ADJECTIVE Art & Framing was founded in 2011 by Alexander D. Jacobson. We build frames for artists, galleries, museums, and collectors throughout New England and beyond. Starting out in a basement, Alex honed the craft of building high-quality contemporary picture frames. In 2013, we moved to South Boston and our business began to flourish. In February 2018, we moved again to a 7000 sf facility in Stoughton, MA. With this move, we're able to take on larger and more complex projects while turning around our individual clients' projects quickly. We pride ourselves on having the flexibility to work on a wide range of projects, big or small and hope to work with you to find creative solutions to your picture framing needs.

Our team continues to develop as we announced a partnership in 2016 between ADJECTIVE and Jameson & Thompson Picture Framers in Jamaica Plain, MA. In addition to custom framing, J&T offers conservation referrals, collection inventory management, and employs a full-time art installer with expertise in hanging artwork for institutions and private clients alike. Through combining our staff and resources, we have expanded our project capacity and now handle a wider array of framing and installation projects.

In early 2016, ADJECTIVE began selling select works on paper though ADJFRAMES.COM. We have selected a group of artists that represent a mix of media, styles, and backgrounds, from both national and international artists. We plan to expand this collection to include new artists on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. 

ADJFRAMES.COM is in the unique position of being an online art sales gallery run by a museum quality custom framer. Specific frame profiles have all been built in consultation with each artist and carefully selected to complement each piece. We encourage you to purchase your fine art pieces in solid hardwood frames befitting the quality of the work and ensuring their safe conservation and beautiful presentation.
