Exquisite Miniatures II Traveling Exhibition
We are pleased to host an exhibit of all new miniature works by renown miniature painting artists Wes and Rachelle Siegrist. The Exquisite Miniatures II exhibit is produced by David J. Wagner, Ph.D. Curator/Tour Director.
On Friday, Nov. 16 at 5:30 p.m. 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.
Exhibition is available for display at museums and art centers; for information contact Exquisite Miniatures Tour Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (414)221-6878.
