Handymen is the usual Search the List category for this - though if you can physically do it, the normal serrated edge or hook-type picture hangers should work for this size paintings - the normal size for normal weight/softwood/plastic/aluminum framed ones, the heavy-duty size for hardwood or heavy glass framed ones - or two heavy-duty type for heavier frames up to about 50 pounds, beyond which through-wall insert and toggle type anchors and a heavy duty screwed-in type hook should be used.


This sort of hanger is what I am talking about for normal weight frames, depending on whether paintings/picture frames have hanger wire on them or not.

Here is the Amazon page with various types of hangers suitable mostly for plaster/drywall - you need to drill and use inserts in concrete / brick so if not a DIY'er maybe a Handyman in that case.

If you want these perfectly aligned across the tops in row(s), then you or the handyman will need a long level or (easier) a laser level, so be sure to stipulate that when you talk to him.
