What does ‘stretched' and 'framed’ mean?

The vast majority of artworks at Red Kangaroo Gallery are painted on linen or canvas and are neither 'stretched' or 'framed' - this allows us to be able to deliver the artwork to you easily via Australia Post in a tube.

When we say the artwork is ‘stretched’ we mean the artwork has been stretched over a wooden frame – there is no border around the artwork or glass in front of the painting.

When we say the artwork is 'framed' we mean that the artwork has a border or frame around it. If the artwork is a screenprint, photograph or drawing it may also have glass or perspex over it as well.
