Answer
Hi Penny, here is a list of International Fine Art Appraisers http://www.ifaacertified.com/locate.html that can help you find someone near you. I also recommend contacting Alex Adelman of Masterworks Fine Art at alex@masterworksfineart.com . You can see his current collection at http://www.masterworksfineart.com . Take high quality images of the pieces (whole,signature,piece number, outstanding marks, etc) and attach them to your email. He will be happy to help you or point you in the right direction.
