For the established or professional artists, or beginners wanting to work in the traditional manner, we offer a large range of canvas and stretchers. Art Shed has the Italian Caravaggio range of linen and cotton canvas, including their coloured or clear primed varieties. We are also the Queensland distributors for "The Wholesale Canvas Company" (as advertised) and of course we have our range of Mont Marte canvas on a roll. We sell pine as well as Heavy Duty Victorian Ash hardwood timber stretchers and crossbars. We have pliers and staple guns and D-rings as well- all the bits and pieces.
Artist canvas can be supported in many other ways.
These supports generally result in a thinner but more rigid support. They are popular with the outdoor or plein-air painters. Generally the sizes remain small for portability (see Manny’s art blog). Unlike most of the pre-stretched canvases, especially the "thick" profiles, these thinner supports will likely require framing to display the work.
