Gallery Wrapped Canvas

Ready To Hang On Your Customers Wall


The frame is usually 1.25″ (approx. 4cms) thick. As a result, the hardware (staples or tacks) used to secure the canvas are not visible. The sides of the canvas are prepared and primed in the same manner as the face or front. They may then be painted a solid color (usually white) or painted to continue the image appearing on the face. This method of stretching and preparing a canvas allows for a frameless presentation of the finished painting or photograph. In some competitions it is considered “framed” and ready to hang.


In canvas printing, the term “gallery wrap” refers to an image that appears on the sides of the frame as well as the front. The image on the sides is either a continuation or a reflection of the main image, or an otherwise fabricated element such as a solid color or colors derived from the adjacent image.

Gallery wrap is a very popular way to display art. However, because the edges of the canvas are wrapped over the thick bars, approximately two inches of the image (top, bottom, and sides) are not visible from the front. If the subject of an image or painting is sized and positioned correctly, the image will not be negatively affected. However, in some situations photo editing techniques are employed to fabricate additional image/material or to mirror existing content on the wrapped edges. Solid colours can also be used on the wrapped edges.

Gallery wrap vs. non gallery wrap

Gallery wrap is a method of displaying art wrapped over thick wooden bars so that there are no visible fasteners (e.g., staples or tacks). This method of stretching and preparing a canvas allows for a frame-less presentation of the finished painting.

In contrast, a non gallery wrap canvas is usually intended to be framed before presentation. The stretcher bars are often thinner, and the canvas can be secured at the sides with staples or tacks as the frame will hide them. However, thin stretcher bars can be found “gallery wrapped” as a hangable work without a frame.

Kalapana Overview Stretched Canvas Photos

Located just east of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Kalapana offers a good view of activity from Kilauea’s Puu Oo vent, the source of the volcano’s most recent activity. In March of 2009, federal, state and Hawaii county leaders officially opened the Kalapana viewing area to provide safe viewing of the current lava flow by foot. This was the first time lava has reached the sea since June 2007. Note that conditions change from day to day, so lava-viewing experiences can vary. Today there’s an entirely new coastline here with a few poignant traces of the town that once thrived here. A visit to Kalapana is a sobering reminder of the raw power of Pele. The Kalapana viewing site is located at the end of Highway 130 in Puna. The hike can take anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours depending on current conditions and demarcations so please be prepared with sturdy footwear, proper attire, sunscreen, a flashlight as well as food and plenty of water. Visitors on foot must obey all warning signs and are required to stay within permitted areas for safety purposes. A newly formed black sand beach and land area is extremely unstable, and could collapse into the ocean at any time. The Kalapana viewing area offers a chance of a lifetime, allowing you to see the birth of new life.
