Preparing Gallery and Museum Wraps
The next meeting of the Pasadena Photochromers will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 26, in the rear conference room at the Pasadena Public Library branch at 140 S. Altadena Drive.
Ken Hornbrook will demonstrate how to prepare photos to be presented as gallery or museum wraps.
Unlike traditional canvas mounting, with gallery wraps, the image is printed directly onto canvas. The image extends over the sides of the canvas, which is stretched over a frame. No frame is needed.
With museum wraps, photos are printed on fabric, which is mounted onto stretcher bars with no visible staples on the edge of the frame. Edges are painted dark. No framing is necessary.
Ken will demonstrate how to prepare image files for gallery or museum wraps and then how to properly stretch the fabric on which the photos have been printed.
