Attention Burning Man 2010 Participants

Dear participants of Burning Man Project, this painting is missing.
A friend of mine has told me that I should try to reach out to Burning Man Project participants. He thinks that the painting may be used as an item to offer in trade for goods and or services. If you see it don't trade for it contact me.

this is the missing painting if it has not been destroyed it will turn up somewhere and someday i will hear about it.

These are the theories.

Someone anyone in attendance at the fundraiser could have grabbed the piece and outright sold it as there own for any amount. I do mean someone or anyone but definitely in attendance.

Someone anyone could have the piece and are planning on taking it to burning man as an item for trade barter.

Someone anyone like a drunken college kid took it on a whim and they have destroyed it for fear of being discovered.

Bottom line my work was touched and moved without my knowledge or consent. My work is damaged my work is stolen. The exhibit space was not open until and only during the event. If the work had not been moved it would not have been easily damaged or stolen.

During this event the group went into an exhibit space and decided to bring down my artwork without notifying me. In the process one painting was stolen and an other painting was scuffed and several frames marred. No one from this group , despite being aware of the violation has ever attempted to contact me and apologize, or offer information or offer to recover my painting. If the paintings had been left on the wall they would not be missing or damaged.

To go to an exhibit and remove and replace artwork without permission is simply unacceptable and unprofessional. From top to bottom this situation reeks.

It was a self centered pompus tactic.

Missing Stolen Art " Kristy" Spider House cafe U. S. Art Authority

If You have this painting it does not belong to you. it has been stolen. If you know the person who has this painting it was taken without my permission. Look that person in the eye and say "Thief"

If you know of a group called Moe's Bohemian Art Show, or Mo begg'n, or Mobegg'n, or Mo Beggeing please let me know. Apparently they felt it was okay to mingle their show and works in with mine. I would like to know their names so that I can notify the police department. They had a fundraiser last night in this space and now I have a missing painting. My Painting was taken off the wall at U.S Art Authority ? Spiderhouse Cafe!/profile.php?id=100000179589938

I know of a place where I would not hang my Art in Austin Texas.
