The Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist

News for Friend!

September 2019 ~ Next Issue: October 2019 

 BUSY, busy and BUSY!

Dear Friend, 

Whew ... we almost forgot the email newsletter this month since things have been so hectic in the studio.  There's also been the constant concern lately with Dorian and family in Florida.

Don't think we're working too hard though, we've still been getting our daily exercise in the form of walks, bike rides or swims at the river.  We even managed to get out one day kayaking this last week. 
However, multiple upcoming shows and framing over a dozen new paintings for them, has kept us busy. We each managed to finish several new paintings lately which can be seen on the blog, website or Facebook.

Wes has been consumed with tasks relating to being the Executive Director for the Society of Animal Artists.  He's been planning and coordinating activities, parties, a banquet and ride-sharing for almost 100 artists and guests that will be attending the opening weekend of the 59th Annual Exhibition later this month.  He recently finished all the forms and paperwork for returning 58 artworks to artists around the world from last year's touring exhibition.  A real learning curve for sure especially with international shipments!  The good news is that we'll both soon be enjoying the fruits of all the labor in San Antonio, Texas at the Briscoe Western Art Museum.

Part of the SAA exhibition at the Briscoe Museum will be a community day sponsored by the museum that will involve a variety of activities involving the public interacting with SAA members.  There will be presentations, sketching, demonstrations and even a mural painting project!  Guess who got tapped to design the 5 x 10-foot mural?  Yes, it was Wes the miniature painter!  It's been over 30 years since he worked on anything to this scale!  Even the color sketch, at 5 x 10 inches was large!  This is just a concept and the artists/public working on the mural may change it as they wish but we know we'll all have fun at it!
Exquisite Miniatures will be on display from September 15th – December 3rd at the Kennedy-Douglass Center For The Arts, Florence, AL. We're delighted to announce the addition of the fortieth venue to the tour! From May 15 - August 15, 2022, the exhibition will be at the  Cedarhurst Center For The Arts in Mount Vernon, IL.

Would you like to see Exquisite Miniatures in your area?  Please feel free to suggest museum venues especially if you have a contact relationship with the staff!

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!
