A stretcher frame is used for paintings on canvas. The canvas is stretched over a timber frame and stapled to the back, hiding the timber. This can be hung on the wall as is or a timber moulding placed around the outside.

The protection of artwork is most iimportant to us at Macarthur Frameworks & Gallery. We only use quality materials and techniques when stretching your artwork. If needed we put a bracing panel to strengthen the stretcher.


High quality custom picture framing and gallery featuring local artists' paintings, photographs, sculptures, glassware and Australian made giftware located in Ballarat.
