Robert, if the bricks have any space between them, I mean, if the mortar
isn't flush with the brick, you can get "brick clips" for hanging art. They
don't deface the brick at all, can be moved around and can handle fairly
heavy framed work. A good framing supply will have them.

I've hung quite a lot of my own work with adhesive backed Velcro from Wal
Mart's fabric department, the kind that comes on a big roll, and sells by
the foot. The large size, cut in squares, should work for matted things.

I, too, am a big fan of ATG tape, (3M, I believe) but have never tried
hanging anything on walls with it. I should think it would work great for
plain paper. If you want one of the guns (you can still use the tape without
the gun) I encourage you to get the newest design, the bright yellow one
that has been out two or three years (the new SAX catalog still shows only
the old blue one) for about $19. It works so much better, never ever clogs,
and takes the supersize rolls. You'll start using it for all sorts of
interesting things!

Hope that helps
Betty
