Q&A: Which Type of Wall Art is Right for Me?

Choosing wall art of your pet instantly makes your house feel like a home, but it can also feel overwhelming if you’re unsure about how to decide which type is right for you. There are several factors you must consider, ranging from the actual image itself to the space in which you plan to display it. Bark & Gold Photography offers four types of wall art: artisan wood, framed acrylics, framed prints, and gallery-wrapped canvases. Let’s start with the two types that most people are familiar with: gallery-wrapped canvases and framed prints.

Framed Prints

Framed prints are ideal for clients that value traditional and timeless art. Featuring an archival-quality, luxury linen photographic paper showcased in an Italian genuine solid wood frame with a hand-crafted finish and beautiful natural grain or rustic and repurposed barn wood from California, these pieces suit a variety of home decor styles and remain a popular choice for many Bark & Gold Photography clients.

Framed prints can be matted or unmatted; however, matting your photo has several visual and functional benefits, including providing room for the paper to expand and contract, allowing for adequate air circulation to prevent moisture from condensing inside the frame, and even enhancing the colors of your image or room decor.

Gallery-Wrapped Canvases

For a mix of contemporary and traditional, gallery-wrapped canvases are a familiar favorite and many clients like the wrapped-image style. Wall art groupings look fantastic with canvases thanks to their versatile sizes and simple style, but they also stand well on their own.

Their gallery-wrapped appearance, which wraps the edges of the image around to the edge of an internal frame, offers a clean, eye-catching display that juts out slightly from the wall. Because of that, even just one large canvas, such as the 3×40 show above, makes a stunning statement piece.

Artisan Wood

If you want a true one-of-a-kind piece, artisan wood is the way to go! Durable and slightly rustic, artisan wood merges the rich color of a traditional print with the beauty of fine-grained white birch. Each piece is hand-sanded giving this type of wall art an artisan-made feel yet boasts a meticulous attention to detail in its construction.

Framed Acrylics

For clients who appreciate the finer things, framed acrylics are especially appealing. As Bark & Gold Photography’s premiere wall art pieces, framed acrylics combine clean lines with a modern touch. Sessions with images featuring cityscapes, vibrant colors, or urban architecture look absolutely stunning in an acrylic finish. Each framed acrylic is hand-crafted by international artisans for unmatched brilliance and detail.
