QUESTION: Joseph,  I've recently acquired two original pieces of artwork that I'm having difficulty identifying.  One is named "July Heat" by Miriam Haworth '52.  The other is named "Boat & Wharf" by (illegible first name) Bindford '54.  They are hand signed and have some other numbers at the bottom, as if they were prints.  The actual images (inside the matting) measure around 17x8.  They are both framed identically and may have been purchased at the same time.  Any info that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

ANSWER: Can you send me a close-up of the signature for Bindford?  I found basic information from google about Miriam Haworth but nothing substantial.
