Introduction: Hi, I'm an artist with an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and my wife and I started an artist run gallery in Los Angeles. My availability for installation is often limited, but if I have an opening I'd love to help you out. I've been installing art professionally for over a decade in galleries and institutions in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and the Bay Area. No job is too large or too small, we'll figure out a way to make it work! warmly, Brendan

Brendan was truly amazing. His work is extremely professional and all of my art was hung to the same standard as if it were in an art gallery. Highly recommend !

Only great things to say about Brendan! He showed up exactly on time, tools in hand. He measured everything precisely, taped everything out, let me review and provide feedback before he started putting in the hardware and hanging things. Also, super friendly and interesting guy. I had him hang 19 items and I'm going to hire him again for round two (another few paintings plus a gallery wall in stairway). I specifically hired him because I wanted his professional expertise and he's an artist himself. I asked his opinion on where things should go generally, he suggested all of the heights and explained why something should be higher, lower, or not perfectly centered because of furniture, other art, or architectural features around it. Having professionally hung artwork really makes a huge difference in the overall finish of place.

I have used Brendan for two installs now, and he is outstanding. He is extremely detailed, precise, communicative, punctual, and also has a great can-do attitude. He has hung drapery and art for me and also assembled furniture. I will definitely use him again on future projects.

I cannot add enough appreciative comments to the existing rave reviews for Brendan. He was knocking at our door 3 min before the scheduled time and despite being here for 6 hours working around kids and a dog and all the Covid protocols, he remained not just professional but also really enthusiastic and pleasant. His work is exceptional, he definitely helped with placement and layout in ways that made a huge difference in the final product. Thank you Brendan; I can't wait to add to our art collection just so we can have you back for round 2!

Had a great experience with Brendan and hanging a gallery wall in my space. He took my vague, very minimal direction, ran with it, came up with something beautiful and suggested some things out of the scope of the original project. Highly recommended!
