The Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist

News for Friend!

May 2020 ~ Next Issue: June 2020 

Staying Safe, Healthy, and Having Fun!

 Dear Friend, 
Well, we suspect you are like us and blazing through projects around the house and home.  Our wooded yard is more manicured than it's been in over a decade and boy, were we glad when the yard work needed to be done!  Isolation isn't anything new to artists.  We are used to sitting at home alone all day working.  We have missed our weekly get-togethers with friends and neighbors at our home or theirs, but all are staying safe and healthy.  We are looking forward to getting back out with our kayaks soon.

The show news hasn't changed much.  We suspect it will be into 2021 before anything like a normal art show returns.  At least three of our exhibitions listed below are online.  We have decided not to physically attend the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival this November.  They are considering an online component and if so, we will take part.  News for our Exquisite Miniatures tour is down below.

The Exquisite Miniatures tour has been impacted by the closures and the schedule is still pending.  We will update it as soon as the dates are finalized.  Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina is expected to reopen the galleries soon.  As of now, they may extend the display of Exquisite Miniatures into July but this has not yet been confirmed.

Paintings are being sold on the tour and shipped to collectors at the close of that venue. Copies of our The World of Nature In Miniature book are usually available in the museum gift shops too!
