From simply separating a piece of art from the frame’s glazing or creating a transition between the work and the frame, to highlighting specific colors and visual elements, playing with proportions or coordinating with current decor, the use of mat boards spans a variety of functions. Mat boards are utilized with many different types of framing projects, and their artistic applications have expanded and evolved over time. Let’s explore these trends as well as their impact on current offerings and how you can leverage them to enhance your framed art and photography.
