Event Details

Doors open at 6:30, Presentation Starts at 7 pm.

Come and learn about the World of Miniatures, with the artists featured in our newest traveling exhibit, Exquisite Miniatures, Wes and Rachelle Siegrist. They will be giving us an  overview of miniature art history from where it started to the development of modern societies and the status of today.

Wes & Rachelle Siegrist capture the attention of viewers not with outstretched canvas but with miniature paintings so exquisitely rendered that they are often mistaken for photographs. A hallmark of their work is the ability to convey the feel of larger canvases or the essence of the natural world in miniature. It is no small wonder, therefore, that the Siegrists have been referred to as “World Ambassadors for Miniature Art”.

The Artists exhibited for decades in major wildlife expositions and shows in the United States and currently participate in numerous international miniature art exhibitions. They have exhibited their miniatures in venues such as Birds in Art (Both Artists are in the Woodson Museum’s Permanent Collection), Art of the Animal Kingdom, the Society of Animal Artists Annual Exhibitions (Rachelle has received their highest honor, The Award of Excellence, four times!) and the Smithsonian Institution.
