Small paintings exhibited on a large scale, Society of Animal Artists Signature members Wes and Rachelle Siegrist's coast to coast museum exhibitions!
A Traveling Exhibition of
David J. Wagner,
Ph.D., Curator/Tour Director
Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are an American husband and wife team who mesmerize viewers
with miniature paintings so exquisitely crafted that they are often mistaken
for tiny photographs. Their tiny
treasures, as collectors often refer to them, typically measure less than 9
square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under
magnification! A hallmark of their work
is their ability to convey the feeling of a larger canvass or the essence of
the natural world in miniature.
examples of their miniatures are currently on a three-year, coast-to-coast
museum exhibition tour produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C., with its next stop
coming up at the Nevada State Museum in Carson City. EXQUISITEMINIATURES will be the main attraction at the Nevada State Museum
throughout the Summer tourist season of 2012.
Wes andRachelle Siegrist are members of the The Society of Animal Artists, in addition
to members of the Miniature Artists of America, the Miniature Art Society of Florida, the Miniature Painters,
Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington, D.C., the Cider Painters of
America, and the Hilliard Society of England.
They are the authors of the world’s first standard definition of
miniature art adopted by the Association of
Miniaturist Artists. Small
wonder, therefore, that the Siegrists have been referred to as “World
Ambassadors for Miniature Art.”
EXQUISITE MINIATURES consists of fifty signature
paintings including landscapes, portraits, still lifes, wildlife, and other
subjects by Wes and Rachelle Siegrist.
The exhibition is accompanied by a book of the same title about Wes
and Rachelle Siegrist and their art,
with an introduction by David J. Wagner.
