Meet Our Business Supporters

Our local picture framing shop, Jameson and Thompson Picture Framers, has a rich history of supporting the local arts community, and has been a longtime business supporter of the Eliot School. Jameson & Thompson was founded in 1985 and has been on Greenview Ave in Jamaica Plain ever since.

From the very beginning, the shop was founded to serve the artist community with high quality picture framing. Today their team serves artists, collectors, galleries all over the city, and museums of all sizes. They strive to build a bigger, stronger network of artists, craftspeople and collaborators, using their shop as a hub.

Keep an eye out for partnership framing classes with their excellent team members.
