Exquisite Miniatures - one of two winter exhibits
December 05 - April 11, 2015
Opening Reception December 05, 2014 5-8 PM

Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are a husband and wife team specializing in exquisite miniature watercolor paintings so exquisitely rendered that they are often mistaken for photographs. Painting in the tradition of American Revival Period Miniaturists, the tiny paintings appear even more detailed under magnification, affording both the viewer and the artists a dimension of interactivity. The Seigrists convey the feel of larger canvases or the essence of the natural world in miniature in their small works. It is no small wonder, therefore, that the Siegrists have been referred to as "World Ambassadors for Miniature Art".
