The next meeting of People in Business will be held Tuesday, May 27, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at GC Cuisine in Edwardsville.

Nancy Herold, president of Art of the Matter, Custom Framing and Art Gallery, will be the guest speaker for the meeting.

Art of the Matter showcases local bi-state art and specializes in custom framing.

"Our standard turnaround time is a week for custom framing," said Herold.

"Industry standards say, If you are not getting your framing done in a week there can be three things wrong: You don't have adequate technology, you don't have adequate skills or you just don't care."

At Art of the Matter highly skilled artisans put a lot of care into each piece they create, she said.

Herold has a BS from McKendree College.

She was the director of a small non-profit which supported visual and performance art.
