A Traveling Museum Exhibition of Miniature Paintings by Wes and Rachelle Siegrist

Wes and Rachelle Siegrist capture the attention of viewers with miniature paintings so exquisitely rendered that they are often mistaken for photographs. Miniature art has been in existence for centuries and the current revival in its popularity has given rise to miniature art societies, which in turn have given the Siegrists a platform for international recognition among peers and collectors. Their tiny treasures typically measure less than 9 square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under magnification. Consequently, Wes and Rachelle Siegrist enjoy a dimension of interactivity with viewers that few painters of standard easel-size paintings enjoy. A hallmark of their work is the ability to convey the feel of larger canvases or the essence of the natural world in miniature. It is no wonder that the Siegrists have been referred to as "World Ambassadors for Miniature Art".

This is the only South Carolina exhibition of these astonishing works. Make plans to visit!
