Simply so, how do you show unframed art?

Bulldog clips, like the ones shown here, come in all sizes and are an excellent way to display posters, prints, and other unframed art. Install one or two nails where you'd like to hang your artwork, loop the top of the clip over the nail, and attach your artwork.

Subsequently, question is, should prints be framed with glass? Paintings and other Art are not placed behind glass. Canvas prints are not placed behind glass. However prints on photographic paper seem to need glass protection.

Consequently, how do I display my art prints?

Can you hang canvas without frame?

Canvases can be secured on the wall without a frame, too, but only if they're not too large or unweildy—and they'll look better if the sides of the canvas are painted rather than blank; simply prop the open section inside the wood frame onto two sizeable nails (which will keep the piece more level than using one).
