Gallery wraps may need a slightly larger frame to clear the folded canvas corners. Quite often, a float frame can provide an elegant finish around a gallery wrap without taking away from the charm of the canvas.

 

Traditional Mats and Frames

Many people prefer a traditional print in a frame. All of my smaller prints and some of the larger ones are offered with acid-free mats and backing boards. Standard mat color is white, in an elegant 6- or 8-ply thick gallery-style board. Panoramic prints are presented in a double white mat. See the chart below for image sizes and their corresponding mat/frame sizes.

At shows, I hang much of my work in a classic wood frame, Palladio, which is an elegant, yet rustic framing style, with conservation anti-reflection glass. Prices for the Palladio style are available on my portfolio site, and reflect the extra cost for museum grade framing.

Small and medium prints are framed using a 3/4" profile, and are available on the portfolio site. The jumbo prints can be purchased in a brushed aluminum frame or in the wood style. Framed print prices on this site are based my standard frame style for that size. elegant, yet rustic framing style, with conservation anti-reflection glass. Prices for the Palladio style are available on my portfolio site, and reflect the extra cost for museum grade framing.

If you'd like a different style (and there are many available), please call me to discuss your specifics rather than ordering directly from the site.

Canvas Gallery Wraps

Other folks prefer a frameless presentation -- canvas gallery wraps are perfect for this. The print is made on ultra-premium quality Breathing Color Crystalline canvas, which has a UV-protective varnish embedded in the canvas. The print is then stretched on heavy-duty 1 1/2" stretcher strips with hanging hardware. The resultant image is ready to hang on the wall, or can be framed for additional impact. You may want to consult with your local framer regarding options on framing larger (72" and above) work. Typically I do not recommend frames for the panoramic canvas wraps -- they look great on their own!
