Margaret Kilgallen Art Stolen from Gallery 16

Posted By on Thu, Oct 16, 2008 at 12:20 PM


We just got a letter (as did SFist):

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday, two Margaret Kilgallen pieces were stolen from Gallery 16. These paintings were included in our current Fifteenth Anniversary exhibition. The works were not for sale, but belonged to Griff and were given to him by Margaret back in the mid 90's. Needless to say they are of great value to him personally.

I am attaching images of the two pieces here, and I would be immensely grateful if you could forward this along to as many people as you think might be able to help, or post this anywhere visible. "Easy" was approximately 7" x 12", and the Untitled (profile) was approximately 17" x 12", both enamel on wood panel. There is very little of Margaret's

original work out there, if any, and so we are asking that everyone please keep their eyes and ears open with respect to these two works. Should they resurface for sale, or should you see these in a private residence, we ask that you please contact us immediately. Any information would be much appreciated. We can be contacted at, or at 415.626.7495.

Thank you so much,

Vanessa Blaikie

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
