An article about Mira Bishop, Oliver Brothers co-owner and custom framing designer, appears in the latest issue of Art World News. The article, “Going to the Extreme with Customization,” highlights some of Mira’s most complex custom framing projects, including the invention of a new floating frame technique, and framing “in the round.”
The piece in question is an untitled painting by the celebrated 19th-century American artist, Winslow Homer, and is part of his series based on his travels to the Adirondack Mountains, located in upstate New York. Homer’s works from these trips are among his best known, and the watercolors from this series are considered to be some of his finest.
Our Lead Framing Designer Framing Mira Bishop was invited by the Tru Vue to create a show piece, currently exhibited the West Coast Art & Frame Expo and National Conference show in Las Vegas, featuring Museum Glass.

Oliver Brothers and Target Cancer Foundation location: Oliver Brothers Studio, 117 Elliott Street, #4A, Beverly, MA 01915 Join us in raising funds for rare cancers research. Rare cancers lack funding and basic research tools, and as a result, there is no treatments and a survival rate is poor. We will help raise funds for rare cancers research in two ways: When you buy a custom frame- we will donate 15% of the entire sale to Target Cancer Foundation. When you engage us to restore an artwork- we will donate a $100 to Target Cancer Foundation. Target Cancer Foundation is changing the outlook for those fighting rare cancers by funding innovative rare cancer research, fostering collaborations between researchers, and raising awareness. TaretCancer was founded by our life long friend Paul Poth, for whose cholangiocarcinoma there was no treatment or cure. Paul died in August 2009, but his mission continues in an effort to ensure that others diagnosed with rare cancers will have real treatment options – and a chance to live. If you can’t join us on November 22nd and 23rd you can make your donation

Canton Citizen, November 14th 2013 World War I monument restored, Canton, Massachusetts
In Honor of Veterans Day “There are few companies in America with the pedigree of the Oliver Brothers in Beverly, Massachusetts. For over 160 years, this company has been restoring some of the nation‘s most treasured works of art. James Oliver, the original founder of the firm, was trained and worked as an art restorer in Scotland. Some time before 1850nhe arrived in New York to build a trade that would yield the preeminent art restoration company in the United States. Moving to Boston after Civil War, this is the same firm that in 1906 restored Gilbert Stuart’s painting of General Washington that hangs in the Connecticut State Capitol. It is Oliver Brothers that just completed work on Canton’s monument to the Great War.”
