News for Friend!

October 2018 ~ Next Issue: November 2018 

Another Exciting Year of Shows!

Dear Friend,  

It's that time of year again!  I guess it's a leftover from the days of when we really struggled financially as artists.  Back in those days, the summer season was a drought of shows and sales so we yearned for the fall to return both for paying the bills but also for all the fun adventures we would soon be having with peers and friends.

We're both working to get a variety of brand new paintings finished for the upcoming Waterfowl and Plantation Wildlife Art Festivals.  We will have 35-40 paintings new to these shows and are looking forward to seeing so many of you again in person!
Here are some of our latest available paintings:
B. J. by Rachelle Siegrist
"B.J." by Rachelle, 3 ½ x 3 ½ inches
The Incubator by Wes Siegrist
"The Incubator" by Wes, 3 ½ x 5 ½ inches
More new paintings can be seen on the website and on our Facebook pages.
Siegrist Exquisite Miniatures Exhibition at the Stamford Museum
Opening Reception at the Stamford Museum
From now until January 1st, 2019, the tour will be at  The Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Stamford, CT.  

We'll be updating the exhibition with new panels and artwork before it opens on January 20th, 2019 at The Hickory Museum of Art, Hickory, NC.  We will be present for the Opening Reception at the Hickory Museum of Art and will be doing a Gallery Walk and possibly a presentation on Sunday afternoon on the 20th.

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 books are usually available in the museum gift shops too! The EM Tour is the only place where you can still purchase copies of Exquisite Miniatures by Wes & Rachelle Siegrist (Less than a dozen copies remain!)
