Schedule of Events

2:00pm - 4:00pm: Gallery Wall Design

Presented by Jameson & Thompson Picture Framers

We'll share tips for designing, framing, and installing a great gallery ("salon style") wall for any space, large or small. Our team of experienced frame designers will walk you through the options we recommend when assembling a wall or frames. With even a small group of pieces, you can create a fun, energetic design that's sure to make an impression.

Jameson & Thompson Picture Framers was established in 1985 in Jamaica Plain. Since then, our team has continued a tradition of excellence in conservation framing, corporate and gallery installation, and art consultation. Over the past 35 years we have grown steadily, building a loyal following throughout New England.

Scout is Northeastern's one and only student-led design organization. We believe that the most valuable learning comes when you plunge into something you have little or no previous experience in. Our design community provides mentorship and guidance when students need help navigating uncharted territories. We share with one another what we have learned from our classes, co-op, and freelance work so we each grow from every semester in Scout.
