An example of a French cleat hanging system used in a gallery context, Jessica Loughlin's an ever changing constant (white)

French cleat hanging systems create a "floating" effect as with this 2013 Jessica Loughlin piece, an ever changing constant (white).

In our last video lesson, Attaching French Cleats, we gave you some instructions for displaying glass panel artwork with a hanging system we particularly like.  French cleats are discreet and sturdy, and give your art the appearance of floating in front of a wall.  But hanging your artwork with a French cleat is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. There are different sizes of French cleats and considerations should be made based on the surface area and weight of your artwork.
