Help Me Find My Stolen Art

I need your help.

I had hoped to write a positive post about the great show I had last weekend and about the pieces that found new homes with new collectors. But that will have to wait until another day.

All four of the pieces below, plus two others which I unfortunately didn’t have photos of, were stolen from my booth at an outdoor show in Virginia the night of May 17-18, 2014.

When I last saw them as I closed up my tent last Saturday night, all of the pieces were mounted on artist’s canvas painted black. Geranium, below left, is 16″ w x 12″ h. Song of the Heart, below right, is 20″ h x 20″ w. City Streets, at the bottom of the page, is two panels from a triptych and each panel is 20″ h x 20″ w. They are all signed on the back of the canvas and my name, Cindy Grisdela, is free motion stitched onto the front of each piece. If you right-click on each photo, you’ll be able to pull up a larger image.

The two other pieces were smaller. Peacock Drive is 12″ x 12″ in pastel colors. It has an improvisational stripe including two small house shapes running horizontally, an upper blue border and a lower green one. Tropicana is 8″ x 8″ with an orange-red central block and blue borders.

The show has been notified, a police report has been filed, and I’m also posting the ones I have pictures of on www.LostQuilt.com.

If you see any of these quilts, or have any information about them, please email meĀ at cpgrisdela@gmail.com. They are important to me and I would like to have them back!

Thanks in advance for your help.
