The Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist

News for Friend!

November 2019 ~ Next Issue: December 2019 

 A Loss for Words!

 Dear Friend, 
Wow, well ... we've used up all the adjectives to describe our record-setting Exquisite Miniatures tour but we can add one more in the mix: INTERNATIONAL!  The tour will now be traveling to the brand new Douglas Family Art Centre in Kenora, Ontario, Canada in 2023.  For logistics, we presently do not plan to have the exhibition travel overseas.  We will be attending an opening reception at Brookgreen Gardens for Exquisite Miniatures on January 24th from 5-7 PM.  We'll be doing a gallery walk discussing our paintings in the exhibition the next day around 2 PM. 
The Siegrist family October 2019
We just recently enjoyed a week-long visit with Wes' parents and we managed to see quite a bit of lovely fall colors here in the upper elevations of the Smokies with them.  We're now back to working at our easels for upcoming shows and are eagerly anticipating seeing many of you in Thomasville, GA later this month for the Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival!

We’re so very thankful that Rachelle’s Dad, Larry, has made it through the first 11 days after his CAR- T cell therapy at Moffitt in Tampa, Florida! We had no idea that his Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma had returned in the form of a large mass in his abdomen when they were visiting us this summer!  We’re truly thankful that he was accepted into the Clinical Trial program at Moffitt and has been given a chance at this new highly successful treatment for certain cancers!  We're sending out a heartfelt Thank You to those of you who have been remembering him and our family in your prayers!

Exquisite Miniatures on Display at Kennedy DouglassEXQUISITE MINIATURES 
Exquisite Miniatures is on display now until December 3rd at the Kennedy-Douglass Center For The Arts in Florence, AL. Changes have happened with the tour and we usually don't share when contracts fall through in the tour due to unforeseen circumstances with venues.  The one we just shared last month in IL had to cancel but another museum was quick to fill the void.  The paintings will be at The Art & Heritage Center, Windsor (Fort Collins), CO from May 15 - August 15, 2022. The 41st venue in Canada has now been confirmed too!  We will be attending the opening reception for the exhibition at the next venue, Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina, this coming January.

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!
