Gallery wrapping is a method of stretching a canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar (1.5″ depth wood frame), and is secured to the back of the wooden frame with staples. This is the most common frame for canvas.
Gallery Wrapped With Floating Frame
Gallery wrapped with floating frame is a method of mounting a wrapped canvas inside a frame so it looks like it’s floating. The frame should be the same depth or deeper as the gallery wrap. This is becoming a very popular style of framing, but cost a little more.
