 Exciting Times At Exhibitions!

Dear Friend, 

Rachelle received her third Award of Excellence at the SAA 59th ExhibitionWow, have we been having some fun times at exhibitions lately!  We recently attended the "In The Tradition of Audubon" exhibition at the Cincinnati Museum Center with Wes' parents and then turned around the next week and flew to San Antonio, Texas for the 59th Annual Exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists (SAA).  The SAA exhibition has been consuming  Wes' time lately now that he is the Executive Director for the Society.  Thankfully, coordinating everything for over 100 artists and guests went smoothly and it's all now fond memories.  Wes put down his miniature painting brushes to design a mural for the Briscoe Museum's Community Day celebration.  What fun painting with all the kids although the Texas heat was brutal! Wes Siegrist working on a mural

Rachelle was ecstatically surprised to receive her third Award of Excellence with the SAA at the exhibition.  These awards are the highest honor for the Society and coveted since they are the sole means of achieving Master Signature Membership with the SAA.  Rachelle's just two awards away from the honor now so the pressure is on!

We're actually off relaxing on a camping trip as you read this.  Time to recharge the batteries doing nothing stressful for a few days.  It's still terribly dry here in the Smokies so the outlook for fall color is bleak.  Some of our trees have already dropped 3/4s of their leaves and the garden needs water almost daily.  We hope this newsletter finds you well!  ~ Wes & Rachelle
