If you are storing watercolor or any paper material art should be attached with acid free paper.
The acid free paper is a must. I suggest that you don't store art. It should always be on display. If you are talking investment pieces, then you need to put them in a climate controlled storage. Careful of patina on bronzes, wrap in neutral tissue.
Water colours or pastels, or any other paper based pictorial art, including photographs, if they are to be framed should be mounted on archival mounting board, a window mount made with archival board and archival tape to hold the thing together, then framed behind glass with an archival backing board to the frame.
Oil and acrylic paintings are generally robust enough no to deeed that sort of nursing, a straight forward open frame usually being suficient. However, acrylic paintings on paper will probably need the same archival nursing as water colour and pastels.
If paper based paintings and photograps are not to be framed, interleave individual works with archival tissue paper, or glassine sheets.
