On Friday,Nov. 16 at 5:30 there will be a talk by Wes Siegrist followed by a gallery walk. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.

Minature paintings are so exquisitely crafted that they are often mistaken for tiny photographs. Viewed under magnification the paintings convey a feeling of a larger canvas and the essence of the natural world in miniature.
