Please return this very important piece of work - no questions asked!
The Friends of Shorewood Library recently staged a lovely exhibition of original artwork by Shorewood residents. The exhibit is currently on display at the Library (corner of Murray Ave. and Shorewood Blvd.) through August 29. It is a celebration of the many talents that we are proud to share within our community and a way to acknowledge our residents.
Unfortunately, one of the pieces in the exhibition was stolen right off the wall! How could this happen? How could someone be so dishonest to take a piece of original art off the Library wall? Will the person place it on his/her own wall at home for enjoyment - yet, every time they look at it will that person be proud of the fact that the art was STOLEN?
I am the artist who created the missing piece of artwork. It was one-of-a-kind, and cannot be duplicated. The piece was composed of mixed media, mostly handmade paper, in shades of red and aqua blue. The piece was beautifully matted and framed in a carved gold wood frame. I am flattered that the thief liked the piece so much that they took it for their own. Perhaps they should have contacted me about creating a similar piece just for them. I feel violated that someone who might be my Shorewood neighbor could possibly be a thief.
i beg whoever took this piece of work - or perhaps you were an accomplice and know who was responsible for the theft - to please return it. .Just wrap it in a piece of newspaper or a plastic bag and put my name on it - BARB CAPRILE - and return it to the customer service desk at village hall (open monday to friday from 8-5). Just leave at the front desk and Vilage staff will take care of the rest.
Please do yourself a favor. You do not want this theft on your conscience. The art was titled: "Have a Heart." I am hoping you take heed, and do have a heart to return what is not yours. I look forward to getting this very special piece of work back. it holds many, many memories for me and i am just sick over losing it. Thank you for looking into your own heart and getting the artwork back to me.
Barb Caprile, Shorewood
