What is canvas art?

You may have heard your friends talking about their beautiful new gallery wrapped canvas print they just received from CanvasHQ and you may be wondering exactly what they are talking about and asking yourself, “What is a Gallery Wrap?” or “What is this whole canvas art thing all about?” The best definition I can give you as to what canvas art or a gallery wrap is: A technique where an artist canvas is stretched over a frame and is secured to the back of the wooden frame so that no hardware (staples) are visible. This allows for the image to wrap around the edges of the canvas, thus giving you a frameless piece of art. The image on the side of the canvas can be a continuation of the image (image wrap), a reflection of the edges of the image (mirror wrap) , or any color you like (solid border).
