one that is done with the same amount of diligence and grace as the pieces were built with,” says Collections Manager Nathan Inwood. Our strategies are professional and concise, meaning that your toughest project is handled with the highest quality of care.
