Hanging art without wall attachments

We're opening a small art gallery, and need a solution for hanging wall art on plaster walls, without putting holes in said walls.

It's a rather common situation, as I see this all the time: a couple cables or wires hanging from a rail mounted near the ceiling suspending the art. We now have the rails (salvaged aluminum stock with deep notch in the top to hang things from), but I'm wondering what the rest of this setup entails. Wires, cables, or even monofilament? How do we attach to the rail, and the art?
Is this something that exists solely for this purpose that I can buy, or does anyone have similar DIY approach?
