How To Hang Artwork Without Nails?

Good Questions

Q: We recently moved into an old Victorian in the city. In the living room, we were successfully able to hang artwork (using S-shaped moulding hooks and metal wire) on two of the walls (that are straight-edged). However, the two other walls in the room have angled/diagonal ceilings (larger photo below), so we're wary of using the same S-shaped moulding hooks. We also can't nail anything into the walls. Any idea on how best to hang not-so-heavy artwork from these angled ceilings?

We are in a particular bind because the angled ceilings are on the sides of the room that have the most surface area on which to hang our artwork! Any, any, any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks so much in advance!
