Not very good at DIY work, but we have some artwork done on 2ft by 4ft fiberboard panels that I want to put up on my walls.

The easy solution is to just drill through and put screws into drywall anchors, but the downside there is there'll be 4 visible screws on each painting (there are 9 paintings).

What are the other options to put them up easily and invisibly?

Why not hang them like typical wall artwork? –  iLikeDirt Jun 12 at 15:56
    
How would you do that? Any other art I have always has a wire attached to the back, how would I do that to the fiberboards? (sorry, like I said, not very good at DIY but trying to start!) –  Ashwin Jun 12 at 15:59
    
Most hardware stores will have picture wire and the eyelets you need. If you don't think the eyelets will hold in the fiber board you can opt to put some heavy duty saw tooth hangers on the back of your artwork. Again, the hardware store will have these next to the picture hanging wire. –  diceless Jun 12 at 16:03
    
Thank you! How would you attach the eyelets to the board? Or the saw tooth hangers? –  Ashwin Jun 12 at 17:00
    
Since this is artwork, I wouldn't do anything to damage the pieces. I would mount the panels in frames and hang the frame. This would provide no visible hanging hardware as well as keep the artwork intact –  Ghost Jun 12 at 17:09

I've used 3M's hook and loop fasteners to hang pictures for years and they have held well. They are sold at a variety of locations. When I use them I stick one part to the picture first. Then I hook the other part to it, peel the film off to expose the sticky side, and carefully press against wall. It helps to have a strip of masking tape that is level and a corner piece of masking tape as guides.
