The appearance of two-dimensional wall artwork is oftentimes enhanced with the proper framing and matting. Frames also protect and assist in displaying artwork. Briefly, framing consists of five components: molding, glass, matting, art, and backing and each choice should complement the other components. Both artists and non-artists can benefit by taking the time to select appropriate choices, even when cost is a consideration. Here are some suggestions and guidelines to consider when artists submit an artwork to UVA for an exhibition or when non-artists purchase an unframed artwork for their own use.
