About Us

Picture This began in 1984 as a sideline business for two Alaskan school teachers, Dennis Johnson and Jim Starry. In the early years, Picture This was an art gallery featuring the work of Alaskan artists along with national artists and custom framing. Over time, our business has grown to meet the needs of clients and the changing marketplace in Alaska. Today, we define ourselves as a stylish art, gift and décor boutique.

Picture This specializes in Alaskan and regional art prints, giclees, original paintings, jewelry, and photography. We have a custom framing department praised by clients and artists alike for our creativity as well as impeccable standards in quality. We also have an extensive selection of home décor and giftware made in Alaska, the lower 48 and from abroad. Picture This is well known as a great place to shop for unique gifts and specialty items.

Picture This is a family run business, now exclusively owned by Dennis Johnson. Dennis has been an Eagle River resident for 37 years and plays an active part in the community. He is a longstanding member of the Chugiak Eagle River Chamber of Commerce, an annual “Partner in Schools” sponsor and supports dozens of non-profit groups and school sports programs in their fundraising efforts each year. Dennis has assisted a number of local artists in advancing their careers by publishing prints of their work, and marketing their art successfully through the gallery.

As an avid outdoorsman and a skilled fly fisherman, Dennis has rafted and fished many of Alaska’s remote and pristine rivers. He is also the owner of Jitters Coffee House, located next door to Picture This.
