Siegrist's - Coast-to-coast museum exhibition!

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

To open May 15 at the Nevada State Museum

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. 

Classic 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.

EXQUISITE MINIATURES BY WES ANDRACHELLE SIEGRIST premiered at the prestigious R.W. Norton Art Gallery, in Shreveport, LA in 2010.  The Norton Art Gallery is home to one of the great museum miniature collections in the United States.
