About First Thursday:

First Thursdays in Jamaica Plain was designed as an opportunity for artists to show their work in local business's as well as promoting the business district. The Loring-Greenough House also hosts Thursdays on the Lawn where neighbors can gather to listen to music and feast from local food trucks & farmer's market.

Our goal is to host local artists and craft artisans in our space every month to help broaden our reach in the town that we love. For September, we are actively searching to host an Artist-in-Residence to coincide with JP Open Studios as well as future months.
