Gallery Wrap

About Gallery Wrap

Gallery wrap is a method of stretching an artist’s canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides of the (Stretcher Bar or strainer bars) and is secured to the back of the wooden frame.

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 colour or colours 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. Mirrored edge and content aware fill can be used as gallery wrap options. Selected solid colours can also be used on the wrapped edges.
