Not sure how big the space is or what length of wall you have or what size your pieces are but put your best work at eye level 5' or so, with 3-6" between and toward the front. I have tried putting the best pieces to the rear to draw people in but did not find it worked as well. If they are all the same size I would keep them level (probably the architect in me) as it's easier for the eye to understand. Some folks cover the walls with work but I feel that's too much for the eye to pull in and you want people to concentrate on a piece long enough to want to buy it. Grandaddyearl
