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.


Product Description

Carter Shields Cabin Canvas Wall Prints

Carter Shields Cabin Canvas Wall Prints

The Carter Shields Cabin is believed to have been built in the 1830s. Of all the most visited landmarks in Cades Cove, this charming scene of the Carter Shields cabin is said to be the most photographed. It is a perennial favorite of out-of-state tourists and, for those shopping at the local art galleries and shops, is often the most requested by those looking for a beautiful memento of their visit to the Great Smoky Mountains. Steve has chosen to paint this scene at its most stunning when the little dogwood tree is in full bloom. The Carter Shields Cabin stands at the last homestead on the Cades Cove driving loop. George Washington “Carter” Shields lived in his Cades Cove cabin from 1910 through 1921. A shield was crippled in the Battle of Shiloh. Dogwood trees bloom here in the early spring making this cabin one of the loveliest in the Cades Cove. Robert Shields moved his family into Cades Cove in the early 1820s to avoid a typhoid epidemic at Chilhowee. He was active in the Baptist Church and served as Justice of the Peace and member of the County Court. As to this quaint little cabin’s history, it was built after Washington “Carter” Shields bought the land in 1910. Decades before that, Mr. Shields was wounded and crippled for life in the Civil War at Shiloh. He married after the war and moved to Kansas. He came to the Cove in 1906 before purchasing this piece of land. One would think that an old soldier would find lifelong contentment here, but he moved away after only eleven years.
