    Why mat?

    Why a mat?

    -A mat creates space/separation around the art work.

    -The right mat can enhance the art.

    -A mat allows proper centering of the art work.

    -A mat covers and protects archival hinging/attachment of the art work.

    -A mat keeps the glazing off of the art.

    -A mat provides airspace so condensation can harmlessly evaporate as the glass temperature reaches air temperature.

    -Matting can be used to tie pieces in a grouping together.

    -A mat, selected for color, can bring one's eye to a specific spot in the artwork.
