The right setting or mount can make the finest gemstone sparkle and shine, and the same holds true for works of art. There’s an art to framing and it takes a keen eye to enhance that photograph, painting or memorabilia without deviating from its style or stealing the scene. Kari Schmidt of Cornerstone Framing & Design has a mobile custom picture framing showroom: a climate-controlled Mercedes Sprinter van. She works with designers, artists and the public, letting customers view the samples in their home or office with the correct lighting.
