The Miniature Paintings of Wes & Rachelle Siegrist

News for Friend!

June 2020 ~ Next Issue: July 2020 

One Day At A Time!

 Dear Friend, 
Each day seems a new adventure in isolation particularly when the weather is not conducive to working outside in the yard and garden but our forecast has dramatically improved as we prepare this newsletter.  We'll be finishing up our spring projects and visiting the lake this week so there should be plenty of fun photos in the July newsletter.  We do see each day as an opportunity to do something we "didn't have time for" before or may not have even considered.  The little things do seem to bring more joy now!

June through August has always been a slow time for us since almost all our shows take place in the fall and spring.  A few have been extended so note that on the schedule below and be sure to check the website as we update it and the blog weekly.  Wes is working on tasks with the Society of Animal Artists and Rachelle is currently delightedly occupied with a very fun commission (see below and the blog). We've also been doing framing and getting ready for the largest special offer we've ever had involving our miniature paintings.

We started doing special offers almost 20 years ago now, when we moved to Tennessee.  While in Florida, we had an annual open studio each December and had some wonderful visits from collectors to our home especially since we had so many that lived within a few hours of us.  That was no longer an option living in Tennessee, so we opted to try something different and have done a special offer almost every year with each one being somewhat different from the others.

This year, we have selected over 50 paintings that are older and most are unframed. Their prices include shipping and insurance to you and we'll try to frame as many as we can with our available inventory of frames.  Unlike prior special offers, this one starts immediately and has no set end date.

See below to participate in the offer.
Our 2020 Special Offer is now online with available paintings being sold first-come, first-served. Just email us to make a purchase. We will update the price list to indicate sold works as often as we can and post a date on the file each time we do. The price list is included inside the folder or may be requested from us via email.
Painting of old shrimp boats by Wes SiegristPainting of a blacksmith by Wes Siegrist
Guaymas Shrimpers and The Blacksmith by Wes are two of at least six of our paintings recently sold in the exhibition while at Brookgreen Gardens.

The Exquisite Miniatures tour has been impacted by closures and the exact schedule is still pending in some places and will be updated with any changes. Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina is open and accepting visitors following the guidelines for entering the gallery to see our exhibition. They will continue to display Exquisite Miniatures until the exhibition ships to the next venue in June. The next exhibit at Shafer Art Gallery (Barton Community College) in Great Bend, KS  has been rescheduled to start July 1st and remain until August 15th.

Special thanks to all those who added our paintings to their cherished collections during the time at Brookgreen Gardens! One venue in Florida is also currently considering bringing Exquisite Miniatures back for an encore in 2024!

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!
Please share this history-making tour with your friends and family!
