News for Friend!

Happy New Year!

 Dear Friend, 
Are you ready for an exciting 2020?  We're sure getting eager to start another show season, travel to new places and celebrate in several anniversaries and birthday highlights! It's a big year for Rachelle and we'll celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary together in July. It will mark our 31st year together as artists and we have already been extremely busy at our easels. Sorry, we can't share the new paintings just yet as we plan to submit them to upcoming juried shows.  We will have 35 new to SEWE paintings in Charleston, SC this February and hope to see many of you there.

It's also the 60th Anniversary for the Society of Animal Artists and we're excited about being at the Bronx Zoo in October to paint a mural alongside fellow artists to celebrate! The Tennessee Magazine recently interviewed us and we loved the preview and are looking forward to sharing it with you soon!

Exquisite Miniatures will open at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina on January 25th. We will be attending an Opening Reception on the 24th from 5-7 PM and will be doing a Gallery Walk to discuss our paintings on the 25th at 2 PM.  The exhibition will remain at Brookgreen until April 26th. Exquisite Miniatures has continued to grow in its epic proportions. The Tour was recently extended into 2024 with the addition of The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures in Tucson, AZ.

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!

NEW BOOK? We are considering publishing another book about our miniatures and the historic tour.  What would you like to see featured inside it?
